Garden Room Three
Like the other garden room inside our Italian luxury hotel, this one embodies the simple elegance of Italian country house living. Grand barn-like doors that open onto the inner courtyard create a setting that is both sophisticated and rustic. A luxurious bathroom includes a clawfoot bathtub and separate glass shower.
Garden Room Two
An elegant and traditional room that opens directly onto the lush private garden and fountain. It features vaulted ceilings, a large closet, and a writing desk. A beautifully appointed bathroom is highlighted by a clawfoot bathtub beneath a window that overlooks the garden.
Garden Suite One
This suite embodies the elegance of Italian country house style—an airy, traditional room that opens directly onto the courtyard garden and fountain. Situated on the ground floor, it also features a spacious, ensuite sitting room with a floor to ceiling window that heightens the effect of being secluded in one's own private garden. The large bathroom includes a clawfoot bathtub and separate glass shower among its many details.
Suite Eight (Gia)
This romantic suite at our Italian boutique hotel was designed as a gift to Gia Coppola, Francis's first granddaughter. It features a subtle Rococo design with a delicate fresco on the ceiling representing Cupid and Psyche, symbolising good fortune and happy harmony to lovers. A large walk-in closet and separate dressing room add to the dramatic scale. A balcony offers a view of Bernalda's main street and town square, a perfect spot from which to enjoy the spectacle of unhurried, small-town life. A spacious bathroom includes a clawfoot bathtub and separate shower.
Classic Italian décor lends this suite a warm ambiance with a modern touch. A secret back staircase leads to an upstairs loft, whose single bed and sitting room make it an enchanting hideaway for a child, or a perfect private reading room for adults. (It is said that this was the room of the Palazzo's young maid, Palmetta, who had given her heart to the dashing Agostino Coppola.) The room also features a majestic ceiling with a hand-painted restored fresco, and spacious bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and separate shower. A Juliet balcony faces the main street and town square, a perfect spot to enjoy coffee or tea.
Suite Four (Sofia)
Jacques Grange designed this suite of our luxury Italian hideaway in collaboration with Sofia Coppola; its mood is delicate and feminine, with hand-painted frescos evoking a misty summer garden at dawn. A Juliet balcony off the bedroom overlooks the courtyard and the palatial bathroom has a steam shower and a clawfoot bathtub. French doors from the bathroom and bedroom lead to a fully-furnished private terrace that offers a magical view of the garden and fountain.
Suite Nine (Francis)
Integrating subtle elements of North African design—a historical influence in Southern Italy—this picturesque suite has a fully-furnished shared terrace overlooking the garden and courtyard. The style is intended to honour Francis's Tunisian-born grandmother, Maria Zasa, distinguishing it from other luxury hotels in Italy. A striking tiled fireplace and an anteroom with a large writing desk add to the regal splendour of this suite. A luxurious bathroom includes a clawfoot bathtub and separate shower. Walls and high ceilings feature beautifully restored paintings and frescos.
Suite Seven (Roman)
This modernist-inspired suite at our Italian luxury hideaway was designed by Jacques Grange in collaboration with Roman Coppola. Its Art Deco furniture and lighting, elegant slate bathroom, and restored fresco of the same period lend an international flair. It includes a fully-furnished shared terrace for dining or relaxing outdoors as well as a Juliette balcony that opens to the beautiful courtyard below. A lavish bathroom includes a separate shower and clawfoot bathtub.
This majestically proportioned suite pays tribute to Italian décor of the early 20th century, combining simple elegance with bold ornament. A Juliet balcony opens onto the main street and leafy town square. The magnificent ceiling, with a restored, hand-painted fresco, and the spacious bathroom with clawfoot bathtub and separate shower add to the room's comfortable formality.
