First built in 1892, the block-long palazzo embodies Italian elegance. The interior is styled with tiled floors and hand-painted fresco ceilings with a taste of Moroccan and Baroque flair. The luxurious boutique hotel has seven large suites and two garden rooms. Each is a work of art and features a palatial bathroom, which faces the charming gardens and a secluded swimming pool. The entire Coppola family collaborated with Grange in contributing personal details to individual rooms, creating an intimate atmosphere of a private home.
"I never initially dreamed of opening a resort in Italy, let alone in the town of my grandfather Agostino Coppola. Yet when I purchased and designed the now Palazzo Margherita for friends and family to call home in Italy, I knew I needed to extend the property and surrounding village of 'Bernalda bella' to my guest as well."
