Villa Eyrie Resort
Malahat, Vancouver Island
Giving you a fresh outlook on Vancouver Island (quite literally), this mountainside hideaway creeps up towards Malahat’s summit to reveal coast and mountain views from its perch 1,880 feet above sea level — and yet it’s still just half an hour from Victoria. Covering 95 acres near wineries and Goldstream Provincial Park, it may have been inspired by Italy from its architecture to its menus, but it’s still completely in tune with its stunning Canadian surroundings, with farm-to-fork food at Summit Restaurant, island-sourced ingredients in Tuscan Spa, and views of Saanich Inlet through the floor-to-ceiling windows fringing its mineral-rich saltwater pool. Even its bar mixes Italy’s love of racing with the local influence of Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, with its Driver’s Lounge rich in nostalgia from its crackling fire to its vinyl record soundtrack.
