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.


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!

If you want a clean, quiet and well managed place for a quiet retreat I know of no better place in the Pondicherry area. The owners have high standards and it shows. The place is also pet friendly and our dogs had the time of their lives running around and exploring the property. Part of the property is completely forested with a few trails to explore for short nature walks. At our request they built us a bonfire for our last night. I will be back Tranquille Farm.

We are sure to choose this place for stay, the next time we visit Pondycherry.The location on the shores of the amazing Oustery lake was charming, and the rain and the chirruping of the birds, which were innumerable, added to it's charm and freshness. The night after we checked out,we landed in a little trouble when the travel company cancelled and we were abandoned at midnight in an unfamiliar place,we were relieved to some extend when we called Basbjit and he offered to help so late into the night(however,he did not have to take the trouble). Basabjit is truly a man of taste as obviated by the apartment,it's decors,the premises etc

We( Wife, pet dog and myself) had visited Tranquille during a long weekend. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality shown by Mr Basu and his staff. Even though, Mr. Basu was not in town during our stay, he called us up and informed us about the same in advance, and also sent us the contact details of the Farm Manager, Mr Guruswamy along with the directions to the place. The house had all necessities and we never felt anything amiss. We went there expecting a small house by the lake but we were mistaken. It's a big farm, which extends to acres with a lot of greenery and an amazing view of the. lake. The lake had resided due to poor rainfall but is still quite beautiful none the less. Our dog was happy to run about the endless premises and the friendly staff had been very helpful and.. Mr Kannan, who is a part of the farms staff was always ready to help us and communicate with us in spite of the language barrier. The place is just 30mins from Pondy town, which makes it a short drive to go for sight seeing or food. We ended up staying at Tranquille all the while and visiting the town only for meals. The place is cooler and more windy as compared to rest of Pondy and and a good escape from the hustle and pollution of the city life.

It was a wonderful stay. It's just a 30 minute drive from the city but completely away from the noise and pollution. This place is recommended for people who seek for complete relaxation and a calm atmosphere. We were three of us - my parents and myself. We were welcomed with snacks and drinks. My parents celebrated their wedding anniversary during the stay. Even though uncle Basabjit was not in town he called and conveyed his wishes to them in the morning. Meanwhile aunt Pallavi sent surprise gifts and sweets. The owners and the farm crew are always ready to help. We had fresh coconut water the next morning. If you bring your own vehicle the drive from the entrance gate to the house will be beautiful. It will feel like you're driving through a forest. We explored every bit of the farm. The entire farm is very well maintained. Its clean and safe. The serene atmosphere around the house will make you stay outdoors most of the time. Would definitely revisit this place soon.

We decided to take a break during the long Easter weekend. Since the family comprises of two four legged members, a beagle and a pug, our choices of destination in a 100 km radius of Chennai is pretty limited. Chanced ùpon the Tranquille Lakeside apartment and studio on Airbnb and decided to try it out. Our experience from the enquiry till the check out was all pleasant and were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the hosts Basabjit and Pallavi. The apartment and the studio are maintained neatly with every amenity thoughtfully selected and placed. Being Hoteliers we have a very critical outlook towards standards and must say that the Tranquille passed every involuntary professional scrutiny with flying colours. Basu was kind enough to join us on one evening that led to some interesting conversation. A nature lover's delight, the sprawling grounds, the lake itself, the birds, grazing cattle amongst the serenity that we so longed, this place was exactly what was in our minds for a holiday. Strongly recommend if you want to spend some quality time with nature amidst all lively necessities !! And needless to say , we are in a hurry to get back soon :)

Dear Sudip, thank you so much for being so appreciative of our efforts at Tranquille Lakeshore Farm. Especially coming from both of you as hoteliers, it means a lot and encourages us to do better. We hope to be in touch and meet at Tranquille more frequently. Our best wishes to your son, Rishab, as well as your friends. We are very happy that Chelsea and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) accepted us as friends.

Basu's place Tranquil on the banks of the Osudu (Ousteri) Lake is exceptionally beautiful. The house is comfortable, airy and allows a lot of natural light. The grounds are perfect for walks, bird photography, lounging by the lake and for a quiet spot underneath a tree with a book and a snack in hand. The staff on the property are attentive and helpful. I would recommend this space for anybody looking for a weekend break from Chennai or Bangalore. I would also recommend it for bird enthusiasts, photographers, ecologists, writers and artists. A 20-minute drive from Pondicherry, Tranquil offers the luxury of exploring the city during the day and then retiring to the quiet and solitude of the Osudu Lake. Waking up here, to the sound of birds and the early morning light over the lake, is a pleasure.
