Mansion featured in Lady Gaga movie “House of Gucci” on Airbnb

Now you can rent the House of Gucci too — before it’s available on demand.
The Italian mansion where the likes of Lada Gaga, Adam Driver, Salma Hayek and Jared Leto used to hop around in the just-released movie”House of Gucci” will be available for a one night single stay in March through the apartment rental service Airbnb.
The New York Post reports a night at the Lake Como house known as Villa Balbiano can be booked by one lucky renter on March 30, 2022 for the Gucci-esque price of $1,125 (flight not included).
If you tie the knot, you can stay in the 16th century mansion that has hosted the famous high society – and high-ranking members of the Catholic Church – for dances, banquets and festivals, while in the 18th century it was home to Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini, the Post reports.
The house has a large garden that has been celebrated by the British Society of Garden Designers, a private dock and boathouse on the lake, and an outdoor swimming pool (which we assume will be closed in December).
The interior of the house includes six suites with “lush marble bathrooms,” according to the Post, as well as 17th-century frescoes painted by Agostino Silva and the Recchi brothers.
In the new film, based on Sara Gay Forden’s book, the villa plays the role of the home of the patriarch of the Gucci family, Aldo Gucci (Al Pacino). The film is about the life of Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga), who married into the family and set off a headlong spiral of betrayal, revenge and murder. Driver plays her husband, Maurizio Gucci, in the Ridley Scott-directed drama that also stars Jeremy Irons.
The setting may be spectacular, but the film’s reviews are appalling. The New York Times said it lacks “a strong idea and a credible reason to exist”, while the Message header didn’t mince words, claiming, “Lady Gaga and her terrible move are superficial.” If you’re still interested in watching it, the trailer is embedded below.
The chance to book the house starts at 12 noon on December 6, according to the Airbnb listing.
