This 2 BHK ground-floor apartment is situated on the banks of the Ossudu Lake, a notified bird sanctuary. The house is set amidst coconut groves and green fields of a large privately-owned farm, Tranquille, around 12 km from Pondicherry town. The apartment has 2 bedrooms with A/C units & an equipped kitchenette and a sitting area. Bedroom 1 has 2 single beds with an attached bathroom with hot water facility; Bedroom 2 has a single bed and an attached toilet. We can provide an extra mattress.

The space
A long private driveway leads you to this 2 BHK ground-floor, #1200 sq. ft. apartment set in the lush grounds of a 10-acre farm. Tranquille is surrounded on three sides by the 7 sq. km (#2000 acre) Ossudu Lake, a protected bird sanctuary, and is formed as a private peninsula. The apartment has a long verandah in front with a stunning view of the lake, which keeps the farm naturally cool throughout the year.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms with A/C units: the bigger bedroom (the beds can sleep 2 people) with an attached bathroom with hot water facility, a smaller bedroom with a single bed and an attached toilet, a well-equipped kitchenette and a sitting area. It is elegantly fitted out in traditional antique furniture. We can provide an additional floor mattress for an extra person.

The farm is a family owned property growing field crops and coconut trees. There is a full-time farm manager and daily cleaning is included. The sheets will be changed once in 3 days.

A little away from the dust and din of the town, privacy and solitude in nature characterise this exclusive getaway. However, mobility is not an issue, for you can hire cycles, two-wheelers or taxis and we can help you do it. A peaceful haven to energise you while you tour all the local attractions!

Wake up to the merry chirping of the birds or have a lazy lie-in; watch the sun rise or set over the beautiful lake; cycle around the place, discovering shady nooks and ideal picnic spots or become an avid bird-watcher; spend a lazy day reading a fascinating novel sitting in the verandah; play with Frisbees with friends or family or a rigorous game of cricket; plant crops or plough the land; enjoy cooking a delicious meal surrounded by nature, or have a special dinner by the campfire, strumming your guitar; or simply do nothing… lie back, star-gaze and dream…

You are free to spend your days as you like! This could be your unique holiday on an idyllic farm!

•Nearest police station: 6 km

Local Attractions:

The closest tourist attraction is the government bird-watching boat trips across the lake. Pondicherry town and the neighbouring area has many heritage places to visit. Stroll around the French quarter and soak in the old-world architecture. Rush around the market-place in the Tamil quarter for an evening full of shopping. The town also has many recreational places for all budgets, such as bars, restaurants with international cuisine and expensive hotels.

We would personally recommend you to visit Sri Aurobindo Ashram at the centre of the town as well as the Auroville township.
