A tranquil hideaway, Chandolu is ideally located within the Old Dutch Fort in Galle. The villa is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience life in the historic Fort and explore its vibrant streets or to visit many of the nearby palm fronded beaches. The Fort also offers probably the best shopping in Sri Lanka with affordable gems and jewellery being the speciality. The villa has unique views across the Ramparts and overlooks the Indian Ocean.The upstairs terrace is the perfect place to have breakfast, enjoy the magnificent sunsets or just simply to watch the world go by. The large master bedroom (with en suite shower room) on the first floor benefits from both magnificent views and the sea breeze. Downstairs there are two small bedrooms, one double and one twin both with en suite bathrooms. There is a large sitting room with... Read more

This is a fabulous place, and we were gloriously happy here. Whether we were sipping cocktails on the terrace overlooking the ramparts and the sea, or indulging in a fantastic late Sri Lankan omelette for breakfast, or relaxing in the beautiful stylish villa, or venturing into the streets for some sightseeing or shopping, we appreciated that this house really made...

The upstairs bedroom is fantastic with a wonderful terrace facing west for sunsets overlooking the ramparts (apparently the only villa in the fort with this). Everything works well - including a/c, mosquito netting, wifi (routers on both levels). We were actually relieved that the plunge pool was not there, as it would have been a worry with my 1 year...

About the neighbourhood
Galle Fort is much more than a Unesco World Heritage site, it is a vibrant working community. Here you will find a unique mix of cultures, religions and architecture. Wander the streets to soak up the Fort’s history and enjoy browsing in the many shops. You will find gems and jewellery along with clothes, handicrafts and tea. You may chance upon a religious procession or a game of cricket as there is always something going on. Eat at one of the many restaurants or cafes or take a tuk tuk to a nearby sandy beach. Hire a bicycle and wend your way through stunning rice paddies or spend the day deep-sea fishing or whale watching. Of course, you could just lie on the terrace relax and watch the world of the Fort enfold before you.
Getting around
The easiest way to arrive from the airport is to hire a car and a driver but the Fort is also reachable from the airport by bus or train. Once you are staying in the Fort all the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. A tuk tuk can take you to the beach.
