Palazzo Margherita in total features 7 suites and 2 garden rooms, originally built at the end of the 19th century. It is situated in Bernalda, a small hilltop village in Matera province in Basilicata in the South of Italy. Bernalda was the birthplace of Agostino Coppola, grandfather of the famous director and producer Francis Ford Coppola. Francis purchased the Palazzo in 2004 with the desire to transform it into a small, luxurious Italian boutique hotel, believing it was time to introduce visitors to this stunning and still undiscovered region. The Palazzo boutique hotel has been completely restored by Francis Ford Coppola and acclaimed French designer Jacques Grange, creating a luxurious, authentically Italian experience ushering guests into a private world of style, comfort and luxury.
All suites and garden rooms are individually designed. Beautiful tiled floors, hand-painted fresco ceilings, tasteful furniture, fabrics of high quality in combination with state-of-the-art amenities underline the elegant and stylish atmosphere of the Palazzo. Palazzo Margherita is surrounded by an enchanting historical garden (protected by the Italian Culture Heritage Department) with flowers, herbs and fruit trees, offering various possibilities of retreat. The pool area is equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas, dressing room and pool bar. The salon occasionally hosts concerts and live performances. Upon request it becomes a professional cinema with professional-quality sound and projection, and a vast database of movies, including Francis's personally-curated collection of Italian classics. 
The Palazzo offers a shuttle service to a close by private area of a beach club, where guests can rent sun loungers, umbrellas or a gazebo.
The Palazzo's location is ideal to visit the interesting sights of Matera (UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture for 2019), famous for its ancients dwellings, known as Sassi, magnificent landscapes, historical villages and beautiful long sandy beaches.
