Hotel of the week: Palazzo Margherita, Bernalda, Italy

In spite of its impressive pedigree, Francis Ford Coppola’s hotel feels “like an Italian home away from home.”

Francis Ford Coppola’s hotel feels, despite its impressive pedigree, “like an Italian home away from home,” said Valerie Waterhouse in Travel + Leisure. Built in 1892 for a powerful family, the palazzo sits on a hill in a picturesque southern Italian town and is easily the star of any stay. Its “impeccable interiors” feature hand-painted frescoed ceilings, marble and tile floors, and numerous chandeliers. Your most difficult decision is where to dine—in the “fountain-filled garden,” the courtyard, the eat-in kitchen, or your enormous private room, one of only nine.
