Villa Canova is an elegant, archetypal eighteenth-century Tuscan villa nestled in the Versilia hills surrounded by ancient olive groves.

Sympathetically restored to retain the spirit of the original building, with every contemporary comfort subtly introduced within stunning authentic architecture, guests will immediately imbibe the wonderfully executed tranquil and secluded home which epitomises Tuscan grace and charm.

The beautiful rooms at Villa Canova are a triumph of eighteenth-century frescoes with beautiful beamed ceilings, elegant period furniture and unique artwork.

Twelve guests can be accommodated across six bedrooms, each of these overlooks the enchanting gardens and landscape. The stylish bathrooms are finished with beautiful Italian marble and hand-painted ceramic tiles. The bedrooms have a regal quality to them, with ornate and opulent furnishings, plush fabrics and solid timber furniture along with gilded mirrors and fantastic antique lighting and draped silk curtains.

Each bedroom has its own unique, characterful touches, whether it be exposed wooden beams, picture windows prettily framed or sumptuous fabrics.

The living spaces are simple yet elegant, offering a space for relaxation and for the family to come together at the end of a busy day; there is a beautiful reading room, as well as open plan living room; et every turn, every detail has been thoughtfully considered. The sense of history and the stunning views make this home unique.

The kitchen has a farmhouse appeal, yet is fitted with top range appliances, beautiful low hanging Scandinavian style lighting and beautiful locally crafted tiles. There is a separate television room, characterised by its playful pillar box red accents and bold red smog fridge! Ideal for sitting back with a beer at the end of the day.

There is a games room, complete with pool table, a stunning formal “drawing room,” with grand piano and beautifully frescoed ceilings, as well as a further rather regal sitting room which boasts stunning oil paintings and pale pistachio, lemon yellow and dusty pink toned upholstery. A particularly charming touch would be the villa’s private chapel, a preserved piece of the eighteenth century.

The lawns are impeccably maintained, with beautiful views and ample little private seating areas, with the fragrance of olive groves and lemon trees in the air. A classic Tuscan walled garden with its different layers, and a huge covered outdoor dining space, together with the little chapel, Villa Canova is suitable for family events, anniversaries or very small weddings. With elegant stone steps, pathways and tall poplars, this is every inch the mature Tuscan garden, overlooking a renaissance art piece style view.

Villa Canova offers the very best of a sedate and refined original Tuscan private home, along with an array of staff services for guests every convenience. From visits and tours of wine cellars to cookery lessons to swimming instructors to driving services or wellness and treatments, the staff are on hand to meet guests needs whatever these may be!

For a preserved piece of original Tuscan dolce vita within regal and opulent surroundings, panoramic views in one of the most well-heeled parts of Italy, look no further; if history, art and original architecture are a passion, guests will be delighted at this home.

Villa Canova is about ten minutes from the medieval city of Pietrasanta, which is known for its artistic heritage, on the Tuscan Riviera of Versilia. Versilia draws a well-heeled International crowd and an active summer nightlife season.

The coastal shelf along this part of the Tuscan coast is sandy and offers a very gradual slope into the sea, making it ideal for families with young children; the Versilia beaches offer surfing, sailing schools and golf course at Forte Dei Marni.

Forte dei Marni, is just a short distance away: a buzzing nightlife spot, known for its array of designer Italian boutiques, it is an enchanting little place, one of the most popular seaside resorts Tuscany has to offer.

This region is known worldwide for its incredible quality marble, with quarries at Carrara in which Michelangelo carved his masterpiece. The primary art cities of Tuscany are all accessible in a day trip: Florence, Lucca, Pisa and Siena.

Pietrasanta is famous for art galleries and an excellent array of restaurants. This area of Northern Tuscany is rich with culture and history: archaeological sites, national parks, castles, mountain trails and open-air theatre, guests will have ample options to choose from.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The beaches in the Versilia region of Tuscany are known for their long stretches of golden sands and gentle incline into the sea, which is ideal for children.

The gardens at Villa Canova are an oasis of safe and peaceful discovery for children, with layer upon layer of lawns, woods and hidden nooks, this is an ideal space to roam and explore. Alfresco meals will be a novelty, while there is a swimming instructor on hand as well as a pool table for older children.

For day trips, among the highlights for children in Tuscany, Pinocchio Park Collodi is a great day out - Collodi is home to a theme park dedicated to Pinocchio and his adventures, with activities like literary itineraries, buildings and sculptures set amidst the greenery, art exhibitions and illustrations, puppet making workshops and more. Rather than being a Disney style park, it is more a cultural and natural environment, very Italian in style.

Pistoia zoo is located in the hills near Pistoia and is one of the most famous zoos in Italy; covering a space of seven hectares and an array of species for a fun and educational day out.

The water park, Aqua Village is located in Follonica, near Grosetto, and offers a range of slides and rides from gentle toddler splash pools to more thrill-seeker level for older children.

From hiking, to horse riding, to waterspouts, to cultural heritage, children of all ages will learn so much from a visit to Tuscany: what could be more enchanting than a day of dolphin watching in the reserve known as Pelagos Sanctuary in Viareggio, followed by a meal in a local hilltop restaurant - offering sublime, flavoursome local specialities followed by fantastic gelato and cream filled pastry treats that the region is known for.
