Varykino was the name of both a lake retreat and an island in Naboo's Lake Country.[2]


Centuries before the Clone Wars, a tragic poet called Omar Berenko lived there in a community of human and Gungan outsiders.[3] The Naberrie family used it for some time, and Padmé Naberrie often spent summers there before becoming Queen Amidala. Paddy Accu, an old man, took care of the place. At the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker secretly married Padmé Amidala at Varykino.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Varykino scenes were filmed at Villa del Balbianello, on Lake Como, Italy.[4] The interiors, which were sets constructed on a soundstage, were inspired by the basic architecture found in Caserta, where Theed was filmed, but mixed with a softer, personalized style.[5]
