A lot of people are talking about House of Gucci right now. You’ve got the Italian-accented Lady Gaga, Adam Driver in oversized 1990s glasses and a lot of haute couture. And then there are the dazzling interiors, too.

The Villa Balbiano is an ostentatious sixteenth-century palazzo by Lake Como and is the countryside retreat patriarch of Aldo Gucci in the movie. It looks lush and very much not like your standard holiday accommodation. But you know what? It could be yours to rent via Airbnb next spring.

The house features six suites designed by acclaimed French designer Jacques Garcia. Inside, you’ll find paintings from Sotheby’s, antiques from Christie’s, delicate golden chandeliers, rich velvet furniture and original seventeenth-century frescoes. The bathroom is decked out in blue marble, and you can sleep on an elaborate baroque bed in the master bedroom.

The outdoor space is gorgeous, too: its restoration even won a British Society of Garden Designers Award. Visitors can wander through ornate manicured gardens, or laze by one of the Renaissance-style fountains. There’s also a vast outdoor pool, plus a private pier and boathouse.

So, fancy making like Patrizia Reggiani and planning a decadent retreat? The house is only available on March 22 next year, with a night’s stay costing a cool £845 ($1,125) – though for that price you’ll get all six suites. Booking opens on December 6 at 5pm (GMT) via Airbnb
