Ideal for those wanting a relaxing getaway.
About the property:
The villa is situated in a stunningly beautiful location overlooking the Koggala lake, just less than 20mins from Galle, but in total tranquillity, far away from the noise and crowds. Set in 1 acre garden, at the end of the land extending into the lake, it is easily accessible with less than a kilometre to the main Galle road and the beach.
About the space:
The villa is fully staffed and our villa manageress, Indu speaks excellent English and will ensure you have a wonderful time. She is also an exceptional cook and will prepare all your meals and shop for you, if you wish. All dietary requirements and preferences can be catered for. Meals except for Breakfast are not included in the rental price, but the only additional cost is for the ingredients and transport, so you can eat and drink what you like when you like at a fraction of restaurant prices.
Completed in mid 2015, the villa is a mix of traditional charm and modern comforts, laid out to maximise the glorious views across the lake.
About the Listing:
All Four bedrooms have 4 poster superking size beds, air conditioning, overhead fans and a large verandah while Three bedrooms have views of the lake and the garden. The other room have views of the Garden.
All bedrooms have lockable wardrobes and there is a wall safe in the main bedroom.
The garden attracts a variety of colourful birds from kingfishers to peacocks. Monkeys and monitor lizards are regular visitors and a special attraction is the evening fly -past of hundreds of fruit bats, as they circle the lake on their nightly flight to the inland jungle to feed. On a clear night the lack of light pollution makes stargazing a must.
Chill by the lake and call out to the local fishermen for their catch of prawns, fish and crab and have Indu prepare them for you. Walk down the road to the long, sandy beach (around 25 minutes), stopping to chat with the local schoolchildren. If you can tear yourself away from the villa, the World Heritage site Galle fort is about a 20 minute drive away and makes an enjoyable day out. Whale watching, diving & snorkelling, temples, wildlife safaris, beaches, shopping and restaurants are all easily accessible and transport will be arranged on request.
