Villa in fashionable Seminyak in easy distance from popular shops, restaurants and beaches and some of the best SPAS ever. Shopping for clothes and gifts is very close and can be wearying so its nice to come back to a garden and put your feet up. It is also on the edge of a river and rice paddies with an enormos sacred tree reputed to have magical powers. For those who want the best of both worlds...the old and the new. Town and country.
You can rent a bike or a cheap taxi ride of $2-3 will take you to fashionable restaurants,shops and the beaches and a nearby gym.. For those wanting to surf its easy to get a bike with surf board attachment and there is a host of trainers down on double six beach.
Those wanting to scuba dive can find many types of trips to beautiful islands and 'livaboard"!
For those wanting to lie on sunbeds at double six beach and have massages, manicures and pedicures and meals brought to them, once again, 'double six beach' is very popular.
If you want classes in making silver jewelry or you want to head up to the hills and discover the traditional way of roasting and griinding coffee, then a trip to Mundoc can be arranged.
I love to go to the big Bazar in Sulawesi where herbs and spices from all the islands of Indonesia can be found or ordered....herbs and spices for cooking are also for healing and different members of the ginger family are used for different ailments. Greater Galangal or little turmeric?
Another part of the market has traditional cooking equipment and here, for those who love cooking or making healing Jamus, There are stone hand grinders, bamboo baskets for sieves , drying and or steaming. Metal and clay pots. Then I love to bring it all home and make steamed veggie dumplings.
I have an enormous young rotweiler and his two Bali girl friends and we all love to go for walks across the little curved bridge to the rice paddies or a long the river path towards the Temple...stopping on the way to pick wild passionfruits and look once again at the sacred Tree. Must love animals.
Here you can go for walks along .
Must love dogs and cats.
