Fancy waking up in one of the stunning filming locations for the film of the moment, House of Gucci? Now’s your chance…

Where Is House Of Gucci Filmed?

Alongside epic styling and a star-studded cast, Villa Balbiano promises to be one of the most talked about aspects of Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated House of Gucci. The extraordinary Italian estate, which plays home to Aldo Gucci (son of the fashion house founder Guccio Gucci) in the film, is now up for grabs on Airbnb – for one night only.

Branded an ‘awe-inspiring Italian jewel’, Villa Balbiano certainly befits a Gucci-esque resident with its sumptuous suites, opulent furnishings, and breath-taking scenery. Also boasting a rich history, the property dates back to the 16th century, when it was home to the Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. The villa was later enjoyed by Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini as a space to host grand festivals and banquets, as well as an impressive art collection.

Retaining all of its former glamour and charm, Villa Balbiano is one of Lake Como’s largest private residences, boasting spectacular views of the water. Other highlights include an outdoor swimming pool, private pier, and six luxurious suites (curated by French designer Jacques Garcia). The gardens – home to an array of palatial statues and fountains – are said to have been distinguished by the British Society of Garden Designers and are one of the estate’s finest features.

The imposing interiors, however, are worthy of praise too, comprising an array of lavish furniture and historic ‘objets d’art’ – many of which have been sourced from auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
