In a small hilltop town in Southern Italy, Francis Ford Coppola’s Palazzo Margherita sits nestled  just twenty minutes from pristine, white-sand beaches. The cosy, luxurious hotel that the director bought in 2004 has been created to evoke an authentic Italian atmosphere with tiled floors (made from original marble) and Moroccan and Baroque-inspired hand-painted fresco ceilings. Coppola believed that it was a crime that people did not know about this beautiful area, famous for its ancient caves, historic houses and beaches, and hopes he can help make a name for the town with his latest venture.
