Description from the owner
La Cannelle is a private villa set on a cinnamon plantation in southern Sri Lanka. It’s an excellent place to tune into nature and relax — making an unforgettable get-away holiday! La Cannelle is less than five minutes away from incredible beaches.
The veranda at La Cannelle is your own private vista of paradise. Relax in handcrafted planters’ chairs and drink in the plantation surroundings - cinnamon and coconut in full flush, wild peacocks strutting on the grounds and lumbering in flight, together with over 30 species of tropical birds and monkeys swinging in the trees.
Sunsets and sunrises are amazing: deep purples, oranges, crimson. ...Read more

How to get to La Cannelle:
FROM THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT NEAR COLOMBO:
You can fly down south on a sea plan to Koggala Airport on Cinnamon Air or Sri Lankan Airlines or by private chartered plane. Sea planes depart from the domestic terminal which is an easy transfer from the international terminal arranged by the airlines. Koggala Airport is a 15 minute drive from La Cannelle. We can help arrange your pick up transportation.
You can book a car or van with a driver. The entrance to the new Airport Expressway is close to the airport. From the Airport Expressway you can connect with the Southern Expressway or take the longer coastal route (see below).
You can rent a car or van with or without driver in Colombo. If you want to drive a car yourself, you need an international driver’s license that must be certified at the Ceylon Automobile Association conveniently located near the Galle Face Green in Colombo.
The beautiful Southern Expressway runs through vast swathes of rubber, tea and coconut plantations. Most people do not think of highways as bucolic but the lack of traffic and the scenery make for a very pleasant 1 hour 20 minute drive down to Weligama. The Weligama exit is just 4 km from La Cannelle. Of course, one could take the alternative route along the coast, 3-4 hours driving in the company of careening buses and darting tuk-tuks – a colourful and adventurous experience.
Slower than the highway, the train is a throwback in time and is an experience in itself. See Sri Lankan life as you trundle along on the narrow gauge track down the coast with a sea view for most of the journey. We recommend the express train from Colombo. It leaves early and takes about 4 hours to Weligama train station.
Locally you can rent tuk-tuks with drivers, motorbikes, scooters and cars.
To reach Galle or Matara, you can take a leisurely drive along the scenic back roads or coastal road or zip along the Expressway, or go by train from Weligama train station.
