Outdoor rose garden at Tuscany Downs

Explore While Staying Local

A lifestyle within your reach

Tuscany Downs Estate is a true luxury rural lifestyle experience upon 5 acres of farmland near Darfield in Canterbury catering to private getaway accommodation, weddings, or corporate retreats.

30 minutes from the central city and, 25 minutes from Christchurch International Airport, Tuscany Downs Estate is in the heart of Canterbury rural living and is beyond a local hotel or motel, with local wineries and golf a short drive away, and can help you experience the best all seasons with large garden areas for relaxing outdoor Summer living, or Winter drinks beside the large outside open fire after a day at one of the six local ski fields.

Our facilities and local attractions will help plan your stay for you. Imagine a dip in the indoor heated pool before breakfast, followed by reading in the garden under one of the mighty oaks or venturing our to shop for local produce, or spending the day tramping on a world class track.
