Take a look inside The Well House

The embodiment of a true Sri Lankan home, The Well House is the product of a designer’s imagination with pristine gardens teeming with tropical flora, old-world interiors with a vintage flair, and plush seating found in every nook and cranny of the house. A four-bedroom vacation rental just a five-minute drive from Galle Fort and a three-minutes’ walk from the beach, the bungalow piques your holiday mood like no other. You will find that the bungalow is a celebration of the past and present, nature and modern living infused as one functioning body.

Since the house is located so close to Galle Fort, the first order of things is to take a trip to witness the age-old structure in all its glory. It dates back 400 years and stands as majestically as it did then. When you’re not headed to the beach, head into town to visit some of the shops, eateries, and boutiques for shopping.

This Villa is a dream, beautiful greenery and interiors, we even got to see a family of monkeys jumping around in the forest behind (a safe distance away). The Villa provides meals on request, we had breakfast the two days we spent there, which was delicious. One of the best holidays we have been on, thanks to Pradeep, Mangal and Chandran. They also put us in touch with Koshi a tuk tuk driver who showed us around Galle and areas to the south where there are turtle sanctuaries and spice gardens. I highly recommend this.
