Between Santo Domingo and Punta Cana, is this beautiful Renaissance-inspired villa overlooking the Chavon River in Casa de Campo.
Between historic Santo Domingo, the first city founded by the conquistadors of America more than 500 years ago, and the tourist Punta Cana, the traveler will encounter one of the treasures of Dominican Republic: Altos de Chavon. If we had to choose a place, the crown jewel of the Caribbean island, this would certainly be Altos de Chavon, because it offers the traveler much more than the classic all-inclusive bracelets and beaches full of tourists from Punta Cana. Urban and architectural caprice of cobbled streets, coral stones, noble woods and iron forged by laborious handmade crafts, turned into a dynamic center of international art: it has served as refuge and inspiration to countless creators from all over the world, being a unique and different scenario surpassing what one hopes to find in this Caribbean country.
Altos de Chavon is located in Casa de Campo, A luxury residential located in La Romana. Is a replica of a typical 16th century Mediterranean villa, built in 1976 and whose legend says it was a birthday present from a wealthy businessman to his daughter. It is located at the top of a leafy hill on the Chavon river. River that has served as the stage of filming of numerous films as Apocalypsis Now by Francis Ford Coppola.
Altos de Chavon also allows to enjoy one of the great attractions of Dominican Republic: the hospitality of sincere smile of its inhabitants and the Caribbean son that runs through its narrow, winding streets. Fashion stores, jewelry, gifts, cigars, famous restaurants and bars, cafes and even a nightclub. All impregnated with that Caribbean style that guarantees an instant crush – and an eternal relationship – between the visitor and this beautiful Dominican enclave.
