Surrounded by bougainvillea and makeshift motorbikes, why not get on a bicycle to see the sights of Pondicherry? It is easy enough to find your way around: the city is divided into squares. Just behind the seafront and its long promenade, you will find the White City: dignified and French, with a touch of history. Further on, the so-called ‘black’ city, or the Tamil area, brims with the smell of spices, noise and typical Indian tumult. Explore around here and discover the Maison Pérumal, a unique example of Tamil architecture with its stained glass, verandas, colonnades and a spectacular central skylight framed with greenery, which brings coolness to the house on hot days. Cotton curtains and simple furnishings, your stay here will be timeless, keeping in step with the ecological codes of CGH Earth.
