Canggu is to the North/West of Seminyak, where the countryside breaks through again giving rice field views and open spaces again. Echo Beach (a nice walk from Villa Vayana) is a surfing mecca, with laid back bars and restaurants, sea-food bbqs and a great place to watch the surfers (or the kids playing on the beach at low tide). Also the spectacular Tanah Lot temple is close by, as is the equally spectacular Nirmala golf course. For kids apart from the beach, there is horse riding, and a range of sports and activities at the Canggu Club, and of course the attractions of Seminyak are just a 30 minute drive away (or a 60 minute walk along the beach). Basically Canggu is nice relaxing, green, place to stay that is still close enough to the attractions of Seminyak such that you can easily pop in for a morning or an evening if you want to.
