George and Amal Clooney are saying arrivederci to his famed Lake Como bachelor villa in Northern Italy.

A source close to the “Batman and Robin” star told Page Six he’s put it on the market for a whopping €100 million ($107 million).

Rumors of Clooney selling the Lake Como property have been around for some time.

Whispers about the sale dates as far back as 2010, when he was said to looking to be thinking about selling because of the paparazzi attention he was drawing to the area.

Then the same rumors popped up again in 2015, less than a year after married lawyer Amal.

“George loves the area and the people who live there, but is conscious of the attention he gets when he is in town. He has received a huge offer for the villa, which he is considering, and he would buy another, less accessible property in another area of Italy,” a source told us at the time.

The Clooneys bought the stunning Domaine du Canadel estate in the Provence region of France in 2021, and we’re told Amal prefers to stay there.

But we’re told Clooney, whom sources have described as “like the mayor of the lake” has pulled the trigger this time. Our source told us it’s a “very quiet listing” which we’re guessing means you won’t find it on Streeteasy!

“It’s very quiet. No advertising. No press — just high net worth [prospective buyers],” they said.

He reportedly purchased the property from the Heinz family for $10 million in 2002 — meaning that he’ll make a pretty tidy profit if he gets anything close to the asking price. (Not that he needs it — as well as being a top movie star, he also made a killing when his Casamigos tequila brand sold for a reported $1 billion).

Meanwhile, George and Amal seem to still being enjoying the property while they have the keys. They were spotted there having date nights at several restaurants in the area over the summer.

A rep for the star did not get back to us.
