‘House of Gucci’ villa comes to Airbnb – Robb Report
“House of Gucci” hits theaters today, and if you want to live like Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci (played by Lady Gaga and Adam Driver respectively), you’re in luck: one of the family homes featured in the film is now available for one night via Airbnb for $ 1,125-but only for a lucky booker.
The Grand Residence on Lake Como is the home of Aldo Gucci in the film. Gucci was president of the fashion house from 1953 to 1986; he was the eldest son of founder Guccio Gucci. A wide shot of the front of the house appears in the first 15 seconds of the trailer.
Aside from the Ridley Scott drama, the mansion is known as Villa Balbiano. According to the Airbnb list, this is one of the largest private residences on Lake Como. It was originally built for Tolomeo Gallio, an Italian cardinal, at the end of the 16th century. Angelo Maria Durini, another cardinal, took over the property a century later and used it as a party venue where he hosted many lavish festivals and banquets.
Today, the house is still a remarkable place to live (or to throw an exaggerated party). There are frescoes on the wall which date back to the 17th century by brothers Giovanni Battista Recchi and Giovanni Paolo Recchi, as well as by Agostino Silva. Most of the collector’s furniture and works of art that decorate the residence come from Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
The house has six suites in total, and each was designed by revered French architect Jacques Garcia. Outside there is a swimming pool, private jetty and boathouse for those who want to spend some time on the scenic waters of Lake Como.
The trap ? You will only be able to book the place for one night. The Airbnb host makes the Italian villa available on March 30, 2022, for one guest and one plus one to spend the night in the master suite. Reservations open December 6 at 12 p.m. EST, so if you see “House of Gucci” by then and your heart is set on home, mark your calendar better.
