Maison Gascon

Your home stay in Pondichery,
Vijaya et Jean Marie, receive you in a warm ambiance


Vos hôtesMAISON GASCON became a reality due to our strong desire to meet people & the challenge of undertaking a project in India. Pondicherry with its major advantages of being small in size nevertheless cosmopolitan, its warm climate & the constant sea breeze, the people, the beaches and our proximity to Auroville offered us a nice platform to put our bags down & start a new adventure. Vijaya, a native of Bangalore in South India worked with people from across the borders thanks to her fluency in different languages. Her knowledge of the country, its “dos & don’ts” were essential in the beginning of this new venture. Jean Marie, a native of ARDECHE in the south of France comes from a wine making family. Highly talented with his hands, he conceived & followed the different stages of our house construction with the help of about 40 workers comprising masons, carpenters, sculptors, painters….An enriching experience in terms of human relations & creativity!!!! Our daughters lived this day to day adventure & their presence was a major motivating factor. Together we open our doors for you to come in & share our experience……
