galle, sri lanka - part two:

Templeberg Villa

While in Galle, we did not stay within in the Fort but a few minutes outside of the main town, in a beautiful old colonial villa (Templeberg Villa) on an old coconut plantation. With a bub in tow we wanted somewhere we could retreat to during the heat of the day and really relax. Sri Lanka has some seriously stunning accommodation options, which can make for some hard decisions when it come to choosing where to stay. 

The Fort is easy to explore in a short amount of time, however we took our time, making a few different visits at various times of the day over the time we spent in the area. And you cannot beat sunset. Walking around the historical streets at golden hour, and watching the sun set into the Indian Ocean from the Fort walls is pretty magical experience. We also explored Galle town, outside of the Fort, taking in the local fish and produce markets, which I'm always drawn to any city.

While Galle was quite busy in comparison to other areas we had visited (mind you, we were there right in the middle of peak season), and at times a bit touristy, it was still so worth the visit and must do when in Sri Lanka. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Next: Bentota and lots of Geoffrey Bawa goodness.
