Good day, Casa family! Happy Holidays! We hope you are all having a wonderful time during these festive days and that 2023 will be a merry and prosperous year. 

Over the past two years, Casa de Campo Living Magazine has made a few changes, including us going digital and updating our design. The Winter issue looks better than ever! In this issue we are sharing some of this year’s Casa events and occasionshonoring all the good times we have had in Casa, and the many more that are to come! 

This is our 41st edition, and in it, we take a Walk Down Memory Lane and revisit the Altos de Chavón Amphitheater’s 40 years of history and music. We also talk to Jason Kycek, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas, about the exciting new Premier club, rooms, suites and more.

Add to this an appreciation for the Chavón School of Design’s Fashion Faculty students and their fantastic designs with recycled garments in denim inspired by different concepts. We also met up with New York artist Kristin Simmons when she brought her latest Pop art exhibition to Casa de Campo. She is the first artist to take part in the new Artists in Casa program. This program is the result of almost two years of hard work with the aim to revitalize and continue to build upon the great splendor of the iconic Altos de Chavón, known to many as “the artists’ village,” to get inspired by our wonderful surroundings. 

Be on the lookout as the hot-off-the-press print edition arrives soon! We hope you’ll find in the stories published in our Casa de Campo Living Magazine Winter 2022 edition all that you expect and may the new year blesses you with health, peace, joy, and happiness.

Find below a letter to you, our beloved Casa community, by our president and publisher Philip Silvestri.

¡Feliz Navidad, próspero año y mucha felicidad! 

It is with soulful delight that we ring in the holiday season in the bright, sunny and wonderful paradise that is Casa de Campo! It’s the season for joyful celebration with family and friends, both old and new. It’s a season of opportunities to reflect on the great moments from the last year, while enjoying the breathtaking views of the Teeth of the Dog. It’s a time to recharge, while enjoying the new, world class spa facilities, on the recently renovated driving range, or just taking in the incredibly lush landscaping while cruising around the resort in a golf cart, wind flowing through your hair, and discovering all the fantastic new things to see, do and taste.

And there sure are a lot of new things to see, do and explore. From new restaurants across the resort, to the new paddle ball courts, new courses at the Chavon school of design and of course — the opening of 58 luxurious new rooms to entice and luxuriate the most discerning of guests. To give us the full details, we sat down with Jason Kycek, Casa de Campo Resort & Villas’ Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, who shared with us the background story and vision of this new project. Of course, we would be remiss not to mention that this year marks the 40th anniversary of Altos de Chavon and look back at how this iconic village has hosted some of the greatest artists of all time.

On a personal note, as someone who grew up in Casa de Campo, it is so wonderful to see the resort continue to evolve with investments that continue to make this more than a resort, but an incredibly vibrant community perfect for the occasional visit, an ideal place for a second home, or as a primary residence. It’s more than a place to call home, it’s your Casa.

Wishing you warm holiday regards and best wishes for the New Year!
