La Villa Helena is the best guest house I have stayed in in India. It is an excellent representation of Pondicherry's French colonial heritage. When you walk in you feel like you are in a different time period with all of its beautiful antique furniture. The service is very efficient which is something hard to find in India. It is very clean and if there is anything that you need the manager will help provide or arrange for you. Its location is also very practical as it is in the heart of the colonial side of Pondicherry. You can enjoy a stroll on the wide streets around it full of shops and restaurants. It is also very quite and peaceful. Once you go inside you can forget about the ruckus of the city and relax in its beautiful courtyard with a cup of coffee or tea and homemade french pastries. I stayed there for 3 nights and had an absolute lovely time. The breakfast was my favorite part! Toasted fresh baguettes with fruits and coffee... yum! :)
