Sri Mathie, built in 1910, has large rooms and high ceilings. The house is furnished with family antiques and historic art works. It is in a forested area, but it is just five minutes from the sea and 20 minutes from historic Galle Fort. Sri Mathie is a working estate with coconuts, rubber, mangoes, cinnamon and pepper. We grow organic vegetables, and produce honey. Our chickens provide eggs. We can give guests the best of Sri Lankan and European food.
