George Clooney said once that this villa “changed my life in a very pleasant and unexpected way…I realized how beautiful life was in Italy and how it really helped calm me and not feel so pressured.”  Lastly, the actor actually owns a total of four villas in the area of Lake Come and has even become an honorary citizen of the small lakeside town and sits on the committee for the defence of the integrity of the banks of the lake.
