Going to and staying at Helga's Folly is magic!!
The food is terrific, rice served in banana leaves, best coconut soup we ever had, homemade icecream and pudding cake... sooo great!
we loved our room! all the wall-paintings, every room is unique, and if you have the chance you can pick your favourite one!
the pool is surrounded by a beautiful garden, just dip into the magic of the place! it is really worth to stay there over night! just staying there for dinner is already so great but staying and living there for a day or more is mind-blowing!!
and serious, if you have the chance to meet helga - she is one of the nicest, greatest, loving persons we ever met!
and if you want to know something about kandy from. the 1920's on it is the place where you have to go. The grandmother of Helga, agnes nell, was a leading figure in the suffragette movement, her grandfather, george e. de silva, had an importnat part in the struggles for independence, her aunt, minnette de silva, was one of the first women in asia who got trained as an architect.... and so on and on...
allow the place to enter your life and you'll have a really magical expierence for sure!
