A Glimpse at the property
Palazzo Margherita is an intimate and luxurious property in the heart of Bernalda, Basilicata. Located close to the historic town of Matera, this lovingly restored 19th Century Palazzo offers a truly Italian experience, perfect for families or groups.
Once reaching Bernalda, massive wooden doors on the main street swing open to reveal the heart of Palazzo Margherita: the stunning traditional courtyard, the romantic private garden which is protected by the Italian Cultural Heritage Department, and a beautiful swimming pool.
The property itself has seven luxurious suites and two garden rooms, featuring stunning frescos and tiled floors. Each room is equipped with Wi-Fi and high-end television and audio systems. With additional beds, the property can sleep up to 25 guests.
Palazzo Margherita also has an elegant Salon where guests may enjoy a full-screen viewing of classic Italian films, a dine-in Kitchen to watch the chefs at work, as well as a bustling Cafe favoured by the local residents.
The local area is also brimming with history, tradition and sites to explore, from the stunning town of Matera, carved from the rock and now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, to the unique and awe-inspiring Crypt of the Original Sin which is covered in frescoes dating as far back as the 9th Century.
It is no surprise that famous director Francis Ford Coppola has a particular fondness for this area where his grandfather was born and where Italy remains unspoiled and undiscovered, and has since lovingly restored this 19th Century Palazzo with an elegant, stylish and authentic finish. For a truly Italian experience, look no further than this stunning and unique property as your next holiday rental.
