We had a terrific weekend in wine country, anchored by our stay at The Canyon Villa. From our welcome on the front steps to the goodbye at our car, Kath and Chef Wills attended to every detail. Their level of hospitality is over the top, and we’ll be reminiscing over the tremendous wine hours and breakfasts for a long, long time. We will recommend this to our friends and family for every visit to Paso Robles.

I can’t imagine being at an actual Italian villa being any better than the experience provided by Chef Wills and Kath. From Kath’s exuberant and personal greeting upon arrival to the warm good-byes, we had an outstanding stay at The Canyon Villa.
The complimentary Wine Hour featured excellent local wine choices and a delicious charcuterie board for each couple. The complimentary breakfasts were as fresh and delicious as they were beautiful. We greatly enjoyed the special dining experience, with Chef Wills fabulous creations, and excellent service by Natalie and Kath.
Our guest suite was serene, beautifully appointed and very comfortable.
We are so thankful to our friends who arranged the weekend and can’t wait to return.
Grazie Wills and Kath!

"Tuscany without TSA" is the best way to explain this fantastic Gem in Paso Robles.
My wife and I spent two wonderful days at this fantastic Villa. 2 miles from downtown Paso and you are transported to a Tuscan hillside villa. The reception and attention you receive from your hosts Wills and Katherine is far superior to any 5 Star hotel, and the gourmet food ranks above most Michelin star restaurants. The rooms (only 4) ensure that you are pampered and have the most fantastic meals by Chef Wills. Katherine's hospitality is evident from the moment you arrive at the gates, she is a consummate hostess. My wife and I have already booked our next visit and will bring another couple to experience this gem of the central coast.

This place is perfect! The property itself is beautiful. The outside is gorgeously landscaped with plants, statues, fountains and places to sit to take it all in. The inside is so luxurious! The decor, cleanliness and all the attention to details (tea, coffee, amenities) make for a pampered feeling from the start. We were greeted by the owner on arrival and she was so welcoming. The chef, the other half of the ownership, is hands down magic in the kitchen. They serve an exquisite breakfast and have small plates and wine tasting daily. IT WAS AMAZING! We were on a weekend getaway and we felt transported in this place. It was the perfect place to stay while enjoying wine country. Thank you so much for such a luxurious weekend! 100% will recommend!

I cannot think of a better place to relax. Canyon villas exceeded our expatations. The room was sensational, the meals we had done by the owner Chef Wills and his wife Katherine were incredable . Their kindness, help were nothing more than great. If you need to relax in the wine country of California think about this wonderful place

This was our second visit to the Canyon Villa. We had a four day stay in this wonderful home and everyday was special. We were greeted warmly as old friends. Our room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Housekeeping is unobtrusive, fast and careful. The staff are warm and welcoming and simply want you to have a good time in their home.

Every morning we were able to enjoy a walk on the property. Breakfast was always on time and the food was exceptional. In the evenings, we arranged to have a charcuterie board prepared to accompany the wines that we discovered. All the food was fresh, farm to table, chosen and exquisitely prepared by our own personal master Chef Wills.

I can only say great things about our visit to the Canyon Villa. I have already made our reservation to return. I look forward to enjoying the company of our hosts and their staff.

We spent a fantastic 4 days with owners Wills and Kath and friends celebrating our 26th anniversary and our friends 50th birthday. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful holiday! The Villa is perched on top of a hill with picturesque views of vines in all directions. The garden smelled of rosemary, lavender and the tall cypress baking in the California sun. Chef Wills prepared gourmet breakfasts which we enjoyed outside on the terrace with fresh juice and wonderful coffee. And the best was wine hour in the late afternoon when we sampled wines and enjoyed imaginative, gourmet cheese plates with ingredients from the local farmer's market to create scrumptious bruschetta, home made pickles or hummus. Always a treat to look forward to. So sad to leave but sure we will return!

Wills and Kath keep a beautiful bed and breakfast that exceeded in all expectations. The property itself is elegant and refined with beautiful grounds. They keep a very tidy establishment, and there are rules to keep it that way. I have a no-shoe rule in my own house, so I understand completely! I enjoyed spending the evenings after wine hour looking out into the sunsetting sky with the Dale Evers statue, “Escuchame.” Breathtaking. I went into town to see his studio after seeing the lovely artwork through the Canyon Villa.

Personal touches touches throughout with handwritten welcome notes, dinner name cards, and introductions to other guests. The room was very clean, comfortable, and felt cozy. I loved the lavender pillow spray!
Each morning started with cornettis and jam, a fruit course, and a savory. Everything tasted divine and I couldn’t imagine a better breakfast. Filling, but never heavy. Wills is an exceptional chef, and he takes the time to explain each element of the wine hour small plates, and is willing to share his methods and recipes (can’t wait to make his mint sauce!). If you can, definitely join the Sunday Supper. It’s a great experience when they bring in winemakers for a personal tasting, and the food is better than any restaurants in the area.

Hospitality was inviting, and by the end I felt like a true friend to Kath and Wills, people I would love to come visit again.

My wife and I came here with three other couples, one of whom was celebrating a milestone birthday. The hospitality and ambiance were phenomenal, and Chef Carter (of Playboy Mansion fame) is the proprietor here and there are some amazing culinary experiences that you can make happen during your stay at the Canyon Villa. Chef Carter made some amazing food for every food eating occasion. Beautiful views, clean facility and it’s an adults only venue with only 4 rooms so we had basically rented the facility out to our party. Can’t wait to come back again. Highly recommend to friends and couples wanting a quaint upscale long weekend experience in the central CA wine country.

Amazing experience! The proprietors Kath and Chef Wills truly offer a rare and special experience with their property. We highly recommend you plan ahead to have dinner onsite one night. Chef Wills is a real master in the kitchen, you will not be disappointed! Attention to detail throughout the home, cleanliness, comfort and beyond it’s really all here. I think all the high quality of reviews speak for themselves. You are going to Paso to relax, enjoy wine tasting and hopefully have a romantic getaway with your partner. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.

Ciao, We would love to have you stay with us in October. Visiting then is magical as harvest is in full swing with wineries bustling with excitement of the grape crush. You are correct that it is impossible to predict state-to-state requirements. We are confident that travel will be open to visit our Villa. We are accepting reservations from out of state guests. I'd like to add that we just received our Select Registry "Select Safe" certification for 2021. This was a rigorous inspection that benefits our guests, our staff and us. Please call us with any questions. We welcome you. Kath and Wills
