About Bart

My name is Bart. I am Belgian and live in Brussels. I first visited Sri Lanka in 1986, and immediately fell in love with this beautiful, magical country and its inhabitants. Since then I travelled to quite a lot of other exotic countries, and I know now: Sri Lanka is the best, in every possible way! A few years ago I managed to buy a beach villa near Galle and had it renovated. It's a real gem! I go there 3 times a year and I just LOVE to be there. And the staff have almost become like family. They are so devoted. I hope you will enjoy and love Villa Golden as much as I do. But I'm quite sure you will.

Bart purchased this Villa in 2009

Why Bart chose Galle

Villa Golden is Asian art deco, and has lots of charm. The garden is very large, and it ends right at the beach which is so peaceful. Almost no tourists. It's so private and calm. But on the other hand: in a few minutes you are in Galle, with it's world famous Dutch Fort. And - in opposite direction - in fifteen minutes you are in busy Hikkaduwa with its fabulous reefs. The place to be if you like surfing, snorkeling or diving. Villa Golden offers you everything to have the best holiday!

Large, comfortable rooms with an ensuite bathroom, a/c, good quality matrasses. Linnen and towels changed on a regular basis. The staff cleans the villa daily. All the ingredients are present to guarantee a relaxing holiday in a tropical setting (the garden is amazing!!!) and all of this straight at the Indian ocean with an almost private beach. Pushpa, Susantha and Yasiru are the perfect hosts. And the nightguard is so funny! Nothing is to much for them. We felt pampered from the first day. Breakfasts are healthy and everyday something else. Pushpa and Jasiru cook terrific dishes. I wish this holiday could have last for ever! Already looking to book my next vacation here!

                                                                      The garden is immense, the pool is perfect, the beach at the bottom of the garden is extremely quiet and beautiful.

                                                                      The local towns of Galle and Hikkaduwa are easily reached via public transport or tuk-tuk, and there are a good number of shops within walking distance.

                                                                      We couldn't fault any aspect of our stay, and recommend Villa Golden highly to others!

                                                                      After a tour on the Island, totally impressed by religion, culture and wonderful nature, we enjoyed a weeks rest in the South-West of the Island at Villa Golden.

                                                                      We felt among the “happy-few” to have chosen for this beach Villa!

                                                                      The owners have decorated their house and organized their garden in a way you get the impression of being at home, surrounded by exotic beauty of nature.

Pushpa, Susantha and their friendly team looked after us very well. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they all love children which made us feel very welcome. The villa is on a busy road with continuous traffic which makes the front bedrooms quite noisy especially at night. Overall we had a fantastic holiday.

                                                                      fantastic beach front property
