This charming house nestles in traditional working rice-fields in the village of Penestanan, but is only 15 minutes walk from central Ubud. It has two floors, with kitchen and bathroom on each, and separate entrances, so very suited either to renting one floor separately, or for singles or couples sharing the whole house, but with privacy and individual facilities. Each floor has a large double bed with mosquito nets and all linen supplied.

This area is a tranquil haven, with the nearest car access road 5-10 minutes walk away, but being a short and scenic walk to down-town Ubud (about 15 minutes). It is located in traditional working rice-fields, but centrally located for many of the attractions of this area, which include many fine restaurants, spas and very interesting shops selling all kinds of beautiful clothes, carvings and artefacts made in Bali.
Penestanan is known as a place to which artists and craftsmen of all kinds have migrated, and there are a number of museums and art collections nearby. Additionally, there are numerous dance performances which take place, and the visitor to Penestanan will likely witness one or more of the village ceremonies which Balinese culture is famous for. This area is also central, with easy access to tourist attractions further afield. A scenic drive of 45-60 minutes will take you to the beach, while further inland visit the springs at Tirta Ganga or the volcano Mount Agung.
