Europeans take their luxury pretty seriously. I mean, look at this; you don’t even have to go outside to take a picture of something worth getting a memory of. I’m curious as to whether all those shiny parts in the door and all over the walls are actually gold or just some other sort of reflective material; I don’t think I’d be surprised no matter what turned up here. This is an image of the inside of Chateau de Villette; originally built in the 17th century, it’s got 185 acres of land and its own private chapel, but that’s probably not the way you’ll know it best. No, this estate, which is actually for rent if you’re willing to pay more than seven thousand Euros a night, is the very same location featured in the film version of The Da Vinci Code. Who says you can’t go to where the filming takes place?
Protip: It has fifteen bedrooms. Bring along a whole bunch of friends to split the payment, and you might actually be able to bring it down to a reasonable price; two or three hundred Euros a night isn’t bad for this kind of luxury even among the nicest villas for rent, and that’s probably the only way you’ll ever be able to afford it. I mean, at this price, it’s practically an industry all by itself.
I’m going to assume this is some kind of language-based joke. What you’re looking at here is the lovely lawn, fabulous buildings, and surrounding forest area of Villa Borgois. This is an Italy villa whose name is disturbingly similar to bourgeois… or, in other words, the social middle class. This is made worse by the fact that it was built by Grand Duke Ferdinando I de' Medici as one of twelve hunting lodges, and it’s a lot fancier on the inside than it seems from here. Take a look.
This is the inside of Villa Bourgeo… I mean, Borgois. If this is middle class, I’d love to see what would be suitable for the Queen of England. Just out of curiosity, you know? I mean, you could probably buy a house with just the things in this image…
I’m not really sure if this place, Villa Maniero, is trying to be a house or a castle. I mean, is that some kind of house-hat or something? Framed by those two really tall trees in the back? This is a really nice walkway, though, even if I probably wouldn’t want to walk up and down it every single day to get the mail. I’ll say this for Europe, though: They sure do like nice-looking homes.
