Welcome to No 20

Villa No.20 has been beautifully restored to offer luxuriously spacious living in a peaceful setting, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the famous historic Galle Fort. There are several places to sit and relax, such as the elegant library, or the verandah overlooking the exotic garden, or the loggia, situated at the far end of the garden. Alternatively, there is the Games Room, complete with a snooker table and a plasma TV screen for those requiring some extra entertainment.

There are four bedrooms; one in the main house, two in the annex, and one in the former stables. All are en-suite with air-conditioning. All the bedrooms in the main house and one of the bedrooms in the annex have king sized beds, and a second room in the annex has twin beds, which can also be put together to make a double bed. The bedroom in the renovated former stables has a queen-sized bed. All rooms are fitted with hair dryers and wall safes, and wifi is available throughout the house.

This refreshingly green oasis is a wonderful place to simply sit and relax, and belies the fact that the villa is in fact in the very centre of Galle Fort.

Below is a list of interesting things to do in and around the Southern Coast. When booking your villa, we can assist you with further details on any of the things that particularly interest you.
