Why we like it

  • Located in the heart of Galle
  • Colonial and full of sophisticated charm
  • Nearly everything within Galle is only a 10 minute walk from 42 Lighthouse Street
  • With only four rooms, this is a great boutique option, or take the whole villa on an exclusive basis
  • Meals are a delight and the chef is more than happy to talk through the options with you – we love the breakfasts here
