Girdled by Galle Fort
You’ll know the moment you walk through the vast wooden doors of 20 Middle Street that you’ve happened upon somewhere special. Occupying a prime plot within Galle Fort’s mighty walls, this erstwhile Dutch merchant’s house is as elegant as any of Amsterdam’s finest canal-side homes. Built in 1750, the villa is easily the largest inside the fort, and has high ceilings, swooping stone archways and impeccable, art-filled interiors. Like that well-heeled merchant, you’ll also have a host, private chef and cleaner throughout your stay, ensuring you needn’t lift a finger except to pluck a gilded tome from the shelves.
