Welcome to Palazzo Bacile

Located in the Salentine town of Spongano, this superbly restored palazzo is situated in a vast walled garden with a superb swimming pool, citrus groves, palm trees, a herb garden and its own small oak wood.

Its serene environment makes it a perfect place for complete relaxation as well as a ideal base for exploring this exciting and diverse area of Southern Italy.

Accommodation

Sleeping from 2 to 32 people in a broad range of accommodation - from the grand apartments of Tabacchi Sotto with its immense reception rooms to intimate cottages in the grounds - Palazzo Bacile offers the perfect retreat for couples, families and larger groups of friends. For 2018, we have added a new cottage: Cassotto Colombaia

My stay at Palazzo Bacile was indeed memorable. It was exciting to stay in the very old but very comfortable Palazzo. It was full of history. I pictured elegantly dressed guests of past ages dining in the very large dining room with its antique furniture. Sarah, our English hostess and married to Alessandro, could not have been kinder to me when I arrived with my suitcase missing somewhere en route from Australia to Italy. I have very fond memories of my time spent in Puglia and enjoyed painting scenes from landscapes and towns close by.
