This opulent villa is one of the oldest Dutch colonial mansions in Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Brimming with an exquisite personal collection of art and antiques, this grand property – easily the largest and most spacious villa in the fort – offers five generous ensuite bedrooms, extensive living and dining areas and a shady tropical garden with plunge pool.
Dating back to the 18th century, the atmospheric main building is home to two bedrooms, a library, a double height dining area, a kitchen and a TV room with full size snooker table. A deep convivial veranda generously furnished with day bed sofas and a more casual dining area transitions onto a lawn shaded by an ancient mango tree. Beyond is an annexe with two interconnecting first floor bedrooms – a double and a twin – and a pool house with a secluded double bedroom.
This staffed villa has a fantastic location in Galle Fort within walking distance to landmarks, restaurants, shops and Galle’s international test cricket ground.
