LA VILLA is located in the heart of the old quarter of Pondicherry called ‘the white town’, at walking distance from the main attractions. Create a unique hotel in the old town of the former French colony of Pondicherry, refined yet surprising - that was the challenge given to the architects of Villa Shanti, Tina Trigala and Yves Lesprit. Respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture, this 19th century manor provides all the facilities of a boutique hotel, featuring six suites, a swimming pool and a restaurant. Inspired by its Pondicherien past, the original walls of the old ground floor manor converse with the white immaculate walls, the teak wood, the glass and the metal of the new extension.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.
