The One With The Sri Lankan Chef

Right in the heart of Galle, stands 20 Middle Street, easily the grand dame of private residences within the walls of Galle Fort. This beautifully preserved colonial home from the 1750s, comes with a wonderful team, including a Sri Lankan chef.

The One In The Heart Of The Action

Tatler has referred to 41 Lighthouse Street as ‘Sri Lanka’s sexiest villa’. Location-wise, the house is right in the heart of all the action and the beach is just a short tuk-tuk ride away. Spend the day exploring Galle’s many charming antique shops and the evening enjoying a tipple or two from the villa’s wine cellar.
