Maison Perumal Courtyard

Maison Perumal

A charming French-inspired boutique hotel in Southern India

Culture and art decorate the walls

Unwind in unpretentious boutique surroundings at an 18th Century family mansion centered around a leafy courtyard

As you might see from its name, Maison Perumal is a hotel which encapsulates the blend of French and South Indian culture which really defines Pondicherry. This is a 18th century family mansion which has been renovated into a charming boutique hotel, reflecting the colonial ambience of this seaside town.

The hotel features a lot of local artists in a rotating gallery space. It’s a relaxed and informal place where you can go shopping with the chef, and learn some haggling skills as well as traditional Indian cooking. Maison Perumal is situated in the Tamil quarter of Pondicherry and is a good base for exploring the town and nearby Auroville.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
