Airbnb Lists Stylish Lake Como Abode Made Famous by ‘House of Gucci’
These 16th century digs in Lake Como make for a lavish villa vacation, with Airbnb taking reservations for the House of Gucci backdrop for one lucky guest later this spring.
As House of Gucci rolls into theatres, Lady Gaga and Adam Driver are captivating hearts, and our attention, by depicting Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci respectively. The film will garner its attention, but for now, it is the Lake Como Villa that seems to be hogging the spotlight.
If anybody watches the film eyeing the locale, they could be the one lucky person to get the place for $1,125. The availability is set to remain open for just one overnight stay via Airbnb.
The residence reflects Aldo Gucci’s home in the silver screen production set around the renowned Lake Como. A wonderful wide shot of the home’s exterior shows up within the first fifteen seconds of the film’s trailer – for many viewers, it is love at first sight.
House of Gucci is inspired by the unbelievable narrative of the emblematic family behind the Gucci fashion house. The story covers over thirty years of happenings with highs and lows, love, revenge, and, in the end, an unforeseen murder. Gucci was chairman from 1953 to 1986.
The MGM Studios production depicts the story of “A legacy worth killing for.” Starring Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, and Jeremy Irons, the film debuted on the 24th of November. Ridley Scott directed the movie. It is based on a book by Sara Gay Forden.
In real life, the house is called Villa Balbiano. In fact, it is even rumored to be one of the biggest homes on Lake Como. It was built for an Italian cardinal, Tolomeo Gallio, around the end of the 16th century. Later, another cardinal took possession of the place and hosted many banquets.
The party atmosphere still haunts the grounds thanks to centuries-old frescoes throughout the abode. Some were painted by brothers Giovanni Battista Recchi and Giovanni Paolo Recchi. Others were done by Agostino Silva. Many furnishings came straight from Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
In the home, there are six suites (all designed by the French architect Jacques Garcia). There’s also a boathouse and private pier to get in touch with nature. Others may prefer to take a dip in the pool, though.
The Airbnb host will make the Italian villa available for just one night – March 30, 2022. The limit for occupancy is two guests. Bookings open on December 6th at 12 pm EST. Save the date!
