If you are overworked and tired of the hustle-bustle of city life, this oceanfront cabana in Auroville, Tamil Nadu is the perfect getaway to unwind. La Maison Bleue is an eco-homestay that is inspired by the zero-waste movement and is surrounded by trees all around. The cabana is situated on the oceanfront of Quiet beach and you can also find a surfing spot towards the other end of the beach.

The homestay is located away from the main city with no road connectivity so that the guests can enjoy the sounds of waves and the chirping of birds. What a surreal experience it would be to watch the sunset, seeming like the ball of sunlight sinking into the sparkling blue water, denoting the horizon.
