Has George Sold His Villa

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 08 2011, 02:59

Europe by Eurail is the best way to travel

PARADISO, Italy--I'm sitting in a comfortable seat, looking out at the foothills of the Italian Alps. High on the hilltops the houses are grand, and below them, small terraced vineyards offer the promise of a leisurely glass of wine and some terrific linguine al vongole.

Not long before, Lake Como had sparkled out the window, and though George Clooney is said to have sold his villa there, it's hard not to go by and imagine him and his Hollywood friends getting the best out of life amid one waterside mansion after another and more glamor than most people experience in a lifetime.

But this is not the view from an airplane at 30,000 feet, and everything I'm looking at is not in miniature far below me. It's right at ground level and right in front of me. This is the Milan, Italy to Zurich, Switzerland train, surely one of the most beautiful routes in Europe, a trip that provides the perfect sampling of mountains, lakes, vineyards, rivers, charming hillside houses, quaint valleys, and so much more.

Lake Como, George Clooney sells goodbye Villa Oleandra

The weekly "OGGI": the villa of Laglio switch to a noble family that deals with textile Brianza. The preliminary contract has already been signed.

Milan, July 20, 2010 - The house of Laglio where George Clooney spent the summer of 2003 to pass Besana, Brianza noble family active in business textiles. The weekly said today, on newsstands tomorrow.

Negotiations between Besana and Orcalson, the company owning the property of the plaintiff, was conducted in the study of Milanese lawyer Salvatore D"Avino, and apparently to this day, it would be a good point. The preliminary contract was already signed.

"Today" shows: Clooney"s villa sold to a family Brianza.

COMO - The news of those destined to make noise: after a year of rumors, suspicions, rumors and silence seems this time that George Clooney has really decided to leave his residence on Golden Lake Como.
The revelation comes from the weekly Oggi in newsstands Wednesday, July 21. From the little that has leaked head seems villa Oleandra Laglio - but it is unknown whether the supply can cover the entire sector including Villa Margherita - will go to Besana, Brianza noble family active in business textiles.
Also as was anticipated by one week, the negotiations between the Besana and Orcalson, the company owning the property of the plaintiff, was conducted in the study of Milanese lawyer Salvatore D"Avino and, apparently, is well advanced . The preliminary contract has already been signed.
Clooney bought Villa Oleandra in 2003 by the family of John Heinz, the ketchup and the inventor had turned into a home always open to the world of his Hollywood friends. At Villa Oleandra were also filmed some scenes of Ocean"s Twelve.
The villa then last year forms the backdrop to the great love between the actor and Elisabetta Canalis

Well Robert Pattison has "supposedly" bought in the area so George has a new famous neighbour.

It will not be for this reason that Pattison has bought a house on Lake Como?

A few days of that new, denied that George was going to sell the house....

Pattinson has bought one there? Slowly it's going to look like a mini Hollywood... Is not there more places in the world?

This looks like a new article but it must be old because the in the very last sentence he says:

"L' ex velina sarda, ora che riveste il ruolo ufficiale di Lady Clooney, ha conquistato la sua fetta di notorietà anche oltreoceano, dove Robert la può ammirare, in segreto."

"The former Sardinian velina, now that she is officially Lady Clooney, has reached a piece of popularity even overseas, where Robert can admire her secretely".

This article was written way before the split from "Lord Clooney"!!

The 2010 article is full of inaccuracies. I understand Oceans 12 villa scenes were filmed at Villa Erba in Cernobbio, not George's villa. Not sure how or why these "sold the villa" stories get started.....

Lake Como, Good Bathroom… patchy

The shores of Lake Como are bad, say Malino, but certainly not rewarded for the quality you see. Of 30 coastal resorts of Lake Como, are 12, almost half those who received the black flag, the very prestigious award given by the Schooner Lakes Legambiente, on Saturday presented the results of a week of controls on the two branches of the lake.
The note was assigned to the worst town of Dongo. Regarding water quality, even for the schooner on Lake Como, the situation has improved since last year. Eight, however, the sites with water polluted or heavily polluted, including Cernobbio and Menaggio.
Question arises: is also why George Clooney leaked the idea to sell his dream house?

I don't know the other Villa's name, but you are correct that O12 was not filmed at George's Villa.

Also, the rumors started last year about selling saying that he and EC were looking for other locations together. LOL!
