Comments

Starting from €233.00 per nightBook or Check Availability

Villa with bizarre construction and setting for a James Bond movie. Available for rent by individual apartments. Bizarre castle in neo-medieval style which was planned by Adolfo and Gino Coppedè and completed in 1921. It was built where a previous construction had once stood, with a particular, eclectic style. It is shaped like a medieval, renaissance castle with inserted motifs of the liberty period. It is structured around two towers, one of which is on a deep cliff over the lake, the other facing the hills. In 1940, the villa became the property of Counts Gerli.

Villa La Gaeta and James Bond

James Bond has been here too. Among the films that used San Siro as a location, the most important is without doubt "Casino Royale" by Martin Campbell (2006). In his first mission as "007" Daniel Craig discovers that the baddle in the film, Mr White (Jesper Christensen), is staying on Lake Como and confronts him there in the final, decisive duel. Mr White’s hideaway is Villa La Gaeta, wich was built in 1921 for the Ambrosoli family of industrialists on a promontory that stretches out into the lake and from wich it takes its name. Bond surprises Mr White when he gets out of the car to enter his villa. He wounds his leg with a pistol shot and while his adversary is trying to drag himself to the door, 007 waits for him at the top of the speps, where he introduces himself with his famous catchphrase: " My name is Bond, James Bond".
