A good movie is like a two-hour vacation. But now, after winning six Oscars, director Francis Ford Coppola is making his immersive experiences last a bit longer.

The famous filmmaker is now behind “The Family Coppola Hideaways,” a collection of luxurious getaways in Belize, Guatemala, Italy, and Argentina. The family has built up an impressive portfolio of high-end retreats, including a private island in the Caribbean, a 19th-century estate in southern Italy, and a stylish pied-a-terre in Buenos Aires.

Each of the vacation experiences comes packaged like a film set. Not only do you have a stunning backdrop, it comes equipped with staff. On Coral Caye, the private island 25 minutes off the coast of mainland Belize, staff will prepare all meals, with special attention on fresh seafood. You can explore the island on a fishing tour, relax with a private massage, or just unwind on the sandy beaches. There is, of course, a full entertainment system, should you wish to screen any films.

If you can’t decide which of the luxurious Coppola retreats you would most like to experience, it’s possible to book a sampler. The seven-night “Coppola Vacation Itinerary” includes two nights at La Lancha’s lakefront in Guatemala, two nights in the mountains at Belize’s Blancaneaux, and three nights on the Caribbean Sea at the Turtle Inn in Belize (starting at $4,372 per person).

And, to help you book your Coppola vacation more quickly, the family has even rolled out a reward program. You’ll be able to rack up points for purchasing Coppola wine and get rewarded with perks at Coppola restaurants and getaways. The Coppola rewards are so enticing, it should dissuade you from ever going against the family.
