This stunning Bali villa is surrounded by traditional rice paddy in a peaceful hamlet in Canggu. The lush panorama can be enjoyed from stylish living areas overlooking the infinity-edged swimming pool or through the picture windows of the comfortably cool interiors, where white walls accented by blonde wood create a fresh, soothing ambiance. This family friendly, five-bedroomed villa has a wading pool, TV room and expansive lawns for the kids to play. Sunsets are magnificent, with attentive staff on hand to serve cocktails and canapés on the rooftop terrace, while gourmet meals prepared by an inspired chef are another highlight. The surrounding locale, apart from seemingly endless rice fields and palm groves, includes a tiny village with ornate Hindu temples and small shops selling local-style homewares and snacks. It is easily explored on foot. The closest beach is Pererenan, a rugged and windswept stretch of coastline ideal for beachcombing, with a small kiosk selling coconuts and Bintang beer. This beach can be a little rough for swimming, so best to walk a couple of hundred meters south to Echo beach and swim between the flags. You can also find a number of cafes strung along the rocks here and a lively atmosphere in the late afternoon when the sunset barbecues get underway at Echo Beachhouse. The Batubolong area that adjoins Echo Beach is just 4km from the villa and is fast becoming Bali's trendiest beach district with cafes springing up all over the place. Catch live music at Deus and Old Mans, grab a croissant or rustic loaf from the fabulous Monsieur Spoon or browse the hip boutiques. Those who wish to tap into Bali's more cosmopolitan vibe or indulge in a gourmet adventure of world class proportions will be happy to know Seminyak is just 12km from the villa.
