Overview
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Tangalle, Southern Province
The Saffron House occupies one of the finest locations on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Set in nearly three acres of tropical walled gardens, this fully staffed villa provides stunning panoramic ocean views, sea breezes, simple luxury and complete privacy.

The entrance gates lie up a quiet lane, 30 metres above sea level, the highest point on this small headland and sandwiched between two of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful beaches, each just a few minutes’ walk away. Hiriketiya Bay, a perfect tiny horseshoe, has a good surf break and a cool, laid-back scene.

The villa lies about 15 kms from the southern tip of the island and about 45 minutes from Galle. It has four double bedrooms, with extra beds available for children. All bedrooms have mosquito nets, fans and air conditioning, with en-suite bathrooms. The house has broadband Wi-Fi and rec...

About the neighbourhood
Saffron House, 1 kms from the town of Dikwella, is about 15 kms from Dondra at the southern tip of Sri Lanka. Once around the southern tip from the Galle coast, the main road is mostly set well back from a complex coastline, with small sandy bays, jagged rocky seafront and quiet, bird-filled lagoons. The historic town of Galle with its spectacular Dutch fort will be about 45 minutes away when the final section of the Southern Highway opens in March 2014. The Dondra to Tangalle south-east stretch of coast is well known for its beauty and is blessed with many kilometres of stunning, empty beaches and not far inland, serene paddy fields, cinnamon estates and wooded hills bursting with wildlife.
