While at Galle Fort 39, you are at the most beautiful location nestled inside the historical Fort that was built over 400 years ago. The Dutch-era architecture is still very much prevalent in Galle, which is another lively location with plenty of shops, local restaurants, and things just waiting to be discovered. Head to the beach to catch the sunset and stilt fishermen going about their daily activities.
We stayed 5 nights in Galle Fort and enjoyed every minute. The house has an open concept living/dining room that looks on to the enclosed back garden. All of the bedrooms were air conditioned and quiet, perfect for sleeping. It was great to stay so centrally in the fort and have easy access to so many restaurants and sights. We were able to go back and forth as we wished, for rest breaks from the heat outside. We travelled with 2 children, an infant and a 4 year old and were battling jet lag. The staff were very good with the kids and we could get out to dinner on our own sometimes if the kids needed to sleep. And yes...the Wifi works well! You get some power cuts and other interruptions but it was good enough that we could even do some work as needed.
What a fantastic villa! A beautiful villa in a beautiful location
The location is fabulous. You can walk to the bars, restaurants, beach and ramparts. The staff is obliging and un-intrusive. The place is tastefully put together to offer the visitor modern comforts with a touch of Sri Lankan charm.
Wonderful villa in Lighthouse street - beautifully appointed for relaxation with friends or family. Totally wonderful location to explore Galle's restaurants and shops and opposite the best lounge bar in town. Loved it and will definitely go there again!
