Our home

Tucked away in the countryside north east of Galle is a lovely, old house with beautiful terraced gardens, mature trees and wonderful bird life. Originally built as the manor house of a rice estate, it has been attractively renovated to include a large swimming pool and spacious accommodation. The gardens are filled with mature fruit trees, abundant flowering gingers, indigenous plants and at night fireflies dance through the terraces.

Cool polished floors, stylish interiors and colonial furniture reflect the beauty of the island's heritage.

The house is very peaceful and has lovely birdlife. It is very well placed to visit the southern national parks. The Dutch fort of Galle is 6kms as are the various nice beaches of this part of the coast.

The bedrooms have large, colonial beds all with mosquito netting and the house comes with resident staff.
