Kandy is 100km (62miles) north east of Colombo and although the town lacks an airport, there are a number of buses and trains running between the two destinations.
It is Sri Lanka's hill capital and, at 488 metres above sea level, has a much cooler and pleasant climate than Colombo or the southern towns. Kandy is classed as a World Heritage City by UNESCO and is home to the famous tooth relic of the Lord Buddha.
Kandy is the venue of the Esala Perahera, easily the most colourful festival in Asia, held in July/August each year, in honour of the tooth relic. The torch-lit streets are filled with elephants and costumed dancers as they pay homage to the casket of the sacred tooth relic carried by the king of the elephants. The procession moves along the streets for seven consecutive nights and concludes on the day of the August full moon.
The tooth relic is housed in a golden temple known as the 'Dalada Maligawa' - the Temple of the Tooth. It is home to wonderful architecture.
Other Activities: Site seeing, nature tours, festivals, nature reserves, temples, dancing
Golf: Victoria Golf club in Kandy : located 45min drive from the house.
The 18 hole course is one of the beautiful places in Asia.
About the owner: My wife and I are living in England with our two small boys. I was born in Srilanka while my wife is English. We are hoping to move to Srilanka with the boys very soon.
Why the Owner Chose Kandy: My wife and I bought his property when we fell in love with it when we saw it for the first time. Our dream house and a dream location. We would eventually live in this house when we move to Srilanka.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house I located very close to the town but got the feel of a remote location. Great for the kids with its big garden and most of all its cooler.
