Courses

The Palazzo is an ideal place to organise courses and events. With a great variety of indoor and outdoor space, groups can work together but also find spots to relax in privacy.

 

Botanists, artists and food lovers are amongst those who have enjoyed courses whilst families and friends come to celebrate special events such as weddings and anniversaries. 

Please contact us if you would like to run your own course or organise an event here.

The Castle Week

Dates throughout the year

Pick fruit from the trees on the massive castle grounds and - depending on the season - turn them into limoncello, marmalade or even the region’s famous quince dessert, la cotognata. We cook together and make pasta everyday in one of the castle’s seven kitchens.

Demuths - Italian Cooking Holiday (Vegetarian)

September 30 - October 6th 2018

 Come and join Demuths for a sunshine filled cooking week in Apulia. We will be staying in the magnificent Palazzo Bacile di Castiglione, surrounded by ancient olive trees, citrus groves and figs, with fantastic vegetable markets, close to the sea and unspoilt villages.

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.
