You can now rent Villa Balbiano from House of Gucci on Airbnb

The resplendent 16th century palace – the home of the Gucci family patriarch Aldo Gucci in the upcoming film Gucci House – can be rented on Airbnb for an ostentatious night

It’s not just the costumes in Gucci House that tingled our aesthetic impulses, but so will the locations of the upcoming film directed by Ridley Scott. The film’s cast, which includes Adam Driver as Gucci heir Maurizio Gucci and Lady Gaga as murderous ex-wife Patrizia Reggiano, move from one ostentatious scene to another, from the ski slopes. from Cortina to the streets of Gucci’s hometown of Florence, from Rome to St. Moritz. Nothing is more majestic than Villa Balbiano, the 18th-century palace on the sublime west shore of Lake Como, and the imaginary home of Gucci family patriarch Aldo Gucci, president of Gucci and eldest son of the founder of the house , Guccio Gucci, who created the then leather goods brand in 1921.

You too can feel right at home in a lavish setting, located in one of Italy’s most sought-after luxury destinations, as Villa Balbiano is now available for rent through Airbnb. The palace – which is one of the largest private residences on Lake Como – once belonged to Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio and includes six extravagant suites, designed by famous French decorator Jacques Garcia. Exquisite gardens, bordered by manicured lawns and ornate fountains, were honored by the British Society of Garden Designers Awards (for historic restoration) in 2017. Think of the original trompe-l’oeil frescoes by brothers Recchi and Agostino Silva, with gilded marble inlays, velvet furniture, crystal upholstery and chandeliers, and rooms adorned with works of art from Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
