3. Live Like George Clooney at Villa La Cassinella, Lake Como
How about spending a week at a 19th-century luxurious mansion on Italy’s Lake Como? The gorgeous villa is only accessible by boat, so that should help keep the paparazzi away. It’s secluded but not isolated, and there are many pristine villages to explore in the area should you want to leave the confines of the property. You might just want to stay put, though, as the seven bedroom villa plus guest house is decorated in fine Italian furniture, antiques and European treasures. Enjoy a game on the floodlit tennis court, a few laps in the heated infinity pool tiled in 22-karat gold, a workout in the well-appointed gym or a stroll around the seven acre garden flanked with stately cypress trees. It’s only $188,000 for up to 17 guests.
