Built in 1892, Palazzo Margherita, Bernalda, has been lovingly restored to create a luxury boutique hotel. Set in magical gardens, with fresco ceilings and walls, the hotel’s palatial rooms preserve the heritage of the building while also offering a range of modern amenities to ensure guests enjoy a comfortable and indulgent stay.
Guests stay in elegant suites, all of which have a free in-room bar, a high-definition 3D TV, a Blu-ray player and a digital movie collection featuring the best in Italian cinema. For those who like to live in the lap of luxury, the Garden Suite One opens onto the courtyard garden and offers a spacious bedroom and sitting room with floor-to-ceiling windows. Another of the hotel’s most indulgent accommodation options is Suite Four, which features a Juliet balcony, a palatial bathroom with steam shower and a private terrace with views over the garden.
A range of dining options
The Palazzo has a large, welcoming kitchen where guests can watch and learn how traditional Basilicata dishes are prepared, while the Cinecittà Bar is a café and pizzeria where diners eat inside or outside. Don’t miss the chance to visit Garden Grigliata for the barbecues, where grilled seasonal vegetables and succulent meat are prepared for diners to eat al fresco in the garden.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
