Historical to say the least...

A  XVII century UNESCO HERITAGE building, inside 3 km of circular remparts. 

Originally Portuguese the Fort was modified by the Dutch and the British. In our house several family generations were making coconut ropes for the ships in the small harbour nearby. Its architecture is most typical, with its specific long shape and backyard so usefull when there was no city drainage. This Colonial House was renovated in 2008 by the UNESCO FOUNDATION (see the plate in our photo album), then set up as a Family Boutique Hotel (LE JARDIN DU FORT) and a Gourmet Restaurant (PUPPETS Restaurant & Café) by the current owner from Sri Lanka. Inside the premises an impressive collection of thirty antique Puppets and various masks are ready for Puppets shows twice a year.

Best location in the Fort,
near the beach and the lively streets
while hidden in a very quiet road.

very friendly atmosphere
and exceptional welcoming owners and staff ;  it makes it unique

the “fancy deco with a French touch” catches the eye.
It is also very clean

mattresses and showers are excellent

Their PUPPETS Fusion Restaurant
is serving the most delicate dishes I had on the island as a Sri Lankan,
based on the traditional local meals and ingredients


Their Chef is very creative,
and with a subtle palate !

and more important for foreigners like us : it is
not over spicy and you can feel an incredible
variety of savours.

Le Jardin du Fort offers a unique proposition in UNESCO heritage Galle Fort,

all unique design, with excellent comfort.
