The village of Penestanan is set up on a ridge 15 minutes walk from the bustle of Ubud township and has long been known as the artists village. The main road to Ubud is 300 metres away,via a pathway and steps - 20 minutes walk to Ubud or 4 minutes in a taxi from the bottom of the steps.
We are on a quiet walking path surrounded by ricefields and local and expat community life.. Nearby is an organic cafe, local warungs (casual eateries) and western restaurants, art galleries, a yoga studio and local supermarket. It is a SAFE area for women travelling alone.

Interaction with Guests
To help you enjoy the area I have prepared information on my favourite and nearby eateries and spas, local massage and yoga. My drivers and housekeeper are available to assist you during your stay.
This part of Ubud is perfect for exploring village life, walking along pathways that connect the ricefields, attending local ceremonies. It is safe and peaceful and the local Balinese are friendly and willing to help you.
