My friend and I were made very welcome in this beautiful house near Pondichery. The food was excellent and the accommodation impeccable. Vijaya Gascon had organised a wonderful, very personalised tour of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka for us and the two days we spent in her house were the perfect start to the holiday.

A very comfortable place and a perfect location to discover Pondichery and Auroville. Vijaya and Jean-Marie are eager to share their deep knowledge and love of the area, this helped us very much in making a good survey within the two days we spent there. We definetely will come again and stay there.
