Surrounded by a lush green landscape, tucked away down a long, grass-covered drive, the romantic, 14-bedroom estate (dubbed “Villa Albergoni” IRL) was reportedly a fortress before it was converted into a family home. While adapted to a period-appropriate set for the film (the story takes place in 1983), the home’s well-worn Italian character and understated grandeur lend a timeless appeal to the now-iconic estate.
Spectacular details await inside—including ornate frescoed ceilings, terrazzo floors, cloth covered walls, and grand chandeliers—and are reason enough to splurge on the charming, 15,00-square-foot house, not even taking into account its silver screen pedigree.
Likewise, enormous stone fireplaces make a noble appearance in just about every room. During filming, layered vintage rugs, velvet furnishings, and messy stacks of books introduced a sense of coziness to the impressive living and dining areas.
When it came to transforming the home, interior designer Violante Visconti di Modrone scoured antique stores for vintage furniture and art, and filled the rooms with sumptuous textiles to set a warm, well-loved tone throughout. Though Villa Albergoni’s once-stylish interiors existed only within the timeline of production, the estate’s next real-life owners might want to consider picking up some of Modrone’s effortless styling tips.
Call Me By Your Name is nominated for four Academy Awards this year, thanks to a slew of stellar performances and, of course, a spot-on design team and crew. There’s no doubt that the swoon-worthy villa is worthy of the Oscars—the real question is, are we worthy of it?
