Our holiday home is an original Dutch house built in 1789 which we purchased in 2008. The design and renovation was completed in 2012 and has already been featured in a number of publications.
This is a family holiday home with 4 bedrooms (3 double rooms and 1 kids room with double bunk beds), each with wifi and air conditioning and bathroom. It is equipped with the essentials for families - high chairs, cot, changing mats, sterilizer, as well as paddling pool, toys, boogie boards and bikes.
As well as being a family home, it is also a beautifully designed villa with striking interiors as well as spacious garden, complete with living walls.
The house comes with 3 full time staff (1 chef and 2 house boys) to look after you.
The house comes with membership to a nearby hotel with a gym, tennis court and two large swimming pools beside the sea.
Galle Fort is a UNESCO world heritage site and on the south coast of Sri Lanka, a few hours drive from Colombo, offering something for everyone - shopping, bars, restaurants spas, spectacular beaches, surfing, whale watching, hiking in tropical rain forests, temples and a culinary adventure.
