"Villa Gaeta, The Home As Seen In The Finale Of James Bond's 007 Casino Royale"
A sumptuous home located in historic Villa Gaeta was the setting for the final scene of 007's Casino Royale. The property is steeped in style and history with quality and attention to detail both inside and out. The home is the principal and largest of all the properties at this residence located over three levels and features four bedrooms and bathrooms with ample space and privacy for friends and families. The 180-degree panoramic lake views really are a sight to behold from both inside the home or outside on the terraces and balcony where you can dine alfresco and take in the vista. Air conditioning has also been added in winter of 2022 and available in many rooms where the temperature is warmer in summer and a cooler climate is called for. The property benefits from private parking with its own garage and use of a secluded private beach to access the lake available exclusively to guests of this home and the residence at Villa Gaeta as well as boasting its very own boat moorings.
The home exudes quality and luxury at every turn. From the mosaic floors, frescoes, pillars and painted ceilings in the entrance of the original grand villa to the 180-degree lake views from your private terrace and balcony, the apartment offers a real sense of style with attention to detail and quality fixtures and fittings at every turn. The apartment is perched directly overlooking the lake and offers such luxuries as private boat mooring and access to the beach available exclusively for owners here at this residence only. Little wonder the James Bond franchise chose the villa, stairs and exterior to shoot the finale for Daniel Craig's first adventure as 007 in Casino Royale.
The apartment itself is completely private and whilst there are other homes at this villa this is the principal and most prestigious apartment in the residence.
The home is located over three levels. The terrace with alfresco dining and lounging offers ample space and privacy to soak up the atmosphere and splendid vista. Inside the home you will find a state-of-the-art kitchen with all mod cons and all the facilities you would associate from a home of this quality including interior dining facilities and a spacious, comfy sofa to relax upon. Two of the bedrooms are located on this floor as well as an additional service W.C. A laundry room with washer and dryer is conveniently housed on this floor.
The spacious master double bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with shower and wc a plus sofa bed with 2 single beds next to lake view terrace which you can directly access from this bedroom. An electronic ceiling fan is included in this bedroom positioned with greater shade.
A second air conditioned double room with a private lake view terrace is also located on the entry level floor with bath, shower and wc.
Stairs to the first floor give access to an additional living room, ideal for families or friends sharing the home who require additional privacy. This first floor includes a large sofa, dining facilities and kitchen is located with access to the huge lake view balcony where you can also dine and take in the 180-degree lake view. The first floor features a double bedroom plus bathroom with shower and wc is located directly next to this bedroom. This bedroom boasts a splendid lake view and features air conditioning.

Outside you have access to boat mooring, a private garage, use of the communal gardens, pool (located above the residence) and grounds as well as the beach for sunbathing and direct access to the lake.
