If you’re like me, once you see a movie you love, you have to know everything about it. Where was it filmed, what are the reviews, what symbolism did I miss, etc. In this case, I’ve got three words: location, location, location. In the recent film adaptation of Call Me By Your Name, the story’s setting plays the leading role.

For those of you who have seen the movie or read the book, you understand the passion that begins to ignite between Elio and Oliver. Feelings blossom under the sun and how could you blame them? After all, it takes place around their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. That in itself was breathtaking. And if you totally fell for the earthy presence the house brought to the film, it can now be yours. For a sum of course.

The Italian beauty, which looks like something out of Romeo and Juliet, has just been put on House&Loft for *drumroll* $2.7 million dollars. Well there goes my chance, but there are plenty of people in the market for it, including the film’s director Luca Guadagnino, who fell in love with the property long before filming. “I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house.”
Yeah, yeah, I’ve had dreams about owning a villa with fourteen bedrooms and seven bathrooms all located in a small countryside town with less than 1,000 people too. If you’re not familiar, check out these pics for a little temptation.

This place is pure magic even for the non-believers. Guadagnino obviously did his work right because Call Me By Your Name is up for four Oscars this year including best picture. Watch the movie. The story is rich and the exquisite setting is what the Italians would call bellissima.
