Palazzo Margherita is the realization of renowned director Francis Ford Coppola’s dream to convert a 19th-century palazzo in his grandfather’s charming hometown into a luxurious, boutique hotel; the restoration took five years. Guests can choose from nine uniquely elegant rooms and suites with original details such as stone walls, frescoed ceilings, clawfoot tubs and handpainted tile floors. Amenities include a screening room with 100 Italian films personally selected by Coppola, an eat-in kitchen where guests are taught to make pasta by hand and a delightful café overlooking Bernalda’s town square.
Why we love it: Stay in Room VII with furnished outdoor terrace and Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard.
