We have found for De 19 Villa by chance while seeking for a place to stay. No signs and no information in the guide books. A bit like a "boutique hotel" in some secret spot.
Look for the number 19, left door of Seegreen.
This guest house is just the perfect place to stay in Galle: Ideal location, open ocean view, nice bedroom, very clean, quite, extra little bed for our 4 years old boy....
Mattress and linen were amazing, the best we had experienced in Sri Lanka after a month of travel.Like a for stars hotel. Same for the bathroom: bath tube + shower + hot water + no bugs + goof towels....
Hosts are very nice too. They gave us a lot of information about Galle, the places to visit, the shops and the best restaurants. At the end of our stay, they arrange a confortable taxi to go to the airport at a fairly good price.
We really enjoyed watching the sun set from our terrace while local people were playing crickets. What a fantastic experience and so quiet !
If you've got the chance to go there, ask to see the huge fish in the little aquarium close to the kitchen. Our boys loved him.
Fort de Villa provides a hotel comfort for the price of a guest house. Great value for money. No breakfast included in the price but the restaurant next door can arrange that on their outside terrace with view on the ocean.
Congratulation to the owner Theekshana. Don't change, you are heading the good way.
