Canggu Homestay: an Urban Farmhouse
Drawing inspiration from a childhood in Portugal, internationally renowned chef Will Meyrick has brought the rural elegance of an urban farm to Bali. Reminiscent of the homes of his youth, large, airy rooms, spacious verandahs and shared indoor and outdoor spaces, including a swimming pool, are ideal settings for long lunches or simply to relax and enjoy peaceful solitude. Manicured grounds lead to vegetable gardens bursting with fresh produce, and stalls for the kitchen pigs, foraging for compost. The Balinese chickens enjoy life in a bamboo ‘palace’, providing the Villa with fresh eggs and great fertilizer.
As the owner and chef of some of Bali’s best and most authentic restaurants, Will Meyrick is a well-known name across the country and one of the most respected maestros of the South East Asian food scene. Will continues to explore the culinary landscape of Asia, taking inspiration from the unique food culture of each destination. He can be found at street stalls, in neighborhood kitchens and backyards, at markets, getting off the beaten track to get to the heart of the dishes that move and shake him, tracking down the original recipes that are handed down through generations.
