About this listing
3 Bedroom Dutch of villa
Galle Fort Villa is a gorgeous colonial villa that harkens back to days gone by. The three bedroom boutique property has been recently updated, renovated and lies within the walls of historic Galle Fort.
Besides being a first class accommodation, the villa’s location makes an excellent platform to explore Southern Sri Lanka with its beautiful beaches, sporting venues, exciting safari parks and even the Fort itself.
This elegant three-bedroom terraced villa was built in the 17th century and reflects the history charm and character of its colonial past. While many of the records were lost, Galle Fort Villa was said to be the home of a wealthy merchant of the Dutch East India Company.
Today, the villa has been meticulously renovated while preserving much of its original structure and comfortable appeal. The home has lost none of its romantic, colonial feeling and takes guests back to a time when life took on a slower, more considered pace. Upon entering the home, guests will be welcomed by the vault like, 30-foot high ceilings with arches and columns. The villa’s lush, tropical courtyard was maintained to offer a private oasis in the middle of the city.
Galle Fort Villa is spacious, airy and filled with natural light from its large floor to ceiling windows and skylights. Its bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully appointed with modern amenities. There is also a lofted TV/family room.
Galle Fort Villa comfortably accommodates a party of 6.
The villa is supplied with two helpful local staff that will be responsible for housekeeping and will go out of their way to make the villa’s guests stay comfortable and memorable. They will, on request, prepare and serve continental breakfast and mouth watering Sri Lankan cuisine. Extra charges apply for all meals except continental breakfast.
Staying here on Galle Fort Villa you will be part of a world where time has seemingly stood still. Galle Fort Villa’s living and dining spaces located on the ground floor boast a 30-foot exposed timber ceiling, large windows and antique Dutch period furniture. Meals are served at the 8-10 seat dining table or out on the terrace. Multiple ceiling fans cool the space.

This was our second time in Galle and we loved staying at No.39 – what a beautiful villa. My son and I had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back. Nuwan and Gayan took care of our delicious breakfasts and a nice first dinner as well as any other help we needed. Mark the property manager is amazing and always made sure that everything was just perfect. Thank you everyone.

Imalka’s smile every time we came home, 5. Good coffee, 6. Nice decor-great birds of paradise feature, 7. Infused water in the bedrooms, 8. Anticipation of our needs (ice, fans, beach towels), 9. Sparkling clean 10. Wood apple juice introduction.

What a little paradise in the middle of a bustling city!!! We loved our stay here. Wasn’t easy with two small kids making sure that they don’t damage all the precious property but with good help from Imalka and Anjali we managed it very well. We loved the garden space and the kids spotted little squirrels up on the wall and an iguana came for a visit one morning. Beautiful fresh flowers! We were amazed how quiet is this villa, what a good sleep we had. Breakfast was nice and the guys were so attentive to our needs and favours. We would love to come back one day! Thank you.
