The lodge is slightly out of town, but within easy walking distance. The lodge itself is beautiful and spacious, lots of polished wood and different places for people to park themselves to eat, play or just sit quietly reading a book away from others. One...More

Ella has become a hotspot of tourist activity, but this full home (plus garden, playground, and view of tea-covered hills) is just minutes away from the action. The property's caretaker is incredibly helpful and hospitable, cooking meals and offering tuk-tuk rides around town. For a...More

About the neighbourhood
Ella is a beautiful small sleepy town on the southern edge of Sri Lanka's Hill Country. It's situated in the middle of beautiful countryside, with small vegetable plots in the valleys, tea plantations on the hill slopes and forests on the tops.
