Guest AccessGuests have access to the courtyard garden, free wifi and breakfast Interaction with GuestsThe villa is in Galle Fort, whenever I visit the property I make a point to meet the guests to ensure they are comfortable and happy with their accommodation. The NeighborhoodGalle Dutch Fort was originally built by the Portuguese way back in 1541, was later strengthened by the Dutch in the year 1640. The Fort served as an incarceration camp by the Portuguese to imprison the very Sinhalese who were then absorbed in restoring the Fort to its present image by the Dutch. Galle Fort embedded with colour, texture and sensation, represents the spirit of medieval European architecture and personifies the immensity of the Dutch influence over Sri Lankan soil. Over the years the Fort has steadily emerged not only as a tourist attraction but also as a place to unwind with its galore of cafes, shops, book stores, jewellery stores, villas and a historical museum. With UNESCO declaring it as a World Heritage Site, all measures are taken to preserve its Dutch architectural embodiment, with a few apparent differences to what it was 400 years ago. Getting AroundGalle Fort can be accessed by walking or by tuk. There are many little cafes and places of interest and the walking around is recommended. If you wish to visit Galle town, Unawatuna etc, then you have to take a tuk which can be arranged for you by the staff at the Villa
