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.
Upcoming courses in 2018
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.
Some of our favourite days out include shopping in the fish market at Gallipoli and swimming on the superb beaches nearby. Spending time in Lecce admiring the monuments, strolling down the streets of old Lecce and visiting the artisans and specialist food shops. Enjoying a relaxed Sunday lunch at one of the nearby farms (masserie) where the menu is based on local Pugliese produce. Admiring the frescoes in the church at Galatina and having a wine tasting in a nearby 'azienda agraria'.
