Love, Actually fans have a unique opportunity to relive their favorite holiday rom-com at a historic Hollywood estate in Los Angeles. The iconic home, built in 1923, has been transformed into the Love, Actually Holiday Villa by the interior design duo from the Magnolia Network’s Capturing Home series, Amy Neunsinger and Kate Martindale. This transformation was done to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved film, and the Villa is available for bookings through December 30th.
This one-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom abode draws inspiration from the French cottage where the character Jamie (played by Colin Firth) escapes to after experiencing heartbreak and eventually falls in love with his Portuguese housekeeper, Aurélia (played by Lúcia Moniz). The interior of the villa is adorned with antique furniture, vintage accessories, and other old-world touches reminiscent of Jamie’s flat. The living room features a towering Christmas tree and a 20-foot tall fireplace, setting the perfect festive atmosphere for guests. The bar is fully stocked with Tanqueray dry gin and tonics from the London Essence Co., and guests are also treated to a selection of Harney & Sons tea and bites, including cucumber sandwiches and biscuits with jam. Additionally, a copy of the film’s screenplay is provided for guests to enjoy and take home.
For just $720 per night, guests can enjoy a pet-friendly, cozy hideaway and have the option to indulge in private massages, yoga classes, a menu of wine and drinks, dine-in meals, and more. Beyond the Villa, all bookings through December 30th include two orchestra tickets for Love, Actually Live at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, further enhancing the immersive experience.
This Hollywood Hills property also boasts a rich history, having been previously inhabited by well-known residents such as Oscar-winning actors Norma Shearer, Barbara Stanwyck, and Janet Gaynor, as well as legendary MGM figures like fashion designer Adrian Adolph Greenburg (better known as Adrian), and Oscar-winning producer and MGM head, Irving Thalberg.
