Some people are so innately creative, their talents don't stop at just one thing. Sofia and Francis Ford Coppolas are two such aesthetes. If making successful movies wasn't enough, now they're venturing into hotels – and what sublime hotels they are!
The latest project is Palazzo Margherita, a magnificent, magical painted palace set in its own lush gardens in southern Italy, in a town that was the birthplace of Coppola's grandfather. The decor was a combined effort between Coppola (is there no end to this director's talents?) and the well-known French designer Jacques Grange.
There are Baroque, inspired hand-painted fresco ceilings, exotic tiled floors and rooms decorated with understated Italian glamour.
It is beautiful. Just beautiful. No wonder Sofia chose the setting for her wedding last year.
