Good day, Casa family! We hope you are all safe and healthy. As we slowly go back to “normal”, we are very grateful to be able to live and work in Casa de Campo. So much has changed this year, but we are hopeful that 2021 will be the year we’ve been longing for. 

This year, Casa de Campo Living Magazine has made a few changes which include us going digital and updating our design! The spring magazine looks better than ever!

Imagination and creativity have no limits, we believe everything around us can be considered as art and more so living in Casa de Campo. Here we have met local and international artists; We have delved into works that have intrigued us or that have impacted us with their realism; We have witnessed the evolution of ballet in La Romana, and enjoyed the colors and sounds of Dominican Carnival.

In this issue, we celebrate art and all those dreamers who have created a masterpiece out of anything.

This is the 36th edition, and in it, you will find a tribute to Elizabeth P. Zeller and the ballet academy’s 50th anniversary; we also continue with our ‘Getting to know our community series’ with Mr. Jeronimo Esteve III; explore Casa de Campo’s newest Peruvian restaurant Causa; we talked to Dr. Francis Silvestre from Dental Integral, Argenis Lebrón a Chavonero that pushes the limits, and the charismatic Carnival icon, Juan Francisco Vásquez. 

We hope you’ll find in the stories published in our Casa de Campo Living Magazine Spring 2021 Art edition all that you expect and that it will be to your liking. Be on the lookout as the hot-off-the-press print edition arrives soon!

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

Getting back in the saddle!

Every day we are getting back to ‘normal’. Of course, in the lush tropical paradise that is Casa de Campo, normal has never been part of the vocabulary. Even during a global pandemic, the amazing Casa de Campo team continues to elevate every experience possible, something everyone, guests and villa owners alike, is very grateful for.

So, as we all slowly get vaccinated and life begins to settle back to normal, we can also appreciate how wonderful certain aspects of quarantine have been … like working from “home” at the beach or by the pool. Let’s face it, we would be hard-pressed to think of a better place to call our home office—and now that virtual working has gone mainstream, so too has the amount of time we can spend enjoying the lifestyle, services, amenities, and comfort of this little slice of heaven. 

In this issue of Casa de Campo Living, we’ve focused on our incredible community, the arts, and a few tastes of the Dominican Republic—all a not-so-subtle reminder to enjoy life in Casa to the fullest. So, whether you choose golf, lounging on the beach, or going for a horseback ride, it’s time to get back out there and make sure to enjoy every moment. 

Warmest regards, 

Philip Silvestri
