About the neighborhood
In the heart of the Galle fort, the villa is at walking distance from the best restaurants and shops in the south of Sri Lanka, museums and much more. A lovely little beach is just a few steps away from the villa, down the ramparts in front of the house, bigger and surf beaches are outside of the fort a from just few minutes up to 35 minutes away by van or car.
Getting around
Most of what should be seen in the fort can be done walking around or grabbing a three-wheeler, but should you decide to travel further and venture out, or even take a day-trip the staff can arrange for a 6 to 8-seater air-conditioned van to take you around. Simply ask.
