"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. 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.

A second 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.

The third floor is accessed by an internal staircase and takes you to the attic atrium level featuring an open plan layout of two single beds and a sofa plus bathroom with shower and wc.

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.

Or, alternatively, sit back and relax, enjoy a glass of wine and good book if you manage to avert your gaze from the majestic lake views that surround the home.

We will be happy to organise a private chef with wine's to match sourced from our favourite italian wineries plus cooking lessons at the home-please ask for details.

Boat hire can be arranged on request as well as tours of the lake on a luxury boat with captain to explore prestigious villa's, dine at one of our favourite lakeside restaurants and visit the many hidden treasures here on Lake Como.

The Absolute best place to stay in Italy!

By Hunter on 01-Jan-2022

The Absolute best place to stay in Italy! The house sits perfectly on an outcropping with an outstanding view of Lake Como and surrounding cities (Menaggio, Bellagio, and Varrena). The villa was in perfect condition with TVs and DVDs for the kids to watch. Equipped with everything you need to cook, clean, and relax. The villa also has a boat pier for use during the summer with incredible views of the mountain ranges. The host was by far the best we have encountered throughout our travels in Europe. Absolutely recommend this location!

The nicest and most unusual property on Lago di Como.

By Andy on 31-Dec-2021

Excellent experience staying at Villa Gaeta. I think it is the nicest and most unusual property on Lago di Como. There were no other resident at the property so we have the whole property to ourselves. The host, Barrie is very helpful on every aspect of our stay, and I have no regrets of staying at this fabulous location. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place.

World class.

By David on 31-Aug-2021

Incredible villa on a great part of Lago di Como. The villa was clearly featured in the James Bond movie, 'Casino Royale' and you should expect a lot of people to come by in their boats to stare or take pictures. Even without its movie-stardom, this is a one of a kind villa that would get lots of attention. Everything in the villa is very high-end and the service provided by Barrie was world class. It is a 100 year old building, so expect it not have great lighting and airflow. You will need a car, although we did walk to Menaggio twice (about 4 km away).
