Galle, Galle District, Southern Province
A truly delightful courtyard house in Galle in Sri Lanka with a cool 45ft swimming pool. Close to UNESCO Galle Fort and Unawatuna. Tropical, green and lovely. Delicious breakfast included. Try fresh fruit and buffalo curd, toast and eggs or a delicious Sri Lankan breakfast!
Rooms only available also!

This is a charming example of a period house from the colonial era. It is set around an internal courtyard pond with tropical fish, turtles and a sweet scented frangipani tree at its center.
Tastefully restored by the Hempel Family who have been living there for the last 13 years, it is just 10 mins from Galle Fort and fifteen minutes from Unawatuna and the beaches of Thalpe.
The house is surrounded by a lush tropical garden which is a bird watchers paradise. Monkeys, mongoose, monitor lizards and squirrels dart amongst the trees.
