Conceived by a visionary millionaire, designed by world-renowned architects and home to humble estate workers, 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. It has evolved and changed in the years since. Today, it's a bustling, contemporary shopping destination. You'll find the national chains you love, as well as, one-of-a-kind shops you won't find anywhere else. Men's, women's and children's clothing. Gifts, jewelry and art. Housewares, furniture and books. Everything you can imagine. Biltmore Village was designed by the finest architects of the day. It was built so the individual pieces fit together into a harmonious whole. It is the definition of "great taste." So it should be no surprise that Biltmore Village would be home to some of Asheville's most beloved restaurants. It's the perfect night out for foodies and friends. Biltmore Village is a destination in and of itself. But thanks to the variety and quality of accommodations available there, it's also a great launching point to see Biltmore Estate, the rest of Asheville and all of Western North Carolina. You'll find historic Bed & Breakfasts, four-star hotels, nationally recognized chains, and independent hotels, as well as economical options for the budget-minded traveler. Even without its history, even without its architecture, even without its charm, Biltmore Village would be among Asheville's can't-miss destinations. It is, in short, a destination unlike any other.
