Hotel du Parc~ A heritage villa

Hotel du Parc ~ A heritage villa, is where we spent our Christmas Eve in Pondicherry.
Built in the 17th century Heritage Villa Selvom, which has served as the residence to many French governors now is Hotel du Parc.
Beautiful pale yellow and pastel turquoise has been used to bring in the feel of Provence, South France.
Loved the blend of colonial style and contemporary look in the villa...
The dining area with the view of the huge Mango tree that forms a canopy outside in the courtyard...
The deck in the night...
Elegant rooms with antique furniture...Silk drapes and porcelain lamps add a touch of elegance...

The best part about this lovely villa is that it is located at walking distance from the Aurobindo Ashram!

P.S. All the images are from Hotel du Parc's website, my battery died just on the eve of Christmas:-(

This is so much like La dupleix- is it the same property renovated and re christened?

Arch at Rang said...

Thanks all:-)

artnavy~ :-) No it is not the same property.

Le Dupleix is another lovely property.

I guess all are restored French Villas:-)
