Succession’s fourth and final season is underway, meaning fans will soon find out the fate of the fictional media conglomerate Waystar Royco and the powerful family behind it. In the massively popular HBO show’s run, the Roys and their cohorts have frequented countless high-end places that any admirer of architecture, design, and travel would adore. To ease the bittersweet weekly release of the show’s final 10 episodes, we’ve laid out the absolute best filming locations in every season of the show—many of which you can actually visit. From a Norwegian hotel and Italian villas to New York estates and even a superyacht, you'll want to see these incredible places for yourself.
Juvet Landscape Hotel
Among the many incredible Norwegian filming locations in Succession’s fourth season is the Juvet Landscape Hotel. “When we saw images of the remarkable architecture and setting of Juvet, we got really excited,” producer Scott Ferguson told Variety. “Norway is a glorious, natural setting. It immediately seemed like a perfect place for a family gathering in the series. We studied different countries, but we realized Norway just has this exceptional landscape—like nowhere else in the world.”
Located in a birch forest just outside of the village of Valldal in Norway, the hotel features seven landscape rooms, two “bird houses,” and a four-bed “Skrivarstua” or writer’s lodge. On the property, guests can also enjoy a bathhouse, small huts, and coves.
Other notable filming locations in Norway seen in the fourth season include the Romsdalen Gondola, Atlantic Ocean Road, and Eggen Restaurant.
San Onofre Estate
In the premiere episode of season four, Shiv (Sarah Snook), Kendall (Jeremy Strong), and Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) convene at an unsurprisingly luxurious modern home tucked into California's Santa Monica Mountains. Specifically located in Los Angeles's Pacific Palisades neighborhood on San Onofre Drive, the 20,000-square-foot mansion blends indoor-outdoor living with high-tech features. The six-bedroom, 18-bathroom home was built by real estate developer Ardie Tavangarian in 2020. In 2021, it was reportedly sold to a young tech CEO for $83 million.

The true star of Succession’s third season is a lavish Tuscan palazzo called Villa Cetinale. The 17th-century architectural marvel comes complete with famous gardens that feature holy wood, a tennis court, a heated pool, and a center for horse racing. The Roman Baroque-style villa—which you can book as a private rental for a vacation or wedding—also has a park that features “seven votive chapels, sixteen full-length statues and 29 busts, as well as many stone animals and monsters,” according to its website.
Another stunning Italian destination featured as a wedding venue in season three is La Foce in Southern Tuscany. Built in the late 15th century, the property is made up of six historic houses—all of which are available to book for an extravagant stay. The renowned gardens on the property were designed by one of the owners Iris Origo and the English architect Cecil Pinsent. They are"considered today to represent the ideal combination between the natural landscape and XXth-century architecture, blending Italian and English traditions and taste," according to the property's website.
Villa La Cassinella
Right on Lake Como, Villa La Cassinella was used to portray tech visionary Lukas Matsson's (Alexander Skarsgård) secluded private estate in season three. Only accessible by boat, the villa is outfitted with Italian antiques and fine art. Manicured gardens, a heated infinity edge pool, a cinema, and a gym are only a few of the delightful highlights. The property accommodates up to 17 guests for a stay and 25 people for events.
The company hunting retreat in Hungary, featured in season two, was actually shot in New York at Oheka Castle. Located on Long Island in Cold Spring Harbor, the 109,000-square-foot, 127-room estate was built by financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn in the 1920s. The castle is the second-largest private home to ever be built in the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's available for tours and hotel stays as well as a wedding venue. Plus, it's been featured in other iconic productions including Citizen Kane.
To further cement the Roys as a wealthy bunch, the family spends time along the Croatian coast and specifically around Cavtat on a superyacht. That yacht is portrayed by the German-built vessel called Solandge. Stretching 279 feet, it's one of the largest and most luxurious charter yachts in the world. Learn more about the yacht, including how to book it, here.
At the end of season one, Shiv marries Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen) at Eastnor Castle in the United Kingdom's Herefordshire. Built between 1810 and 1824, the medieval mansion is the home of the Hervey-Bathurst family. Visitors can stay on the estate in cottages or camp in the deer park. Tickets for castle and ground tours are available. Plus, the estate is bookable as a wedding venue, corporate event space, and party location. If you're curious to know more about the show's filming experience at the castle, you can view some behind-the-scenes images and learn details about the shoot here.
The Roys and co. frequent various high-end spots across New York City, so naturally the show tapped The Plaza as a filming location. But here’s the twist: The iconic hotel portrays the interiors at a Virginia political conference during season three. Some of the rooms featured include a private royal suite, the Palm Court, Terrace Room, and Grand Ballroom.
Nestled in the Adirondacks, Whiteface Lodge sets the scene for the Argestes media conference in season two. The Lake Placid, New York, resort boasts a wood-beamed exterior and rustic interiors with carpet-covered sitting rooms and cast-iron fireplaces.
Jule Pond, the Henry Ford II Estate
In season one, viewers are taken to Logan Roy's (Brian Cox) Hamptons home. That luxury abode is portrayed by the Henry Ford II estate, which is also known as Jule Pond. The Southhampton property sits on 42 acres and was built in the 1960s by Henry Ford's grandson. It underwent a significant renovation in 2008 and sold for $105 million in November 2021. You can browse photos of the sprawling property here.
