4-bedroom Villas in Galle, South Coast, Sri Lanka

The historic city of Galle is one of the island’s biggest attractions; as once the most important port on the island, Galle’s natural harbour attracted seafaring traders long before the arrival of the fort-building European colonialists who were to turn it into a flourishing market town. Galle’s new town is a hive of activity where noisy traffic-filled roads overflow with frantic shoppers, and hawkers of luscious fruit, fish and vegetables loudly promote their wares. The newly created promenade beside the sea is a picturesque place to walk and contemplate the oceanic scene as fishermen, yachts and navy boats come and go from the harbour.

In stark contrast to the town of Galle, the sleepy, historic fort offers serenity and calm. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its seventeenth century ramparts, now retired, are filled with an evocative collection of period properties, intimate boutiques, interesting museums and tiny cafes whilst its nostalgic ambiance and cosmopolitan vibe further highlight its charm. The international cricket stadium, located between the old and new towns, is famed for having one of the most picturesque backdrops in the world. There’s a railway station plus are plenty of banks, ATMs, pharmacies, shops, restaurants, money changing facilities and supermarkets in town.
