House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Teras is nestled in a beautiful tranquil location on the outskirts of Ubud. If you're looking for culture, comfort, nature and inspiration, Ubud is arguably the best place to use as a base if you're visiting Bali. It is surrounded by most of the things that bring people to Bali -- scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, rivers and it's central location makes it easy to get from Ubud to the mountains, beaches, and major towns. Ubud also offers internationally awarded restaurants and a quiet, mature sophistication often not found in the beach areas of Bali.
