detective Benoit Blanc (played by Daniel Craig) heads to Greece for an extended stay at the jaw-dropping Glass Onion house.
But does Miles Bron’s mansion exist in real life? And if it does, where would one find it? We solved the mystery for you....
Exterior shots of the Glass Onion house were filmed at Villa 20, a luxury Aman vacation resort in Porto Heli, Greece, on the east coast of the Peloponnese.
It’s not technically an island, per se, but it’s isolated enough to make it the perfect fit for Miles Bron’s futuristic mansion.
However, there’s no sports car parked on the roof and there’s sadly no glass onion, either — those were all added through special effects.
The good news is that you can actually visit, and stay, at the property where the filming took place – if you can afford it, that is.
Villa 20 at the Amanzoe resort features suites that run roughly $2,000 a night.
The Villa was designed by Ed Tuttle and Marios Angelopoulos and offers stunning views of the Aegean Sea and the Peloponnese.
It features all kinds of luxurious amenities, including a private spa, six swimming pools, and even a traditional Greek taverna under the olive trees.
While the cast and crew spent roughly two weeks shooting at Amanzoe in Greece, they spent even more time filming interior scenes in Belgrade, Serbia.
That’s where all the futuristic sets were created, like the room inside the glass onion, and the main hall adorned with glass sculptures.
