George Clooney Reportedly Bans the Sussexes from His New French Property and Lists Lake Como Villa Due to Privacy Concerns.
George Clooney has decided to part ways with his beloved Lake Como villa, a property he has owned for 21 years. The 62-year-old actor recently listed The Villa with a Milan-based agency, ending years of speculation about the sale of the iconic property. While there were past reports falsely claiming he was selling, real estate agent Yasmin Basil confirmed that this time it’s indeed true.

Lake Como holds sentimental value for Clooney, as it’s where he met his wife, Amal Clooney, in 2013 during a dinner party with mutual friends. However, sources suggest that George’s decision to sell was driven by a desire for increased privacy. Over the years, the home’s security and privacy were compromised, reportedly due to a visit from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018.

The Sussexes’ visit to the Lake Como Villa was part of their busy summer itinerary, during which they spent time with George and Amal Clooney. The Clooneys are known for hosting Hollywood royalty at their stunning estate, having previously welcomed guests like Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.

Rumors began to circulate that Meghan Markle was snooping around the house during her visit, including reportedly entering George Clooney’s room. These rumors raised concerns about privacy and security. While it’s unclear who may have leaked information about the visit, Meghan faced suspicion due to previous rumors of items going missing after her visits.

In response to these concerns, the Clooneys purchased a new property in France. However, it appears they haven’t extended an invitation to Meghan and Harry to visit their new home. George Clooney cited a desire for more privacy and expressed frustration about his activities being leaked, making it clear he values discretion.

Clooney’s new hideaway in France is a magnificent 18th-century renovated country home set on 170 hectares of land, complete with vineyards and olive groves. The historic house is located near fellow Hollywood star Brad Pitt’s Château Miraval in Correns, making them neighbors in Europe.

The new property boasts scenic vines, blue shutters on its large windows, and ample parking. Guests visiting will be required to seek the host’s permission before posting any photos, ensuring privacy. The mansion is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and features a smaller house for a caretaker, as well as a private olive grove.

Inside, the home offers spacious rooms, including a large sitting area with a built-in bookcase and several sofas, multiple bedrooms, and a generously sized kitchen. The Clooneys will have plenty of space to entertain and enjoy sweeping views from the picturesque estate.
