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

My heartfelt gratitude to the hosts of The Awaiting Table for arranging such a fabulous venue such as the Castle week in Italy! Silvestro and the staff were the most charming hosts and able to meld a diverse group of people attending the course, who did not know each other previously, in to a laughing, light hearted bunch carrying on like old friends. The cooking instruction was superb, as Silvestro always managed to teach the subtle concepts of regional Italian cooking to the group and to make every person feel as if they had received his personal attention. I was very impressed by the knowledge and organization of the school-they had all the details covered. Many thanks for an outstanding holiday: it ranks as one of the best in my lifetime!!!
