This is a stunning villa located on a piece of land that slopes gently to the shores of Koggala lake with 5 bedrooms. In the early morning hours, you can see fishermen on their wooden canoes row back to the adjacent jetty with their catch of the previous night whilst the monks in the Buddhist monastery on the opposite shore chant their morning prayers. Later in the day the sunsets are spectacular. All the famous beaches of the Southern coast are in close proximity and the historic Galle Fort is a 30 minute drive. The villa comes fully staffed with an excellent chef, a care taker, a house keeper, a gardener and 24 hour security services.
