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.
