meet AGATHE & La vie en rose

Agathe spent 25 years in India, living across the continent from New Delhi - Goa and Pondicherry. During these years, she works in several design fields, from interior to fashion.

Agathe last stop was in Pondicherry-Auroville in South India, where she and her family built a contemporary Eco-sustainable home, the home of our retreat.

The property design is bespoke – focused on enhancing well-being and well sensing, from carefully choosing the quality of each raw material to the electrical low magnetic design plan. 

Consequently, when you enter La Vie en Rose, your breathing takes a new proportion, and you will feel the invitation to land more deeply. 
During her travels for her design endeavours, Agathe has gathered a talent to mingle within the Indian culture, an orientation to a curiosity that she will share with us.

Finally, her deep connection with this region and its people will allow us to shortcut and filter our one week of discoveries so that each experience is deeply held and unique.

The Painting studio of Agathe’s husband will be at our disposal.  
The onsite team are all long-term family employees, some of which working with her for more than 22 years.
Agathe is welcoming us home.
