La Vie en Rose

Puducherry, India
A French Home in the Heart of Puducherry

La Vie en Rose is a family home, situated in the heart of Puducherry's old French quarters, within walking distance of the seafront, cafes, restaurants and boutiques, as well as Nôtre Dame des Anges and the ashram of Sri Aurobindo.

Owned by French artist and designer, Agathe Lazaro, it was once the winter base for her nomadic parents, and today it's a resting place for their arts and treasures. The house is filled with family memories and objects gathered on their many travels. As Agathe tells us, her homes "do not look like guesthouses. Instead, I have chosen to respect their souls and let their charms have a chance to imprint your stay with beauty. Our family memories linger, but they are yours to make anew."

For guests and especially design lovers, this is a quiet paradise to withdraw into, and a unique opportunity to experience the French flavor of the city.

This vacation home rental in Puducherry is a bespoke designer home full of character, history and artistic details. To see the owner's other home in France, Le Mas Mejean, click here. Read a conversation with the owner in our Journal here.

La Vie en Rose has living and dining rooms and a courtyard on the ground floor, with a bathroom, toilet and sink. You will need to climb a large green, spiral staircase to access the three large bedrooms on the first floor. 

The Pink room is the perfect family room, with its romantic balcony overlooking the courtyard and swinging jasmine. It has a double bed plus a single cot for one child. It opens onto Evêché street and the courtyard.

The Green bedroom has a more secluded charm. Invested with antique furniture, it feels as if it is suspended in time. It has a double bed and a small bathroom, and opens onto Evêché street and the long corridor.

The Mauve room is a tiny bit smaller but opens up onto the veranda and overlooks the courtyard through a veil of bougainvillea. Its large marble bathroom is a mini palace of multicolored glass.

This vacation home rental in Pondicherry is for rent in its entirety, making it perfect for a family or group of friends.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air conditioning, parking. Every morning, the house and bedrooms are cleaned. The bed sheets are changed once a week for longer stays, and towels on request.

A lovely French breakfast (with croissants, bread, freshly pressed juices, local fruit salad, honey, jam, coffee, and tea) is served daily. Tea and coffee are provided. If you require more groceries, there is a small, delightful shop across the street.

Please note, if you have difficulty climbing stairs, you may find the steep spiral staircase challenging. The Pink bedroom has an open-plan bathroom, and the other bedrooms have separated bathrooms without partitions. There are fragile objects in the home, and the owners ask that guests treat them carefully.

Special meals can be prepared at the house, from western dinners to traditional local cuisine. Please inquire for details.

 

AROUND

The region of Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry, and known affectionately as Pondy) was ruled by the French until 1954, and its colonial past and aesthetic are still very visible in its capital city.

The house is located close to the famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram, which attracts large numbers of spiritual travelers, and there is another location in Auroville. Streets are quiet and clean, and lined with colonial-style townhouses and bougainvillea. There are eclectic shops and plenty of opportunities for yoga and meditation.

The owners recommend visits to Chettinad, Chennai, Mahabalipurram, Gingee Fort, Tiruvanamallai, and Tranquebar.
