With its tropical beaches lined with palm trees and coconut trees, its magnificent tea plantations, its spice gardens, its herds of wild elephants, Sri Lanka is a fascinating country steeped in tradition. Renting a private property in Sri Lanka will satisfy travellers who are passionate about culture and discovering new places, though it will appeal just as much to holiday-makers looking for a quiet place to unwind.
