If you happen to be strolling through Lake Como and fancy popping by the Clooney residence, be warned.

Anyone who leaves their car or boat within 100m of the couple’s two villas could be fined up to €500 (£370).

The legal measure to protect their privacy has been officially declared by the mayor of Laglio, Roberto Pozzi.

The actor bought the Villa Oleandra in the centre of the village for €7.5million in 2002.

However, far from the harmonious idyll its surroundings suggest, Clooney has been plagued by paparazzi, besieged by autograph hunters and hemmed in by members of the media. His purchasing of Villa Margherita next door was intended to give Clooney more privacy, but to little avail.

 

A no-go zone was declared around the residences last summer ahead of the couple’s marriage in Venice.
