Hosted in a 19th century historical villa in the town of Bernalda and later transformed in a boutique hotel by The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, Palazzo Margherita is a charming luxury hotel nestled in one of Italy’s hidden gems and just a short drive from picturesque Matera.
Strategically located, this luxury hotel allows daily trips to explore Matera’s celebrated Sassi as well as the coastal region of Puglia, and it offers a daily shuttle service to the local beach. The hotel outdoors features charming gardens, a cosy courtyard and an elegant swimming pool. Evenings will be delighted by tasty dinners in the hotel’s eat-in kitchen with local chefs also arranging cooking classes. The hotel has three cafes: Cinecittà Bar that is a traditional café and pizzeria on Bernalda's main street, Family bar, a private bar and dining spot exclusive for hotel guests, and a pool-side bar.
This luxury boutique hotel in Basilicata hosts 9 rooms and suites finely restored and decorated to the highest standards with the finest materials. The property is still used as a holiday home by the Coppolas and it retains the feeling of a well-loved family home.
