Four Hot Winter Getaway Ideas

You haven’t planned any exotic holidays for the season and are still looking for a winter getaway? If you need to escape your cubicle, and are looking for something domestic, fly off to these locales for at least a good 4-5 night stay.

Pondicherry- the French Quarters

It’s an unlikely destination, a pleasant surprise for your spouse, children or friends. If you are staying in Chennai, Pondicherry is just a drive of few hours. Go here to relax, let yourself loose and when you wake up; get ready to smell the fresh aroma of brewed coffee or lip smacking bakery goods. The must visit places are Hidesign café or café Goubert Avenue which is placed right on the beach. There are a number of options including both hotels and home-stays. We suggest you pick something in the French quarters. We also recently discovered Mango Hill Hotel, with it’s proximity to Auroville could serve as a good options as well, depending on your itinerary.
