About the villa

Tucked away in a perfectly peaceful location overlooking the vibrant paddy fields of Galle, Elephant House is a dreamy combination of cutting edge design and optimum comfort. Its location is truly atmospheric in the heart of southern Sri Lanka, yet only a short drive to the closest beaches. Passing along the large veranda, the first room in the villa is the stylish sitting room that has a large sofa and armchairs, with retractable shutters that can be fully opened to reveal the wide screen panorama of the surrounding rice paddies and a welcome cooling breeze. Running through the centre of the house is a sleek space, housing the kitchen and indoor dining area. The dining table sits on the paddy side of the house, allowing for atmospheric dining; on the other side is the well-equipped kitchen.  Leading from the sitting room are the two queen bedrooms with outdoors showers; antique finishing touches, such as fans and typewriters add a certain romance. There are two beautiful master suites with four poster king beds. Both rooms are en suite  - one has a bath, while the other has an ambient double outdoor shower.  

Outside, the huge 18m long pool runs perpendicular to the paddy and is perfect for swimming laps. The poolside pavilion is a wonderful open space, great for practising yoga and enjoying a bbq prepared by the in-villa chef. The chef specialises in excellent Sri Lankan cuisine and you conveniently pay per meal. Just 15km from the villa is UNESCO world heritage site Galle fort for excellent restaurants, boutique shopping and sunset views over historic sites.

About the area

About Sri Lanka

Average weather

Sri Lanka is one of those places that seems to be on everyone's bucket list, and it sure packs a punch for an island that’s just over a quarter of the size of the UK. From the splendour of roaming wild elephants across the island’s National Parks, to blissful sandy beaches that line the coast, a Sri Lanka holiday has the power to excite a vast range of travellers. Head inland to tiers of lush green tea plantations, trek in the rainforest discovering the rich flora and fauna, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacular view on an epic train journey.
