Picturesque Airbnbs in Puducherry 


The quaint little French town of India, Puducherry makes you wonder if you’re in India or France. The colonial structures, architectures, beaches and the relaxed vibe of the place, there are many reasons to visit pondy. If you are someone for who travelling is always on mind but the pocket tells you to take it easy, ditch the boutiques and resorts for a while and stay in Airbnbs. Not only does a great Airbnb location feels more like home, but many hosts give you that familiar comfort and the way they have developed the unique spaces with creative and stunning decors, they are surely posing as a rival to boutique hotel accommodations. Here are my favourite unique picturesque Airbnbs worth visiting while on your next trip to Puducherry.
