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.
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
Palazzo Bacile is an ideal place to hold events and attend courses; Cooking and other courses are available throughout the year providing opportunities to explore regional cusine, draw inspiration from the Pugliese landscape, connect with its people and soak up its culture.

One never knows what to expect when visiting a castle from the middle-ages but I will say that the experience far exceeded what I could have imagined. The rooms were spacious, updated with all the modern conveniences and the beds were extremely comfortable. The castle and grounds were in impeccable condition. One could stroll within the walled gardens, picking ripe oranges right from the tree, taking in the fresh beautiful smells of herb gardens inside the castle walls and imagine how things were before the busy world of the digital age. Even though I tended to stay with the group during my visit, we had the entire use of the castle and it was always easy enough to explore and find a quiet personal place to sit and rest privately or to read a book. Many thanks for an outstanding holiday: it ranks as one of the best in my lifetime!!!
