A remodeled 120-year-old palazzo is now an intimate nine-room resort, the Palazzo Margherita, which opened March 1 in the Southern Italian town of Bernalda. The hotel is decorated with hand-painted fresco ceilings and marble floors dating to the 1800s and restored to their original luster, while furniture pieces by French designer Jacques Grange offer bits of Moroccan and Baroque flair. Charming Juliet balconies and large terraces face a private courtyard with fountains, a secluded pool, and lush private gardens. Staying true to its heritage, the hotel serves homemade-style Italian cuisine in its intimate restaurant kitchen and shows Italian movies and documentaries nightly in the salon.
