Polheena Estate

The original house on Polheena Estate was built in the early 19th century and is known locally as a Walauwe or manor house. The architecture has been influenced by Portuguese, Dutch and the British. Who in turn have colonised and left their historical associations in Sri Lanka and the Galle area.

located 1 mile inland from the Indian Ocean and Galle's famous beaches. Now lined with boutique hotels and villas discreetly entertaining the latest travelistas and gypsetters seeking the latest surf spots, to other well travelled creatives who draw-up their own maps.

Additional Location Information


Polheena Estate is located 1 mile in land from Talpe beach road surrounded by paddy fileds and thick rich forestry .

Talpe Stretches a distance of less than ten kilometres between Unawatuna and Koggala, Talpe's swathe of golden sand is fringed by the island's most concentrated collection of upmarket beach villas that stand almost shoulder to shoulder facing the sea. With an idyllic position overlooking the Indian Ocean and close to the many facilities of Galle, Talpe is a small seaside village with little more than a handful of local provisions shops and local eateries to offer in terms of commerce, although tuk-tuks are aplenty and the friendly local people are well used to the sight of visitors enjoying its long stretch of sandy beach.

Swimming in the sea is possible in some areas along the coastline and Talpe's rustic, laid-back charm invites people looking for a quiet out of the way sun spot whilst the sweeping bay of Unawatuna and all her facilities are never far away.
