An ancient farmhouse immersed in the Roman countryside, an apartment with an art nouveau flavor in the heart of Barcelona and a villa overlooking the Balearic sea: these houses, all available on Airbnb, at first glance they might seem ‘only’ extraordinary places to spend holidays, but definitely have an edge. In fact, they have been chosen and converted into sets to host some of the most famous and appreciated television series of the last few months.
First of all, the latest masterpiece taken from the bestseller of the young Irish writer Sally Rooney, Normal People. The protagonists, Marianne and Connell, spend the summer in a villa in Italy: it is an ancient farmhouse in the Roman countryside, in Sant’Oreste, which belongs to Giada’s family, the Airbnb host, for over 150 years.
After Normal People we find Killing Eve, of which the third season was previewed last April. And it is precisely between the episodes of this chapter of the series that we see the luxurious apartment where Villanelle lives, the brutal but charming murderess protagonist of the series. The house, which can be rented on Airbnb, was built in 1906 and is located in the Barrio Gràcia, in Barcelona.
Finally, the news of the last month signed by the creator of Paper house, White Lines. According to the plot set in Ibiza, the villa with swimming pool where the English DJ Marcus lives with his daughters (before the foreclosure, at least) is instead located in Mallorca. It’s called Villa Can Pirata, directly overlooking the sea and can accommodate up to 10 people.
