We had stayed at one of the other hotels owned by Coppola in Belize and had a wonderful experience but this beat that by a long shot. What an wonderful job has been done with respect to the interior and exterior. The staff was fabulous and went out of its way to make everyone feel at home. My wife and... More

In late May this year, my partner and I were returning home to London and whilst on the flight from Bari, she had become pensive and distant. I was soon to discover she was suffering from a dose of the post-Palazzo-Margherita blues; the remedy for which is a return visit as soon as possible! We finally managed a return stay,... More

We stayed five nights at the Palazzo. The staff and service are exceptional and will do everything they can to make your visit pleasurable. We felt like we were staying at someone's country home, yet the Palazzo is located in the small city of Bernalda. The food is among the best, if not the very best, we've ever had in... More

Just returned from three nights at Palazzo Margherita. The glowing Trip Advisor reviews are totally accurate. No point in duplicating all the details. After a day of sightseeing, Imagine listening to Vivaldi's Four Seasons at the pool and sipping a glass of wine or watching" La Dolce Vita" (or any one of 75 other movies recommended by Francis Ford Coppola)...

This hotel is simply magical. It is small, but never feels busy, the service is amazing and it is beautiful . We stayed the first night in the honeymoon suite, which was sensational and has the most amazing ceiling. All of the rooms are beautiful and the service is sensational. The most considerate and friendly people, in a beautiful setting... More

In Italy, by law, one can enter the hotel because they are public. Above all if you need a toilet and by law this cannot be stopped. I took a very good coffee in the palazzo Margherita although the prestige of the place is overrated. Nice building potentially nicer internally but I was not able to enter: only the guests... More

We had 2 nights here as part of a trip round the Puglia area, and Bernalda is a very unexceptional town, but the hotel and the service is like being part of the family, the 2nd evening all the guests 14 I think, were invited to dine in a family style around one big table, which worked perfectly with English,...

We stayed for three days at the start of a tour through Basilicata and Puglia and we really didn't want to leave. A truly boutique place (9 rooms) in a beautifully restored palazzo in Bernalda.

Visiting Palazzo Margherita is like stepping into another world...or, seeing as it's owned by Francis Ford Coppola, on to a film set. Bernalda, the town where it's located, is a very ordinary place - unless you had a reason to be there, you wouldn't go. Palazzo Margherita is probably reason enough, if a short break is what you're after. Once... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palazzo Margherita for me is a dream come true. Its magical gardens, the family gathering in the magnificent salon for whatever purpose; celebretions, intimate teas or evenings of films. It is a painted palace, with frescos on its ceilings and walls, palatial rooms with countless details, modern in terms of its systems, music and cinema available like hot and cold running water; yet the patina of its epoch is preserved, and when the children are there, delight is everywhere.Francis Ford Coppola ... more   less
