This is a little village dedicated to the arts that is in a unique location on a hillside overlooking the Chavon River. It's a beautiful spot to walk around it and view the Fore Dye Golf Course as well as the river valley.

A really nice place for a fewminutes stop . Great panoramic view but with nothing else to do there. Recomended for a 1 hour stop for the view and take photos.

The entire village is beautiful but barren. For me, the ghost town quality was a bit creepy. As a traveler I want to see the locals, mingle with them, soak in their energy. This place is pretty but it's just a shell.

A place to visit with a company. It has many buildings and amphitheatre made of rocks. The river belvedere is fantastic.

When we heard it was a rebuilt village we assumed a poorly done tourist trap, but was pleasantly surprised. It was built very well with a great view of the river and lots of different buildings to see. In order to see all I would recommend you spend half a day touring this site as then you could have lunch... More

It was an interesting experience while we wore in our caraibe cruise. I wasn't expecting to find a rebuilt italian village. You should visit.

Recent returned from a week long stay at Casa de Campo. We visited Altos de Chavon for an afternoon outing. We drove our golf cart to the village which, though we got lost on the way, was a lovely drive. The village is amazing! I kept having to remind myself that it is a recreation of 1800's village, because it... More
