You can hire a car, or employ a car with a driver, both cheap. They drive on the left, which makes life easy for us Brits!

A drive to Blimbing takes about 15 minute. There is a little cafe (or Warung as they are called in Bali) beside the quiet road, and it is one of the best kept secrets in Bali. The mexican food there is fantastic, Tostatas and tortilla chips, salsa etc, all made with fresh locally grown organic vegetables, and remember to ask for their chocolate coconut cake! While you eat enjoy the fantastic view of real Bali....

Enjoy a massage - a local masseur will come to you, costs around 10 dollars or less for an hour, relax totally....

Enjoy a traditional Balinese "Babi Guiling" meal - spit roast pig. Can be arranged at the villa, cooked on site, costs around 80 - 120 US dollars, but feeds from 8 to 16 people, and includes rice and veggies etc. Yum Yum....

Listen to the wonderful local Gamalan Orchestra....

Visit the famous Balian surf beach, surf or swim if you like, or just enjoy an excellent, cheap meal in one of the Warungs there - we would recommend Tom's Cafe. Click here to see their website.

Just around the corner from the Balian beach is the lovely Gajah Mina Hotel, run by English speaking Frenchman, Domonique. A lovely place for a sunset drink or for a meal. And walk to the headland at sunset, one not to be missed.

Visit the Eco Tower, see the wonderful views of Bali and have lunch, about an hour's drive

Visit Ubud, the cultural and arts centre of Bali, about 2 hours drive,

Visit Kuta, great to spend a night or two at the begining or end of your holiday as it is close to the airport. Great nightlife and restaurants, a little more pricy than eating in the rural areas, but still cheap compared to european prices.

Take part in a local Hindu Ceremony. We can even loan you the sarong! Below is a picture of the village ladies preparing our villa for it's blessing when the building work was complete.

For the farmers amongst us - visit the local weekly cattle market, just 30 mins drive away at Tabanan

Take a walk around beautiful Batu Lumbang

Explore the local hindu temples

Or just chill out by the pool....
