The house is located deep within the hills of a small Buddhist village called Gampola. It's is very peaceful spot; amassed in foliage with tropical fruits and rare birds to spot. If you wake up early (6am or before), you can go down to the summer house and gasp at the luscious valley covered in mist. This is the perfect place to read, write or sunbathe, or to have a BBQ which was prepared for us one evening.

The housekeeper is super helpful and friendly, he changes the bedding daily, sprays the rooms with Deet and cooks the most fantastic authentic Sri Lankan dishes.

The pool and outside area is very clean and reclusive; there are sun loungers alongside a shaded area. Inside, the house's interior decor is an ode to "old colonial" style, with high ceilings, Chaise longues and lots of interesting artwork. The rooms are very large, clean and each have their own en-suite.

The house is quite remote but if you want to go to Kandy (30 minutes away) you can ask the housekeeper to provide you with a reliable driver. About 15 minutes drive away, into the opposite hill you can visit the Ambuluwawa Tower and gardens. We visited Kandy, Dambulla (slightly further but certainly manageable) and Sigiriya during our stay.

There is also wifi. I would highly recommend.

This bungalow has an absolutely stunning view .. Overlooking a hidden valley, surrounded by hills steeped at times in mist ...
Breathtaking scenery in peaceful surroundings.
The household staff attended to our every needs and their attention to detail and cleanliness was first rate.

An ideal location to explore from .. Gampola a bustling vibrant town full of life and shops. Kandy just 40 minuets away ...
We had a fantastic time and would happy recommend this house to others ... Enjoy x

If you want to save the hassle of being disappointed do not book this place, they double booked us to another family and when we tried to sort this mess out the staff were rude and hung up the phone, they do not have customer service skills and are only after ease of money, they will not go out their way to make your stay welcoming or pleasant.
