It is a modern holiday villa different in design to most other villas found within Galle Fort. It has high timber roofs, tall glass windows to welcome the tropical breeze, a vertical garden which gives a sense living with nature and interiors with a blend of Western and Oriental touches. Attention to detail includes louvered teak shuttering, handmade tiles and polished terrazzo bathrooms. Enter through Middle Street into the living and dining room with its vast timber ceilings. Through the living room is a TV area and kitchen opening out to a verandah and the gardens. Bedrooms are on the upper floor. Fortaleza Middle Street welcomes families.
