It is difficult to deny that the Clooney's lifestyle is one we are all envious of. The power couple is constantly on the move with Amal's seriously impressive roles as an activist and lawyer and George's multifaceted talents as an actor, producer, writer, and director – as a result, it is not hard to see why the pair have so many properties scattered around the world. 

With some of the most sought-after real estate in places such as Italy, France, and New York up their sleeves, the glamorous couple easily own some of the world's best homes

Here, we take a look at some of the best of their property portfolio, from their first house together as newlyweds, to their newest provincial purchase.

Situated at the edge of one of the world's most Instagrammed lakes, The Clooney's house at Lake Como, Italy, is one of the couple's most treasured properties. Purchased by George in 2002 for $7 million, the Lake Como house is one of many properties the Oceans 11 actor purchased in Italy in the early 2000s.  

Villa Oleandra boasts a seriously impressive 25 rooms and includes luxury amenities such as multiple tennis courts, an outdoor pool, home gym ideas, and a garage to house George's multitude of vintage motorcycles. The interior of the property has been kept relatively under wraps, however, the Villa was used to film sections of the 2004 Ocean 12 film according to GQ (opens in new tab).

The home is often the Clooney's first choice for summer holidays with the sleepy town of Laglio and the property's extensive high walls and fences protecting the family from the public eye. When not being used by the family, the villa has been known to host several high-profile figures through the years, from royalty like Prince Harry and Megan to Hollywood A-listers like Jennifer Anniston and Matt Damon.

Italy has held a tight grip on Georges' heart over the years, with the star seen helping locals clean up damage in the area earlier this year when the town was almost destroyed by flooding and landslides.

Sonning Eye Manor

Arguably the most beautiful home the Clooney own is their Sonning Eye manor found on the quiet English island on the Thames. Bought in 2014 just after their glamorous marriage, the $13 million home has been fully customized by the couple with multiple additions such as pool ideas and a glass-roofed garden escape added over the last few years. 

The home boasts nine bedrooms including one master suite, an expansive wine cellar, a wet boathouse, and a home gym and spa with a steam room and jetted plunge pool. 

Despite the additions, the property's period features have been preserved with high ceilings, chandeliers, marble and mahogany flooring, and Georgian molding still featured throughout the house. That has not stopped some more modern improvements, however, with a large lounging area, bar, and screening room (complete with a popcorn machine) making the ideal space for George to edit his projects. 

Amal's favorite spot is reportedly the bespoke glass ceiling garden room filled with citrus trees, a space that gives us serious greenhouse ideas. The home also has stunning fireplace ideas to warm the space in winter and very American swing benches on the back porch.

The exterior of the property 17th century, grade II listed Mill House oozes English country charm with original stone brick covered in lush climbing vines and manicured shrubbery. At the base of the steps, perfect lawn ideas surround the property proving plenty of space for the couple's young children to run around safely outdoors.

The rest of the garden ideas features idyllic streams, footbridges, and herbaceous borders. A garden pavilion offers a second relaxed natural escape while a magnolia walk sounds like the perfect way to spend a relaxed summer evening after dinner. 

Separate from the main property sits a 2,000-square-foot, two-story cottage designed for guests or live-in staff. 

NYC apartment

A move away from their more relaxed, grand estates, the Clooney's purchased a luxury NYC condo in 2016 as reported by the New York Post (opens in new tab). For $14.7 million, the couple reserved a full-floor apartment in the then-under-construction One Hundred East Fifty-Third Street by Foster and Partners.

The apartment is the vision of modern luxury, a far cry from their traditional English home, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering astonishing city views, polished concrete floors, and shared amenities such as a lap pool, private library, gym, culinary market, and a luxury restaurant ran by Michelin-star chef Joël Robuchon.

Not much is known about the specifics of the Clooney's apartment given the couple's pan-chant for privacy, but it is believed the space was ideally located for Amal who was reportedly teaching at the nearby Columbia Law School and regularly attending meetings of the United Nations. 

The building also boasts a private key-locked elevator and 24-hour security and doormen.

Domaine le Canadel – their newest Provence property 

Bought in 2021, the couple's most recent purchase was an $8.3 million Provence wine estate in Brignoles, France. According to Dirt (opens in new tab), the property did not come without its issues, however, with a few legal issues initially standing in the way of the sale.

Known as Domaine du Canadel, the historic estate is yet another period property cherished by the couple and sits just a few miles away from the equally as dazzling Château Miraval compound owned by a friend and fellow star, Brad Pitt. 

The 425-acre property benefits from vast picturesque gardens, a stunning lake, a private olive grove, and a 25-acre vineyard. The luxury amenities do not end there, however, with more tennis courts, a 72-foot shaded pool, and a dining terrace beneath a vine-lined arched trellis also on the laundry list of extravagant features. 

While the exact details of the home are not publicly available, the main house's staggering 10,000 square feet spread over three floors hints at the sheer size of the property.
