I recently spent a few days with the great merchants and people located in Historic Biltmore Village in Asheville, NC. Since everyone is gearing up for Thanksgiving, I wanted to give you a sneak peek of the preparations they are making for the upcoming holiday season. Biltmore Village was created as a counterpart to Biltmore Estate. It was a planned community for estate workers as well as an independent community all its own.
Today, it’s a bustling destination for Asheville residents, as well as visitors from all over the world. I was lucky to explore Biltmore Village and learn more about the history and operations behind the scenes, and it makes me appreciate my monthly trip to Asheville even more. Enjoy these photos as I attempt to do justice to the architectural gem and the folks who make it great.
The Falafel and Tzatziki at Rezaz Mediterranean cuisine in Historic Biltmore Village is a foodies dream! While I wanted to sneak the plate back to my hotel room, I opted to leave it for the rest of the guests to sample and enjoy.
Surface Gallery is the spot to go for the beginning art collector to find affordable pieces from a carefully curated collection. We plan to add a few pieces to our home with the guidance of the amazing curators at Surface. The collection is small and chosen with care for the patrons who visit, whether they are new collectors, or old hands.
While you’re in Asheville, head over to the Biltmore Estate where the Rosso di Verona (Italian rose marble) lions await you while festooned in their Christmas finery. I’m a season pass holder to Biltmore and can still remember my first trip over 30 years ago when I was a little girl. The house never ceases to amaze me and I see something new every time I visit.
Disclosure: I attended a FAM trip with Biltmore Village, who provided my accommodations and meals.
