Fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have listed their Stromboli island home for an undisclosed sum – thought to be upwards of €6m.
The Messina property is the market via Lionard Luxury Real Estate, with its official price only available on application. Dolce and Gabbana have owned the villa – which comprises three traditional white-washed Aeolian homes, converted into a single 235 sqm dwelling – since the 1990s.
Its seven suites are decorated with their signature D&G furniture and fabrics and an individual colour scheme, and the house is wrapped in 300 sq m of terraces looking out over the sea.
Stromboli is one of three active volcanoes in Italy and has been continually erupting for the last 85 years.

Tom Ford’s Cerro Pelon Ranch in New Mexico
$75m via the Kevin Bobolsky Group
Japanese master architect Tadao Ando designed this neo-Brutalist desert equestrian retreat for fashion designer turned director Tom Ford. Sprawling across 20,000 acres, Cerro Pelon features a boxy main residence with full-height windows, set beside a reflecting pool, as well as two circular riding areas, staff quarters, two guest houses, a landing strip and hangar.
And if that’s not enough bang for your buck, there’s pueblo ruins, a defunct gold mine, spaghetti western film set and plans for an as-yet unrealised Ando-designed second residency included in the eye-watering price tag, which is rumoured to be around the $75m mark.
Karl Lagerfeld’s Villa Jako in Hamburg
€10m, via Engel & Voelkers
Named in honour of Karl Lagerfeld’s longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, who died in 1989, the three-bedroom Romanesque manse dates back to the 1920s and was designed by Walther Baedeker. When Lagerfeld purchased it in 1991, he enlisted art conservator Renate Kant to restore it, and French designer Andrée Putman to create some of its opulent interiors.
Lagerfeld sold the Hamburg property a number of years ago, but it’s had renewed interest since his death at the beginning of the year. Take a look inside.
