It’s also where his daughter, director Sofia Coppola, was married, amidst its pillared gardens, citrus trees and lavishly ornate interior tiling. The highlights? The Santa Maria Novella bathroom products, the elegant poolside bar, and great beaches just 20 minutes away.
Best for: Lovers of Italian art house cinema – there’s an extensive DVD library. From €780; coppolaresorts.
