FF Coppola's Hotel in Italy
According to WSJ, "there is something about waking up in Sofia Coppola's bedroom at the Palazzo Margherita that makes one feel rather like a princess. The walls and high ceilings are painted with golden trompe l'oeil trellising and faux marble, tall doors with long white curtains open onto a terrace and a walled garden below, and the bed is enormous. It is even lovelier once the chambermaids have been through, leaving behind a haze of citrusy Acqua di Parma.
Located in the lively working town of Bernalda, in Southern Italy, the palazzo is the fifth and most luxurious in a collection of hotels owned by Francis Ford Coppola. It represents a homecoming, of sorts, for the multifaceted filmmaker, whose grandfather immigrated to America from there in 1904."
Bernalda is situated South of Puglia and North of Calabria on the South Eastern coast of Italy. Sofia and her husband were married in this small, rustic town.
