"It's paradise" We spent a week in La Cannelle. It's a great place for relaxing and honey moon. It's clean, quiet and safe. The service is considerate and the food is very delicious. The owner arranged a car to pick up us from Colombo airport and took about 2 Hrs to arrive. The Villa is fantastic. We saw lots of animals (no danger), such as birds, peacocks, fireflies, and monkeys in the Villa. It's close Weligama Bay and takes less than 5 mins by car.

"Tranquil oasis on a cinnamon plantation" Our family of five spent three days here in this beautiful villa hidden away on a cinnamon plantation near Weligama. The managers Cyril and Rajeni were lovely and very helpful. We enjoyed doing a tour of the plantation and relaxing by the pool after a hectic couple of weeks of travelling. Our kids loved surfing down towards Midigama (the owner Jack recommended Michael Bromley at Lions Rest for surfboard hire etc), plus eating out at Zephyr at Mirissa, Our stay here was really lovely. Highly recommended.

"What a wonderful holiday we had at La Cannelle!" The house was beyond expectations and is one of the most beautiful settings I have ever been in. The staff made the stay even more special. They are so kind, attentive and warm and helped us with everything, not only in the house but organising transport for our excursions and local trips, and their cooking was the gastronomic highlight of the vacation. We were so excited to visit Sri Lanka and it did not disappoint in any way. The view of the colours of the pool, the sky, and the greenery across the verandah when we opened the bedroom door in the morning will live in my memory and brighten up many a dull day in London. I do hope we can go again some day.

Thank you both so much for allowing us to visit your most unique and special place.  We so loved our visit and both Siril and Hirushi looked after us so well explaining the whole cinnamon growth and then harvesting process so clearly and informatively. We also had some rather good homemade eats made by Siril's wife... we learnt a lot about cinnamon... what a gorgeous place you have there!

Hearty thanks to you from Harry and me for the arrangements you made for our trip to Sri Lanka.  Things couldn’t have gone more smoothly!   We also had the pleasure of making a quick visit to your lovely home and to enjoy some tasty baked sweets prepared by your housekeeper.  Our trip was a delight in every way and in no small part due to your help.

Last Xmas 2012/13, I had the fortune of being able to rent one of the most wonderful houses in Southern Sri Lanka. The house is located just outside of Weligama on a 9 acre Cinnamon plantation: the house is a modern style with class and character and purpose built for pleasure. Each of the two bedrooms features private internal and exterior showers, wardrobe space, very comfortable beds and classic furniture. The kitchen is a Chef's dream (being a chef much appreciated) and the lounge/veranda area is perfect for lazy hazy days of Sri Lankan summers. The veranda wraps around half of the house and is completely open. The Planter chairs are perfect for putting ones legs up to gaze across the Estate. Mornings are especially brilliant for wild life with wild peacocks flying and the sound of monkeys in the distance. It is a bird watchers’ paradise as well. The staff are excellent, and live on the property. Tea, a Sri Lankan staple, is served as wished in a proper tea set. The staff also cooked some excellent Sri Lankan dishes when we felt inclined to just hang out at the House.

Thank you again for the delicious feast your staff prepared for us - it was by far the best meal we had while in Sri Lanka.
