A First Glimpse of the Sensual Luxury of The Canyon Villa

Makes the Heart Beat Faster, Awakening the Senses

Like an Italian villa perched on a Tuscan hillside, The Canyon Villa is high above the rolling hills and picturesque neighboring vineyards of the acclaimed west side Paso Robles wine region. The Canyon Villa offers four guest rooms, each uniquely decorated and appointed with luxurious extras such as bubbling spa tubs and plush towels. You can enjoy your gourmet breakfast on the Terrace, under the Pergola or in our dining room. Every afternoon we offer a wine hour from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. showcasing Central Coast wines with cicchetti’s and local and international cheeses. Enjoy the respite on our front Terrace during sunset or seated on the Back Terrace by the bubbling fountain or under the Pergola which seats eight with vistas of our neighbors’ vineyards and olive orchards.

Beyond the elegant setting of our Villa, go hiking through our eleven acres, or bike the back country roads while admiring the dramatic views. Our Insider’s Guides, published quarterly exclusively for our guests, can assist your wine touring plans to visit local wineries, to explore cultural venues or to pursue outdoor activites including golf, whale watching, fishing, disc golf and zip-lining. In the evening, enjoy the fabulous local dining scene or with a minimum of 48 hours notice, reserve a world-class dining experience with Chef Wills at the Villa. The Canyon Villa is also the ideal location for day trips to other locales, such as San Simion’s Hearst Castle, Cambria’s art galleries and Avila’s beaches.

Indulge your love of wine or your love for each other. Plan a romantic getaway to Paso Robles Wine Country to appreciate the intimacy, sophistication and luxury of The Canyon Villa.
