Galle Fort Villa

Start from 400 US$ /night3 Bedrooms
Located in the heart of the historic Galle Fort, the main section of 79 Leyn Bann Street tells the tale of its 18th century Dutch colonial past, while its extension bears witness to the British reign at the end of the 19th century. Like most of the town houses in the fort, it has been recently renovated and equipped with all the essential comforts of modern living, while still remaining true to its historic past. This private villa is furnished with an invaluable collection of antiques gathered by its British owner, and also boasts an array of objects she brought back from various trips around the world, including some beautiful Indonesian fabrics. Of particular note in the house are the antique stained-glass windows arranged in arches above the doorways and windows that let in a diffuse, multi-coloured light.

Combining original architectural features of the 18th century with all the comforts of a 21st century home, this luxury rental will delight lovers of antiquity who will be transported back in time. 70 Leyn Bann Street is a unique and traditional home. It has featured in many decorating magazines and often serves as a backdrop for fashion shoots.
To top it all, its strategic location provides easy access to the fort’s many restaurants, cafes, shops and numerous attractions.

The villa has two entrances: the garden entrance that leads to the ramparts and its small beach, and the main entrance that opens out onto the narrow streets of Galle Fort.
Having walked through the arched entrance so typical of fort buildings, you enter the house through a hallway flanked by bookshelves that leads to a bedroom on the right and its private ensuite across the way. You then pass through the large living/dining room area to reach an elongated narrow courtyard decorated with a central pool. This leads onto a small kitchen and the children’s bedroom/study with its set of bunk beds and a bathroom that gives access to the first floor. The first floor houses the bright and spacious master bedroom, which opens onto the rooftop terrace and its stunning views over the Indian Ocean. All the rooms are air-conditioned.
At the back of the villa is a small private garden where you can enjoy your meals around the large family table on the veranda.

Guests have a whole array of modern amenities and Hi-Tech equipment at their disposal (cable TV, WI-FI, DVD player, iPod dock) as well as a well-stocked library, DVDs and games.

Kanthi, the trusted daily housekeeper, takes care of the cleaning and can help out in the kitchen. If you require more house staff, simply call the management company who can also arrange for a chef to cook for you at the villa for a very moderate daily fee.

Your vacation with Sri Lanka Je T’aime and all the facilities offered by this rental will undoubtedly make for the holiday of a lifetime!
