About the property:

Pondicherry is a slim slice of France, deposited neatly besides the azure waters of the Coromandel Coast. The Tamil Quarter of Puducherry is a place where cultures not only met, but melted, and gave birth to a way of life found nowhere else in the world. Maison Perumal, a heritage hotel in Pondicherry, is a tribute to that way of life. A sepia serigraph of another time - dusted off perhaps, but not retouched.Maison Perumal is a tasteful blend of old-world Tamil and French architectural styles. Verandahs and sit-out areas speak of the Tamil heritage while the arched windows and stylized colonnades reflect their French colonial ancestry.The red oxide floors and simple wood frame beds feel like they've been transported from a half century ago. Tamil Nadu's conservative culture had a less-is-more philosophy that's reflected in Maison Perumal's minimalistic interiors, adorned with a spare style, yet much attention to detail.Maison Perumal's dining area is a cool, airy haven where you can relax and find a moment of quiet whenever you like. The walls are a rotated gallery space with a selection of canvases, part of Maison Perumal's initiative to promote work by local artists.If you walk around the premises, especially on festival days, you'll notice charming, colourful designs, made with spices, rice grains, food colour and almost anything that captures a housewives' imagination. They're called Kolam, or Rangoli, and are a feature of every Tamil home. At Maison Perumal too, they keep traditions like this alive, and often, the girls on the staff will create a design on the threshold of the house.Besides, a rickshaw ride through the winding lanes of old Pondicherry can be a fascinating way of experiencing the city.
