Villa House of Gucci now on Airbnb
Between Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, Jared Leto and Al Pacino, Gucci House has a lot of star power, but the real stage thief isn’t an actor at all – it’s the fabulous Italian decor, including Villa Balbiano. The house, which belongs to Al Pacino’s character Aldo Gucci, in the film that hits theaters today, is a magnificent Lake Como residence that was built in the 16th century. From now on, the mansion will be open for booking on Airbnb for a special one-night stay in March 2022.
The six-bedroom, six-bathroom villa is one of the largest private residences on Lake Como and takes full advantage of all that space with a host of unique decorations sourced from Christie’s and Sotheby’s. 17th-century frescoes can be found throughout the house, but even the relatively understated plaster walls are stunning. The luxurious atmosphere continues through the marble bathrooms with gold mirrors and accents and at least one deep soaking tub for maximum relaxation.
It’s easy enough to get carried away by the beauty of the interiors filled with antiques, but the exterior of the property also has a lot to offer. Its location on Lake Como, along with the accompanying private jetty and boathouse, give guests exclusive access to one of Italy’s largest lakes. The impressive gardens of the property – where, in the film, Maurizio Gucci (Driver) and his new wife Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga) reconnect with the Gucci family at an eccentric Aldo birthday party – were honored by the British Society of Garden Designers and surround the fountains and a swimming pool.
