Galle Villa

Hempel House
Located just ten minutes from Galle Fort and 15 minutes from the beaches of Unawatuna and Jungle beach, this meticulously restored villa from the colonial period, is a little haven of peace set within a beautiful and lush tropical garden. The house is built around a courtyard with a central pond that is home to turtles and tropical fish. Situated in the heart of a small village, this rental offers you the luxury of sharing in the day-to-day life of the locals. You will be totally immersed in rural Sri Lanka living!

When you enter Hempel, you are immediately transported back to the last century. The woodwork within the house is particularly striking with its carved doors, balustrades, four-poster beds, oversized sofas, wooden floors and library.

Hemple House contains four bedrooms. There is a large master bedroom on the first floor with a king size four-poster bed and an ensuite semi-outdoor bathroom. The bed is draped in mosquito netting which gives it a very romantic feel. There are two further double rooms furnished with queen size four-poster beds and their own ensuite. They are all air-conditioned. The fourth room contains a single bed large enough to hold two children. It is cooled by a ceiling fan.

Guests can enjoy the mild Sri Lankan climate on the veranda where they can dine around the large family table. The small cosy lounge is the ideal place in which to sit back and relax. Large comfy sofas beckon you to stretch out and unwind in this elegant atmosphere.

The outdoor area is also very charming. At first, you will be dazzled by the huge 50 ft pool surrounded by well-tended tropical flora. And the Ambalama, located at the end of the garden, is just perfect for whiling away long lazy days between swims.

To ensure your well-being and comfort, the house staff looks after the property on a daily basis with total ease and discretion. They will ensure you have everything you need and that nothing interferes with the enjoyment of your stay. Nalani, the cook, can prepare you delicious Sri Lankan breakfasts based on sambal, chutney and curry as well as more traditional dishes of bacon and eggs, freshly laid by Hempel House’s resident chickens. A gardener, housekeeper and security officer make up the rest of the team.

"Un endroit authentique"

Ma femme, nos deux enfants et moi-même avons passé 4 jours fantastiques à Hempel House où tout était parfait. Nous nous somme senti comme à la maison. A commencer par l’accueil très chaleureux d’Emma, la propriétaire qui était là le jour de notre arrivée pour nous expliquer le fonctionnement de la maison. Nous avons passé des moments absolument fabuleux ! A commencer par les repas que nous a préparé Nalini tout au long de notre séjour. Rien n’était trop beau et elle nous a choyé tout au long de notre séjour. Les enfants on passé des moemnts merveilleux à jouer avec Minky le chat et les deux chiens Elfie et Dido. Nous avons passé de long moments paisible au bord de la piscine à profiter de la tranquilité des lieu et du jardin magnifique. Nous avons adoré la grande chambre à l’étage, tellement romantique avec son grand lit à baldaquin enveloppé dans une immense moustiquaire. La vue sur le jardin intérieur était éblouissante. La maison est vraiment bien situé puisque elle offre le luxe d’être à 15 minutes à peine du fort de Galle et des plages dont nous avons aussi beaucoup profité. Hempel House est certainement l’endroit que nous avons le plus aimé lors de notre séjour au Sri Lanka. Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit ! Annick, Marc, Léo et Marie ...
