In our wanderings to find more on Clooney’s home on Lake Como, we also came across who knows how many listings and images for Richard Branson’s house, also supposedly on Lake Como. Funny, we had never before heard anything anywhere about him owning a house on Lake Como. There’s an excellent chance that we are not as knowledgeable as we would like to think, also there’s a good chance that a guy like Branson also likes some privacy. However, here’s the thing, Branson is one of those super larger than life characters, who is all over the media, Virgin is one of the most well recognized global brands on the planet, Branson’s personal brand through the roof. In media and magazines its endlessly reported, where he lives, what his houses look like, if you can rent them. He owns Necker Island, Kasbah Tamadot, Moskito Island, a small game lodge in Africa, and quite a few others. But he has never mentioned owning a place in Italy, much less on Lake Como.
So, if you’ve been waiting for it, here’s why we love Richard Branson, we came across a post of his from his website “Richard Branson’s Lake Como villa? It’s news to me!” and he basically goes on to say in a cheeky manner that he is not neighbors with Clooney, or anyone else on the lake for that fact. Ha.
Hopefully he does mind us stealing the photo from his website and by the way, whichever villa that is behind him… really nice.
