Why go see “House of Gucci” when you can live it?
During your stay at the Lake Como-facing property, you can live lavishly in your Gucci finest while enjoying spectacular views and the grandeur of ‘90s Italian opulence.
Dubbed “Villa Balbiano,” the residence was used as the home of patriarch Aldo Gucci, played by Al Pacino, in the movie, which also stars Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani and Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci.
But in reality, the home dates back to the 17th century and was most famously Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini’s residence in the 18th century where he hosted members of the Roman-Catholic Church and high society for festivals, banquets and dances.
During his stay, the Cardinal amassed a large art collection and then bought additional parcels of land to build additional structures on, including a church.
The home will be available for one lucky booker for one overnight stay on March 30, 2022, for $1,125.
Booking opens on Monday, Dec. 6 at 12 p.m. eastern.
Amenities of the home include an extensive garden recognized by the British Society of Garden Designers, an outdoor swimming pool, a private pier and a boathouse.
Interior features include the “finest art and furniture from past centuries,” according to the listing, that include 17th-century frescoes painted by the Recchi brothers and Agostino Silva.
The estate features six suites in the main palazzo which boast opulent marble bathrooms.
