"Friends, Family, Food"

Words simply cannot express what a wonderful time I experienced in Portugal with CDV! I came with my friends, made new friends and we were all treated like family as we cooked and ate together!

"Highly recommend"

If you are looking for an authentic cooking experience with the chance to meet locals to experience the real Italy, this is the tour for you.

"Lovely villa, vistas and vino!"

Villa Cornarea was just lovely and the vistas from the villa deck were spectacular. And the vino....some of the best we've ever tasted!

"An absolute joy!"

The trip was packed with excursions, experiences and adventure and it kept us smiling, or out and out laughing, from morning to evening.


Look no further! These guys are amazing!

"It's a family experience!"

My husband and I never felt like a "guest" on our CDV adventure but always felt like a treasured family member. The CDV team understands how to create a culturally immersive experience.

"What An Amazing Experience "

We were in Sicily with CDV in September 2021. We booked the whole tour with friends. It was such a special trip with cooking classes, visiting many sights, drinking great wine and great food.


It's a fabulous cultural experience!!

"Everything we expected and more!"

Postponed four times because of COVID, when we finally got to go, it was fabulous! Tuscany is a beautiful part of the country with great wine and food everywhere. Will go again for sure.

"I wish i could pick 100 stars"

We were all thinking this sounds too good to be true -well we off the airplane and Massimo was waiting for us with hugs! And it just got better from there!

"La Dolce Vita on the Amalfi Coast"

From the narrow, winding roads to the boats speeding down the water... the incredible Amalfi family at the villa... the food, the scenery and just really everything. Amalfi is a trip not to be missed!

"Bologna Adventure with new Friends"

Every day had its own Highlight. Welcomed in to the home of Silvia Gozzi and meeting Bruna, Pina, Arcangelo and the rest of the family and cooking together was special.
