Have we mentioned that Lake Como is now one of Europe's premier destinations for celebrities wanting style, sophistication and glamour without glitz?
With Lake Como attracting international stars to set up home like George Clooney and whose friends and regular visitors to Lake Como include; David Beckham, Victoria Beckham, Elton John and Tom cruise to name a few, is it any wonder that one of the most used phrases typed into google for Lake Como is actually, 'George Clooney Lake Como House'? The people of Lake Como have taken George Clooney to their hearts and have made him an honorary son of the region.
Lake Como has also been a sought after location ideal for film shoots such as the James Bond film Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig; scenes for this were shot at both Villa del Balbianello and Villa La Gaeta, and the Starwars film Attack of the Clones starring Natalie Portman with scenes shot at Villa del Balbianello.
Other recent Lake Como celebrity visitors include, Liam Gallagher from Oasis, the rock group Stereophonics, David Hasselhof, Sasha Baron Cohen, and various politicians, sports people, and stars of music and film.
Maybe when you are holidaying on Lake Como you may well see or bump into George Clooney as he goes about his business. Unlike many stars, he actually immerses himself in the Italian way of life and we at Bella Como have seen him on many occasions.
