Anyone who saw Luca Guadagnino’s Oscar-nominated film Call Me by Your Name likely left with unforgettable, beautiful images stuck in their head — like Armie Hammer awkwardly dancing, Timothée Chalamet on the piano and a charmingly disheveled Italian villa complete with peach trees. Much has been written about the dreamy country retreat, called Villa Albergoni — a run-down estate in Lombardy that dates back to the 17th century.

In the movie, Villa Albergoni served as the summer home for a history professor and his family, with Chalamet as the professor’s Bach-playing teenage son, Elio, who becomes smitten with Hammer, portraying a (gorgeous) American research assistant named Oliver, who lives at the villa with the family for the summer. The coming-of-age story is set in a backdrop ripe for romance, and it would come as no surprise if Italy saw a boost in tourism from the film.

But if a trip doesn’t cut it — and should you have $2.1 million (give or take a few Euro) to spare — the “artfully dilapidated” 14-room villa can be yours.

Villa Albergoni was originally constructed as a fortress before it was converted into a home in the 17th century.

The property was recently listed on Home & Loft for €1.7million (about $2.1 million) and according to the listing, the villa holds 14 bedrooms and seven bathrooms; it’s located in Moscazzano, a small town with fewer than 1,000 people, about an hour outside of Milan. The entire estate encompasses about 15,000 square feet and includes terrazzo floors, multiple (massive) fireplaces, vaulted ceilings — and sits on about five acres of land to boot.

“I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house,” Guadagnino told Architectural Digest. “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.”

In addition to critical acclaim and an envious locale, Call Me by Your Name is up for four Academy Awards this year, including best picture, best actor, best original song and best adapted screenplay.
