Located in the heart of UNESCO Heritage Galle Fort, 71 Pedlar Street is a lovingly renovated Dutch merchants’ house with parts dating back to the 17th Century.  Still retaining many original features yet with all mod-cons, including a/c and a courtyard swimming pool, No 71 is offered either by-the-room or as a whole villa.  Guests are welcome to use the fully-equipped kitchen or there is a cook available by arrangement to prepare meals for you.  Alternatively on the doorstep are Fort’s myriad restaurants and bars offering a wide range to suit all palates and budgets; many even deliver!

Two of the three bedrooms open on to the central pool courtyard area; they both have comfortable large double beds.  The third opens on to the sun-filled rear courtyard and can be configured as a twin if desired – ideal for children or for friends travelling together.  All three rooms have a/c and ensuite shower rooms.

The common areas include huge sofas for lounging around the pool,  a cool and quiet sitting room with smart TV,  a spacious dining area and two further quiet and private seating areas which are perfect for a gentle afternoon with a book.
