Who doesn’t know George Clooney today? The American actor is one of the most famous actors worldwide and has recently worked in another movie currently in theaters: ‘Ticket to Paradise. As a multi-millionaire, the interpreter has acquired more than one mansion, but one of the best, at least from our point of view mansion but one of the best, at least from our point of view, is the villa he bought in Italy, next to Lake Como. Another celebrity who has a house in the transalpine country is the legendary ex-footballer, David Beckham.
The spectacular house that George Clooney bought in Como, a beautiful city in northern Italy, has a name: ‘Villa Oleandra’. It is a villa that dates back to 1720, so its walls contain much of the town’s history. Below, we will tell you all the details about this fantastic property.
The exterior of ‘Villa Oleandra’: George Clooney’s luxury Italian estate
This villa is surrounded by a garden full of colorful plants and flowers that decorate the outdoor area and by high hedges that preserve the privacy of its residents (in this case, George Clooney and his family or friends). The best this house has to offer, and by far, are the spectacular views of the Alps and Lago di Como, a natural Italian paradise that, if you want to visit on your own, it will take about three days to discover all it has to offer.
The U.S. actor also has several spaces for practicing different sports and recreational activities, such as a tennis court, a gym, and special outdoor circuits for running and exercising… George Clooney loves to take care of himself to stay in shape, and the truth is that at 61, he can boast an enviable figure even for men younger than him.
