Pointe Sud - Mirissa Sri Lanka

Overview of Pointe Sud - Mirissa

About 40 minutes south of Galle, amid fishing villages and palm fringed beaches that still allow the impression that you have discovered them, sits a rocky outcrop towering above the Indian Ocean. Pointe Sud, hiding behind unassuming gates, was created from the romantic ideal of a gift of love from an adoring husband to his wife. The house has been fashioned on a 'waluwa' manor house and great sensitivity has been used during the construction. Antique doors, window frames and tiles; ..'a nod to the vernacular architecture in which only local materials were used, crossed with a quasi-Palladian facade, and the whole topped by a tiered, pagoda-style roof floating above mock Corinthian pillars'...'the overall impression is one of simplicity, fostered by the generous and uncluttered use of internal and external space, and a fabulous terrace commanding 180 degree ocean views'. There are 4 ensuite bedrooms off the large central living area and a vaulted 'tunnel-like' 5th bedroom located under the terrace. The garden is terraced and on one sits a long strip infinity pool and 2 covered cool areas to sit and watch the passing ships or drift to where ever your heart desires. Steps lead down the cliff to a manicured lawn and bbq area and the private gate onto the beach. 'Old painted Indian temple doors, antique bookcases and cabinets and colonial furniture; woven coconut lining a wooden roof; kitu wood-barred windows topped with old latticework; floaty four poster beds in air conditioned rooms and plaster sheels diffusing wall lighting - even the pale pink exterior paint: everything combines to create an aura of romance and tranquility' (all quotes are taken from an article that appeared in the Financial Times by Teresa Levonian Cole.) This villa joins the very few in Sri Lanka that are amongst the best in Asia.

All meals are for your account but we can, with prior notice stock up the fridge for you.
