I love my job.
I get to eat, travel and write about it. Life is good.
But when an editor asks me if I want to go stay in Francis Ford Coppola’s new luxury hotel in Basilicata, even I have trouble believing I do this for a living.
The hotel is Palazzo Margherita, and I’d been hearing about it ever since Coppola had bought the property about 6 years ago. First it was going to be a private villa, then a hotel.
The reason I got to go down was so that I could check it out for Travel & Leisure’s annual It List. Of course it made the grade.
And while there are better photographs of Palazzo Margherita all over the place, here are a few of mine.
