You Can Actually Stay at the Italian Villas in Succession

As the series finale of Succession approaches on Sunday, May 28th the HBO comedy-drama has been nothing short of sensational. The show has received wide critical acclaim for the writing, acting, directing and musical score. Although it feels like viewers are approaching the end of the Roy empire, there is a way to experience a day in the life of the media tycoon after the series ends. You can arrange a stay at one of the palatial mansions that hosted the Roy family during their eventful trip to Italy.

To find and rent the villas as filming locations, the producers of the show used luxury travel consultant Emily FitzRoy, who is the founder of the bespoke travel and party planning company, Bellini Travel. She worked with the Succession team to find all of the homes, some of which had never previously allowed film crews on the premises.

At the end of season three, a jaw-dropping mansion served as the backdrop to Caroline Collingwood’s wedding and caught the eye of many viewers, suggesting that streaming shows are impacting where people are traveling. Villa Cetinale is a 17th-century Baroque estate not far from Siena in Tuscany. The estate consists of three luxurious and beautiful properties which are all available for private rental; Villa Cetinale, La Cerbaia, and Casa Fabbri.

Villa La Cassinella is one of the most magnificent properties seen on the show and is settled on the shores of Lake Como and only accessible by boat. The gorgeous waterfront property has the best of everything; it can accommodate a full house of 17 guests, complete with a main residence with an infinity swimming pool, gym, cinema, and even an additional detached terrace house. 

If you’ve ever traveled through Val d’Orcia in Tuscany then it’s easy to pick out the superstar of the filming locations. La Foce is nothing short of enchanting. The Garden of La Foce is considered one of Italy’s most beautiful private gardens and was created to enhance the Renaissance house and showcase the incredible view over the valley.
