Livin' la villa luxe at this perfectly posh pad in Pondicherry.
The devil is surely in the details at this special space. White walls, teak wood, glass and metal of the new extension combine with ancient materials and techniques like centuries-year-old bricks, lime plaster, colour cement flooring, and hand made tiles from the villages of Tamil Nadu as well as local granite. Mixed textures, tradition and care make this prime for a total event takeover.

Venue Setting

LA VILLA is located in the heart of the old quarter of Pondicherry called ‘the white town’, at walking distance from the main attractions. Respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture, inspired by its Pondicherien past, the original walls of the ground floor converse with the immaculate white walls, teak wood, and glass and metal of the new extension. A second birth has been given to ancient materials and techniques like centuries-year-old bricks, lime plaster, colour cement flooring, and hand made tiles from the villages of Tamil Nadu as well as local granite. Old wood from levelled houses has been reused to create elegant contemporary furniture and local handicrafts are combined with the most luxurious and sophisticated western design. Avoiding the false interpretation of the city’s heritage and the mistakes of the modern developed world, the local environment has been treated as an ally, not as an enemy. This challenge has been enthusiastically taken up by French architects Tina Trigala and Yves Lesprit to create a unique hotel in south India with a phantasmagorical and timeless atmosphere, so old, so modern, so fresh, so rare.

Design:
About a hundred miles south of Chennai, Pondicherry is a seaside enclave of French-colonial architecture and beachside boulevards. And La Villa—Pondy’s most stylish new hotel—ought to help put it on the map. The six-room boutique is housed in a 19th-century former residence in the cobblestoned old quarter, and is run by an enthusiastic general manager who will happily check guests in from comfortable sofas on the front veranda. Designed by Tina Trigala and Yves Lesprit, each of the individually decorated rooms evokes Franco-Tamil heritage, with reclaimed wood and antique cane-woven chairs. On the more unbearable humid days, take a dip in the rooftop pool, shaded by a century-old mango tree - TRAVEL AND LEISURE
