Built in the 1750s by a Dutch merchant, 20 Middle Street is one of the largest villas in the Galle Fort, with 5 elegant rooms, lush courtyard gardens, and a swimming pool.
The four air-conditioned bedrooms are large with ensuite bathrooms, high ceilings, original teak doors, and cool terrazzo floors. The villa is cool, airy and stylish. A large part of its beauty is in the spaces which unfold as you enter – the original merchant’s house, with two bedrooms upstairs, looks out on one side to a landscaped courtyard garden shaded by a majestic old mango tree. This links to the annexe at the centre of the property – which has two interconnecting bedrooms upstairs while the downstairs loggia is the ideal spot to sit and read, have a siesta or a yoga class. The garden extends the other side of the annexe, where there is a pool and terrace with sun loungers. The choice of peaceful spots to relax in is one of the highlights of the property.
Rates are inclusive of breakfast and taxes for 8 guests.
