Visit 3 of Italy’s Most Iconic Villas on Grand Tour of the South

Palazzo Margherita

The Family Coppola’s Palazzo Margherita partners with La Posta Vecchia in Rome & Villa TreVille on the Amalfi Coast to offer travelers a taste of true Italian luxury!

The Family Coppola Hideaways announced a special promotional partnership between its luxury Italian property, Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, Basilicata, and two other lavish boutique villas in Italy – La Posta Vecchia in Palo Laziale, Rome and Villa TreVille in Positano, Amalfi Coast.

“The Grand Tour of the South” is special itinerary which offers guests the unique opportunity to discover the hidden treasures and unspoiled beauty of southern Italy with a stay in the lap of luxury at these three authentic, glamorous Italian villas brimming with history and all the endemic charm of the Italian South. Travelers who combine a stay at two or all three of these villas will receive a complimentary 3-course lunch for two.

Nestled in the middle of the charming town of Bernalda in Basilicata, Italy, Palazzo Margherita is a true 19th century palazzo built in 1892 by the Margherita family. The town was the birthplace and home to Agostino Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola’s grandfather, who always affectionately referred to it as “Bernalda bella.” The small town holds a special place in the Coppola family history, inspiring Francis to acquire the property in 2005 and completely restore it in collaboration with acclaimed French designer Jacques Grange. Today, the nine-suite Palazzo offers a luxurious yet authentic Italian experience, with vast bedrooms, ornate reception rooms and an inner courtyard opening onto a world of private historical gardens and a swimming pool. Amenities and services available at Palazzo Margherita include cooking classes in the eat-in kitchen, wine tastings, Italian movies in the salon, and trips to local artisans and historic sites, like the nearby ancient city of Matera, the 2019 European Capital of Culture.

La Posta Vecchia

La Posta Vecchia is a five-star luxury hotel located in the coastal town of Palo Laziale, just 40 minutes away from Rome and 20 minutes from Fiumicino Airport. Serving as J. Paul Getty’s sumptuous private villa until the 1980s, the hotel is a blend of new and old and boasts exclusive 18th century décor, breathtaking panoramic views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and immaculately manicured grounds complete with well-preserved ruins that date back to the Roman Empire. Named and decorated by the great master Franco Zeffirelli himself, Villa TreVille is a unique, boutique property set within a spectacular cliff-side estate overlooking the clear blue waters of Positano, one of the jewels of Italy’s fabled Amalfi Coast. It offers a private guest experience that is intimate and discreet with the highest level of service and exclusive access to premium facilities. The property is comprised of sixteen mesmerizing rooms and suites of meticulous detail directly facing Positano and surrounded by lush gardens and secluded terraces nestled among vine-laden bougainvillea, pine trees and ancient tropical plants.
