  • No. 39 Galle Fort-No. 39 Galle Fort - Formal dining table

Located within the walls of a 17th century UNESCO World Heritage Site, three-bedroomed No. 39 Galle Fort offers space, privacy and plenty of old world charm. Ideal for families and groups of friends looking for a warm and welcoming home-from-home right in the heart of this historic ‘living citadel’, trendy Galle Fort’s iconic landmarks are mere footsteps away.

Stately yet cosy, nostalgic yet current, this immaculate property elegantly blends the charm of the past with 21st century comforts. The breezy terraced house is hugely spacious; the timber vaulted ceiling of the living room alone towers almost 10 metres above the burgundy-hued daybeds and the three-metre-long dining table. A friendly staff team – including a cook – attends to guests, ensuring they make the most of their comfortable surroundings.

No.39 Galle Fort dates back to the 17th century but was extensively renovated in 2008. The house is arranged across two floors encompassed by a walled courtyard garden sprouting tropical plants and boasting an alfresco dining area. Many features, such as the wide archway in the living room, the high vaulted ceilings and the heady mix of antique and custom-made furniture, hark back to the Dutch colonial era. The sumptuously dressed beds and cushioned daybeds, along with the well-equipped kitchen, mezzanine TV lounge and iPod dock delightfully complement this heritage home.

Tucked along Lighthouse Street in Galle Fort, on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast, the house provides easy access to the many iconic attractions of this historic locale. Although your cook will prepare daily breakfasts and other light meals on request, the fort is also dotted with a growing number of restaurants, cafés, bars and ice cream parlours to explore and sample. And within a fifteen-minute drive of the fort are palm-fringed beaches, idyllic lakes and fascinating temples.

The fort is a world heritage site and dates back over 400 years; a walk along its narrow cobbled streets reveals the fascinating hybrid architecture of three colonial eras – fretwork-fringed and pillarred Dutch abodes, British-era monuments, ochre-hued spice warehouses and interesting museums showcasing the fort’s rich history. There are many restaurants and cafes, as well as boutiques selling handicrafts, delicate lacework, glittering gems and other evocative souvenirs. Within 15 kilometres are a selection of mesmerising beaches, tranquil lagoons and historic temples.
