My trip to Palazzo Tour D’Eau in Carunchio, Italy was a birthday gift from my wife. A nice gift and, as far as I knew, it was an opportunity to attend a “cooking school” in the Abruzzo region of Italy—a part of Italy I had never been to. Plain and simple. Little did I know, but quickly came to realize... More

My Mother and I visited this enchanting Palazzo the 3rd week of April. We are not even back in the states yet! We started the week being hosted by Christina and then her incredibly handsome and all engaging brother, Massimo, hosted the better part of the week. Their team, Dino, Sara, Graciamo and newly anointed Ashley were the best! The... More

We spent the first week of November with Christina et al at "The Palace," and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more....The staff, from Christina to Dino & Cheryl to Graciamo and Sara and Davida were all incredibly warm, helpful, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about all things Italy! We (12 couples) had four "classes" where we spent several hours preparing/then eating... More

The Palazzo Tour d'Eau is billed as a cooking school, and you do learn a fair amount about the cuisine of Abruzzo and how to prepare several dishes. But it is not a hard-core chef's school experience. Instead, it is a fun, anyone can do it week of excellent food, sightseeing and learning hosted by the friendliest staff anyone could... More

A perfect week----fantastic accomidations, staff, activities, classes! What more could you want!?! Wine and food at all meals were included, delicious and plentiful. The pizza party on Friday night was the perfect way to end a perfect week.

As the title of this review suggests, you will fall in love with the Palazzo Tour d'Eau, the town of Carunchio, the entire staff, and the entire experience. My wife and I have now been twice and we are already planning a return trip from 2016! Massimo and his staff make this an unforgettable experience and they truly think of... More

My sister and I have travelled numerous times to Italy, but never as part of an organized "tour", so I really didn't know what to expect. Our week was filled with wonderful food, wine, new friends, fun, food, wine, laughter, food, love, wine, music, sights, sounds (loved those church bells), cooking classes, and outdoor experiences. Oh, did I mention FOOD... More
