This typical Balinese cottage is located near Ubud and is perfect for a very quiet and relaxed vacation in the middle of ricefields – if you don't mind the 10-minute walk to reach your vacation home as there is currently no car access.
This cottage is tucked away in the village of Penestanan near Tjampuhan, Ubud. It is set in a walled garden with a free-form swimming pool in the middle of ricefields and is a perfect retreat for those who appreciate nature, informality, and privacy.
This cottage is really located away from the tourist crowds – you have to walk 10 minutes from the parking area at the main road via a narrow concrete path to reach the Ricefield Cottage (motorbike transport can be provided if required).
A 10 minutes drive brings you to the artists center of Ubud with its many art galleries and museums (e.g. Antonio Blanco, Agung Rai & Neka museums), numerous shops and excellent restaurants such as Mozaic and Lamak etc., daily Balinese dance performances, frequent other cultural events and temple festivals.
White water rafting on the Ayung river starts close-by, and the nearest beaches are only 30 minutes away. It's about 40 minutes to Sanur or Denpasar, and about one hour to Bali's international airport, Kuta and Legian.
Completed in 2002 it features a traditional thatched roof, carved wooden pillars and large glass windows to take full advantage of the spectacular view. Although Balinese in design, the cottage is equipped with modern amenities to make your stay comfortable.
From the villa gate, you walk through a walled garden with tropical flowers, a two-level balé (open pavilion) and a fish pond. The two-storey main house accommodates an open reception/living area facing the entrance/main gate, two bedrooms and a small kitchen.
In the back of the house there is the free-form swimming pool with deck chairs and another two-storey balé with an open dining area on the ground floor accommodating up to 6 persons and a open-air living area above overlooking the rice fields. A separate building nearby accommodates a guest toilet.
The master bedroom on the ground floor has a kind-size bed. The second (up-stairs) bedroom is accessed via a staircase from the master bedroom and has twin-beds. Each bedroom has air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, satellite television, a safe, a bathroom with bathtub and a separate toilet.
