We have been to Europe many times but our Abruzzo trip was like no other trip we have every experienced. We were tired of constantly rushing from one city to another and getting home exhausted. Massiso, Graziano, chefs Dino and Cheryle and staff went beyond the call of duty to make sure we had a great time. And they paced... More

Massimo and his staff felt like family after this week! The history of the area and the fabulous food we enjoyed at every meal will always be one of our fondest vacation memories. A few tips towards the practical side...Carunchio is a small village on a very steep hill - bring good walking shoes if you plan on exploring the... More

Didn't know what to expect but had spent lots of time in Italy before. The setting was great but hospitality was even better. The cooking and sightseeing were fun but best of all we came back rested and relaxed and that was due to the owner and staff's planning and execution.

Ditto to the 125%!! My wife and I were also part of the same group with Richard and his wife. What a great week spending time with new friends both in our group and with the folks at Palazzo Tour d’Eau. The only thing I knew before going on the trip was that we were going to spend a week... More

The views in Carunchio are stunning. From the Palazzo you have a 360degree panoramic view right out of a renaissance painting.The Palazzo is a constant cool temperature due to its stone structure and high ceilings. Bring a sweater or light jacket for evenings in spring. Rooms are spacious and so are private bathrooms. Beds are firm but comfy. Don't bring... More

We were with Richard's group (125%) and he summed up our experiences perfectly. It was a wonderful experience and my husband wasn't so sure he would like a "cooking school". He had fun anyway! We all did!

We just finished an exceptional week with Massimo and his staff. We were part of a group of 25 from the Southern United States. The experience exceeded our expectations by at least 125% because it is so much more than a cooking school. It is an immersion week in the life of the Abruzzo Region, an area that does not... More

Abruzzo is the perfect setting for this cooking school experience, because the Abruzzi treat food with the respect it deserves. Massimo and Company are first class guides to the Italian cooking and food experience, and the restored castle should be on all traveler's bucket list.

There are not enough stars to rate the experience here in Carunchio. This was our second time here to the Palazzo and the cooking school. Why? Because it is truly the most fun vacation ever. They know how to teach you to cook the most incredible Italian dishes, make you feel special and show you what the "real" Italy is... More

This was one of the best weeks I have spent in Italy. The accommodations were great, the scenery was spectacular, and the staff could not have been better! The Abruzzo cooking school gets an A+. Can't wait to go back!
