The six-bedroom Villa Mana is perfect for extended families or groups of friends who appreciate loads of breathing space. For this is contemporary tropical living on a large scale, with 3.7 metre high ceilings, swathes of kilim-covered black concrete floors, and enough multi-level living space to swallow up a crowd. Supplementing the formal living area are deep verandahs and a huge roof terrace with over-sized daybeds sheltering under a rice-vista pergola. A 17-metre swimming pool, media room with pool table and Xbox, wading pool, and football pitch will keep kids happily entertained, and the beach is just three kilometres away. Villa Mana is tucked into the rural village of Babakan in the Canggu area, just a ten minute drive from the world-class surf breaks and legendary sunsets of Echo Beach where there’s a handful of shops, cafés and restaurants. The villa’s setting, in amongst the rice fields, is attractive and beautifully serene, offering an insight into the way of life and the traditions of the rural Balinese. Seminyak – with its many excellent restaurants and shops - is only a 25-minute drive (10km) from the villa.
