celebritiesGeorge Clooney (62 years old) will not sell his estate overlooking Italy’s Lake Como. Earlier this month, a source told Page Six that he had put his luxury villa up for sale, but this appears to be untrue. “It’s a made-up story,” he told People magazine.
“The first I heard about it was when Page Six broke the story. But that’s not true. It’s a made-up story,” the actor confirmed to People. At the beginning of this month, a source told Page Six that Clooney had listed his historic villa, Oleandra. On sale for €100 million. The same source believes it was a “very silent sale, with no advertising and no press.”
This is not the first time a rumor has spread that Clooney wants to sell his Italian villa. In 2010, a source said the actor was considering selling the property due to the serious interest paparazzi brought to the property. In 2015, the rumor mill started turning again. “George loves the area and the people who live there, but he is aware of the attention he receives when he is in town. “He received a huge offer for the villa, and he is considering it,” she told Page Six at the time.

But it turns out that this is not true at all. The 19th-century country building remained in Cluny’s possession for 21 years. The actor received the keys to the villa in 2002, which is surrounded by a narrow garden extending to Lake Como. At the time, he paid 10 million euros to transform it with his wife, Amal, into a home full of love and warmth. Famous friends like Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts visit regularly.
