Star Stay

You might not have seen many pictures of hip film director Sophia Coppola's Italian wedding last year, but now you can honeymoon where it all happened at the gorgeous Palazzo Margherita, which is now open to guests.

MORE HONEYMOON IDEAS

Part of her father Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola's collection of celeb-friendly resorts ( Reese Witherspoon honeymooned at his Belize hideaway Turtle Inn), this 19th century palazzo is hidden away in the Italian town of Bernalda - right on the southerly sole of the country's boot.

With just nine suitably palatial rooms (think graphically tiled floors, Moorish influences meet classical Italian Baroque style and beautiful frescoed ceilings) you'll feel more house guest, than hotel guest.

By day laze by the secluded pool, learn to make authentic Italian fare in the Palazzo's large eat-in kitchen (cooking lessons are included in the room rate) or explore the town and pose at one of its beach clubs. Come evening dine al fresco in the romantic courtyard before cosying up in the Salon which transforms into a state-of-the-art screening room showing Italian classics from Coppola's personally-curated collection.
