Villa Balbiano was built in the late 16th century and is the home of Al Pacino's character in the film
With Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, Jared Leto and Al Pacino, House of Gucci has plenty of star power, but the real star of the film is not an actor, but the fabulous Italian setting, including Villa Balbiano. The house owned by Al Pacino's character, Aldo Gucci, in the film is a beautiful residence on Lake Como built in the 16th century. Now the villa can be booked through 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 the space with a series of unique decorations purchased at Christie's and Sotheby's. There are 17th-century frescoes throughout the house, but even the relatively low-key plaster walls are stunning. The luxurious atmosphere continues in the marble bathrooms, which feature gilded mirrors and accents, and at least one deep soaking tub for maximum relaxation.
The location on Lake Como and the accompanying private dock with boathouse offer guests exclusive access to one of Italy's largest lakes. The property's stunning gardens - where in the film Maurizio Gucci (Driver) and his new bride Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga) reunite with the Gucci family at an eccentric party for Aldo's birthday - have won awards from the British Society of Garden Designers and surround fountains and a swimming pool.
