Palazzo Margherita

Bernalda, Basilicata, Italy
Sleeps 25:  $7,379 - $11,440 / night
  • 9 Bedrooms

  • 9 Bathrooms

    (9 Ensuite)

  • Pool

Discover the cuisine, wines and history of the Basilicata region at the luxurious Palazzo Margherita. Set in the village of Bernalda, the well-preserved villa is close to the region’s white-sand beaches and the famed Sassi caves. The property was recently renovated by the Coppola family with decorator Jacques Grange, imbuing its luxurious traditional interiors with modern style.

Start each day of your stay with an included breakfast, then head out to read in the courtyard garden, lounge under an umbrella on the terrace by the pool or sip a mimosa at the al-fresco bar. Have dinner at one of the outdoor tables, then finish the evening in the media room. Thanks to its recent renovation, the villa has Apple TV, iPod docks and Wi-Fi. The property also has its own restaurant and bar, which are open to the public but separate from the house.

Traditional architecture, lush gardens and a few modern furnishings give the villa the feel of a grand old estate brought back to life. In the media room, a vaulted ceiling with ornate moldings speaks to the home’s past, while striped wallpaper in neutral tones is a subtly contemporary touch. The eat-in kitchen has a dramatically arched stone ceiling and a long, welcoming table with bistro-style chairs.

The nine suite-style bedrooms are each decorated with their own scheme and each have en-suite bathrooms, creating private retreats within the palazzo. There are three bedrooms with queen beds on the garden level; all three have garden access and one has a sitting area. Upstairs, there are six bedrooms with king beds, all of which have access to either a Juliet balcony, private balcony or furnished terrace. One upstairs bedroom has a private staircase leading to a sleeping loft with a single bed, and additional rollaway beds are also available.

From Palazzo Margherita’s location in Bernalda, it’s a 20-minute drive to several white-sand beaches on the Ionian Sea, like the Pisticci Scalo Lido beach, 11 miles away. Get a glimpse of the area’s history at the Greek Temple of Hera in Metaponto, 7 miles away, or the Crypt of the Original Sin, 15.5 miles away. If you’re arriving by private jet, fly into Pisticci-Enrico Mattei Airport, 11 miles away, or Taranto-Grottaglie Marcello Arlotta Airport, 47 miles away. If not, the airports of Bari and Brindisi are both 80 miles away.
