The House, built by a Tamil merchant family,is a no frills gleaming beauty, dressed only by its mellow rosewood columns and verandas, and the riot of greenery that fills its first inner courtyard. But step off its shaded porch and you are plunged into the Pondicherry

Feel quite at home in our cozy rooms.
Unfortunately can’t answer that question. Very limited on street parking and unaware of off street parking. You will need to check with owner.

Are pets allowed ?
Im not sure i was travelling from Australia to get there and i don't own a dog or cat. Im sorry i can't be of more help. Might be best to call them. I do know that if you have a driver that gets you there they have facilities to help your driver have a shower and a bed cheaply. Sorry i can't be of more help. Glenn
