George Clooney spends his holidays on Lake Como in Italy
Italian lakes offer breathtaking scenery throughout the year. The incomparable charm of Lake Como in northern Italy, bewitched the famous American actor George Clooney. The actor bought Villa Oleandra in 2002, a splendid eighteenth century villa in Laglio, to make it his summer residence. Clooney has a total of four villas in the area of Lake Como. Since then, he became Laglio honorary citizen and he has also joined the committee for the defense of lake banks integrity.
After Clooney buying, Laglio has become one of the most popular destinations on Lake Como. Tourists try to spot some celebrities walking by Villa Oleandra terrace, during their ferry trip around the lake. Among George Clooney guests there are Cindy Crawford, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.
George Clooney celebrated his 54th birthday in his villa on Lake Como. The big party attended many VIP guests, who occupied all Villa Oleandra accommodations and the adjoining Villa Margherita ones.
To protect the stars' privacy from paparazzi and curious, the mayor of Laglio has renewed an ordinance prohibiting getting too close to Villa Oleandra. Transgressors trying to approach the villa by lake with boats and motorboats, will pay fines from 50 to 500 Euros.
