George Clooney Fell in Love with his “Piece of Paradise” an 18th Century Italian Villa at Lake Como – with Old World Charm and Peaceful Seclusion

George Clooney fell in love with the 18th Century villa with its old world charm and peaceful seclusion, and paid $7 million for it. As there was a lot of restoration work to be done, Clooney also bought the nearby Villa Margherita in 2005, which was immediately habitable. Lake Como is one of the jewels of northern Italy, a crystal clear, tranquil glacial lake surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation and overlooked by tall snow capped mountain peaks. Just a half hour’s drive from Milan, Lake Como has long been a favorite spot for Europe’s rich and famous.

Residents are growing fond of George, and Laglio Mayor Guiseppe Mantero is a huge fan, has said that Clooney has shown himself to be an “an honorable man”.

Having one of the world’s biggest Hollywood stars on your doorstep does create problems, especially when the paparazzi are swarming all over the place to get shots of the star in residence, but it has positive benefits too. Local traders like the fresh interest in Lake Como that Clooney has stirred, and the resulting improvement in business. Clooney’s legendary kindness has shown itself in many ways, among them a donation ten specially equipped scooters to Rome’s Emergency Services Unit.

Laglio locals are getting used to the quiet, self effacing star in their midst, and report that he is often to be found helping grandmothers with their shopping, or shooting basketball with the local youngsters.

Described as “good and kind” and “a good person”, Clooney has shown himself determined to be accepted into his new community. He is learning to speak Italian from language CDs, which he laughingly says will “take an eternity!”
