Historical mansion

After the war, Raffaele IV Duke of Zoagli refused all the offers received from the builders, who intended to speculate, typical attitude of those years, ending up destroying the environment. And he preferred, instead, to keep the cultural and historical heritage handed down for five generations with careful restoration, in order to entertain the exponents of cosmopolitan society with dances, lunches, concerts and parties, as tradition wanted. 

Strengthened by this experience well rooted in their genes, the young people of the generation born at the end of the last century have managed to obtain an ideal fusion between the classic and the contemporary so that they can address the new needs of those who, today, want to organize elegant events. To meet this type of request, the Castle staff has selected the best agency in Genoa to take care of your wedding event.

For over ten years, the Castle staff has made available to customers who wish to organize their events, the ground floor, called the “Garrison” because it was built in the mid-1700s for the Captains of Health to receive and quarantine the plague victims who fled the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. 
The floors of the Garrison are checkerboard, composed of large squares of Carrara marble and inland slate (Lavagna) as the Genoese tradition dictates. The rooms are L-shaped and can accommodate about 130 people seated and 200 standing with a buffet. And in the middle of the arches of the ancient vaults hang the nineteenth-century portraits of some of the twelve sons of the First Duke.
From the three French windows on stormy days the splashes of the sea enter, like on a ship and the most pleasant background that accompanies each of our receptions is the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks.

Rooms & Suites

At the Castello Canevaro elegant rooms and suites are available with all the comforts to accommodate the families of the spouses and their friends.

The gardens

Garden overlooking Portofino

It is the largest and faces directly south towards the Portofino lighthouse and is flooded with sun from sunrise to sunset. It consists of two meadows shaded by imposing maritime pines and holm oaks, where 200 people can comfortably sit, while if the buffet is refreshing it is capable of containing even more than 300.

Baia of Zoagli Garden

Look to the east and show the coast to Punta Manara, beyond Sestri Levante.
It is covered by a white gazebo, supported by eight wrought iron columns on which jasmine and roses climb.
At night the Bay of Zoagli is emerald green because it is illuminated by the four large reflectors inserted in the arches of the Railway Bridge.
In this garden the welcome aperitif is usually hosted since most guests arrive on foot from the village. Under this gazebo, about 200 people stand, seated 150.
Up to 15 cars and 5 other parking spaces can be parked in the park if the spouses also rent the rooms.

Catering service

In order to offer seasonal ingredients from the territory, the Castle staff turns to Manuelina from Recco, leader of the Consorzio della Focaccia di Recco with cheese that has recently obtained the PGI certification at European level. 

Typical dishes include:

  • Corzetti on which the initials of the spouses are printed,
  • Trofie with pesto,
  • cappon magro,
  • Savory stuffed pies,
  • Fried fish served in foil.

The menu proposal includes the table center and the personalized menu. Manuelina’s catering service has exclusivity in the Canevaro Castle.

Junior Suite Portofino

For their Honeymoon, the newlyweds can stay in the Portofino Suite, and can host friends and relatives in the other two bedrooms, Glicine and Cipressi, with their bathroom and air conditioning.

Religious, civil and symbolic ceremonies

The Parish of Zoagli

The Parish of Zoagli, San Martino, is located in the small square paved with a black and white mosaic of Genoese cobblestones called “risseu”, which is accessed by a short pedestrian street also called “creusa”.

Saracen tower

Recently restored and embellished by the Municipality, it is mainly used for civil weddings. Its foundations are early medieval and the location is very panoramic.

Non catholic and Symbolic Ceremonies

We are in contact with Protestant Pastors, Orthodox Pope, Rabbis, organizers and animators for various types of symbolic ceremonies. Many “monsoon weddings” are also performed.
