We were 9 girlfriends most of who have been friends since high school (almost 45 years). Our trip to Abruzzo was planned almost 2 years ahead as one of our group had previously visited and just knew we would enjoy it....and we did! The moment we arrived in the comfortable van from Rome airport, we were greeted by Massimo with drinks and snacks. We were given a brief introduction to our week and then escorted to our rooms There were a total of 19 guests at the palazzo as we were joined by a group of 10 from Florida All of the reviews for Abruzzo Cibus Carunchio are giving 5 stars and I know if 10 stars were available, that's what the rating would be. Every moment of the week was memorable and very thoughtfully planned and executed by our wonderful hosts - Massimo, Dino, Tony, Sarah and Cheryl "We are walking" was the phrase used by Massimo all week to get us moving/corral us as we visited an olive grove/the town of Vasto where we enjoyed lunch overlooking the Adriatic Sea/the town of Agnone where we saw mozzarella being made and toured a bell foundry Mention should be made of the cooking part of the trip! What fun! It was so relaxed and full of laughs. Dino, Tony, Sarah and Cheryl circulated through the group helping us when we needed it. We left with a cookbook of the recipes we made (along with some others) and inspiration to cook at home Now I'm not a big traveller and most often am counting the days until I can go home. This trip was very different in that I didn't want to leave! I felt so at home and welcomed at the palazzo and the surrounding area of Abruzzo that it was hard to depart on the following Saturday However....I'm going back, yes I am! Another trip this year on my own but will be with some of my new friends from the Florida group. People have said it won't be the same the second time, and to that I say....great! More to love and experience in the most beautiful place on earth I cannot recommend coming to this cooking school enough. It will be an experience that you will never forget!

It was one of the best vacations we have had...and we travel a lot! Although it was a surprise for my husband who likes to cook, I loved it, as well. From the wonderful staff who make you feel like family— to the interesting people who have also come there—to the lovely palazzo we stay at—to the beautiful scenery and charming towns that surround you—to the trips to artisanal businesses—could you ask for more? Have I forgotten to mention the fun times we all had cooking (and drinking) together, and the better times that we had eating our own food and that of the great chef, Mario? Bring your sneakers so you can walk off the calories in the surrounding countryside. Grazie to Christina, Massimo, Cheryle, Mario, Tony and Sarah for making it an unforgettable experience!!

I can only confirm all of the other glowing 5 Star reviews. The accommodations, meals, cooking classes, off site excursions, and the absolutely gorgeous hilltop setting all exceeded our expectations. The staff including Sarah, Tony and Cheryl are simply delightful. Dino is without question, a maestro of the kitchen. The first half of our week was coordinated by Christina and the last half by Massimo. They are warm and professional hosts and it was their father who initiated the restoration and renovation of the Palazzo. My wife and I had not one moment of boredom. Despite the abundance of food, we could always burn off calories by walking to the lower reaches of the village before tackling the steep climb back up to the Palazzo. A beautiful, elaborate on site spa is under construction and soon to be completed. Highly recommended.

Cristina was a wonderful host, taking care of every need. The cooking classes provided interesting hands-on learning. The entire staff was professional, personable and fun. Every delicious meal was made from fresh, local food. Enough time was given between the nearby excursions and classes to relax or wander down the cobblestone lanes of the village. Wine tasting was fun! I recommend getting a massage. My husband took the soap making class & enjoyed it. The sweeping mountain views were beautiful. Lovely weather. Met guests that are now friends. Would love to return. Perfect vacation. Thank you Cristina, Tony, Sara, Dino, Cheryl, Mossimo, and staff - well done!

Palazzo Tour d'Eau planned my dream vacation! They picked us up at the airport in Rome and drove us through beautiful countryside. We arrived at a beautiful old building with a stunning view of the mountainside and were immediately greeted by snacks! Each day was a beautifully organized adventure filled with food, local insights, and breathtaking views. From swimming in the Adriatic to exploring cheese factories (and yes, there were tastings), each day was planned with such care. Then the times we stayed in, we were laughing, cooking or eating (I am not a natural in the kitchen, but Dino had me laughing through each cooking lesson). The hosts were so culturally sensitive & thoughtful - I felt safe and well accommodated the entire time. They made me love Abruzzo as if it were my home. I can't wait to travel back.
