For Just Under $3M, You Could Live Italian-Style In The Call Me By Your Name Villa

Call Me By Your Name, the Oscar-nominated film that swept us all off our feet, wouldn't have been the same without that gorgeous home. Timotheé Chalamet and Armie Hammer running around the villa's grounds (along with a little, uh, interlude by the peach tree) was the ultimate eye candy — especially when you noticed all that beautiful antique furniture that they casually draped themselves over.
If you've dreamed of making your CMBYN dreams come true, and you have around $3 million ($1.7M Euros) to spare, that house can be yours. The Italian villa that serves as the background for Luca Guadagnino's already-beloved film is up for sale, and we've got the drool-worthy interior photos to make you cry — if the movie didn't make you sob enough.

As it turns out, Guadagnino had his eye on the palatial estate for some time. "I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house, he told Architectural Digest. He immediately thought of it when scouting locations for the film. "Once I realized that I couldn't afford it and didn't really want it for my life, I knew where I was going to set the action of the film—this place with faded, aristocratic charm, that a professor and his wife might have inherited but can't quite keep up."
If you have the budget, the official home listing is on House & Loft, in Italian. It has 14 bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and dates back to the 16th century. The estate features a library, charmingly overgrown gardens, marble statues, and original woodwork and painted frescoes that have to be seen to be believed. Click through to see interior photos and swoon along with us.

The estate was originally used as a fortress before it was converted into a residence, and it's easy to see some of its military influence. Never mind that chipped paint — a new coat will have it looking good as new.

Um hello, that wooden door? That brick archway? Homes are just not made like this anymore.

The mosaic marble flooring is also original, and the curved ceiling lets light flow freely throughout the main hallway.

That library. It stole our heart away in the film, and it's making our heart beat just as fast now. Nothing would make us happier than to fill those wood shelves with our favorite books and vinyl records.

Yes, the house comes with chandeliers and original painted frescoes on the ceiling, so you can gaze above and dream of Elio and Oliver.

Rococo-style wooden trim still lives on the walls of the home, as do those painted shelves. The parquet floors are stunning.

Taking care of these grounds would be such a joy — our inner gardener would jump at the chance. No word on if it comes with a peach tree.

The grounds also feature original statues and a welcoming stairway. That wasn't just set dressing for the film.
