Romantic getaway in the Sri Lankan

Sri Lanka

Have a romantic gateway in Sri Lanka by enjoying those places:

- Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya, often nicknamed the "Little England" is the highest city in the country. A favorite summer resort for British tea pioneers, the city has retained its old-world charm with its red telephone booths, impeccable golf course, and colonial-style bungalows. The garden of Hakgala, 10 km from Nuwara Eliya, famous for its impressive collection of roses, is worth a visit during the blossoming period in April.

- Ella
The region of Ella and Haputale welcomes you in the heart of splendid mountains and beautiful tea plantations. This is where you can admire the 9 Arches bridge over which the famous blue train passes. Dotted with various waterfalls, it is an ideal destination for amazing hikes for all levels.

- Arugam bay
With its crescent-shaped bay, Arugam Bay is renowned among the international surfer community for its "Point Break". Each year, an international competition is organized here during the best season (from April to September).

It is said that people from Brittany are travelers, I guess I am no exception! If I went around Europe a bit during my youth, I caught the travel virus, during my first expatriation to Mauritius. When I set foot on the sand, it hit me: I was made for the sun. A second experience followed, Reunion Island for two years, exploring the island from one end to the other on the hiking trails. In 2017, I surprised myself when I stopped with my suitcases in Sri Lanka. Beyond the enchanting landscapes, the country has been an emotional and professional upheaval for me and each day brings its share of surprises and emotions. The friendliness of the Sri Lankans, the time which seems to slow down, the thirst-quenching coconut water and the diversity of landscapes and climates all explain how you can never get tired of this country!
