Casa de Campo
Casa de Campo is located on the south eastern shore of the Dominican Republic, next to the town of La Romana and just 70 miles from the capital city of Santo Domingo, the oldest city in the new world. A luxurious 7,000 acre ocean front community offering world class golf courses which include the famous Teeth of the Dog Golf Course, Dye Fore and The Links Golf Course plus polo fields, skeet shooting centre, tennis centre, equestrian centre, water sports, spa treatment centre, fitness centre, business centre, private beach, a la carte restaurants, Altos de Chavon (artist village) and The Marina, all of which will please almost any visitor.
The heart of Casa de Campo ocean playground is the Marina—the vision of Gianfranco Fini and Piero Giacosa. Inspired by the quaint seaside villages that dot the Mediterranean coastline, the Marina is more than just a place to moor, it’s an entire community for sport fishermen, yachting enthusiasts, and landlubbers alike.
One of the best things about a Caribbean vacation is getting to spend plenty of time on the beach. Minitas Beach is conveniently located right in the middle of it all, so you never have to go far for a little sun and sand.
There’s also plenty to do, from a variety of watersports like snorkeling, paddleboating, and kayaking to name a few to indulging in a relaxing massage in our open-air pavilion. Enjoy one of the famous piña coladas served in a fresh, local pineapple. When you’re feeling like a snack, you can dine at the Beach Club overlooking the Caribbean Sea
Altos de Chavon
The village is a cultural center for residents, tourists, and working artists from all over the world. Active studios for artists of every medium from pottery to weaving, silk screening, and everything in between line the cobblestone streets alongside shops and boutiques showcasing their unique creations.
The Art Gallery features works from noted Dominican artists, as well as artists from around the world which helps to foster a dialogue of creativity and cultural exchange. Altos de Chavón is also home to the renowned Altos de Chavón School of Design, which is affiliated with the Parsons School of Design in New York.
The extensive equestrian center is among the best in the Caribbean. And if you’ve never saddled-up before, our expert staff is on hand for lessons in English or Western-style riding and jumping, and even grooming techniques and rodeo stunts.
Private guides are available for individual or group trail rides on two of our cattle ranches. Enjoy a leisurely ride through herds of water buffalo, lakes teeming with ducks and local fauna, sugar cane fields, and our on-site horse-breeding operation. The Equestrian and Polo are directed by Fernando Arata, originally from Argentina, a professional polo player with ample experience in the field.
For an authentic in-the-wild shooting experience, look no further than Casa de Campo. The shooting facilities include an onsite 245 acre Shooting Centre, with over 200 stations for trap, skeet and sporting clays and pigeon rings.
Casa de Campo’s shooting center also includes a 110 ft. tower that projects sporting clays—one of the largest in the world, as well as “Rancho Peligro”, a wild bird reserve outside of Casa de Campo where “Driven Shoots” take place.
Slice, serve, and find your sweet spot under the warm Caribbean sun on one of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas’ La Terraza Tennis Center’s 13 immaculate fast-dry Har-Tru tennis courts—that is, if the view doesn’t distract you first.
