Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ‘To Spend $45m on French Love Nest’
Posted by Adam
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are set to defy rumors they’re heading for splitsville — by splashing out $45million on a French chateau, according to new reports.
The couple — who raise six children together — have purchased the 17th-Century Chateau Miraval, set on a 1,000-acre estate in Provence, for $35million.
And they’ll shell out an extra $10million turning the thirty-five bedroom home into the “love nest of all love nests”.
The couple will add steam rooms, jacuzzis, a spa and a new gym.
A motorbike track is also to be built, while helicopter landing facilities are going to be improved.
“They want to make sure this very romantic property becomes the love nest of all love nests,” a local property developer told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper. “Brad is looking into local schools for the kids, and both he and Angelina are improving their French.”
Security around the house will be improved hugely, to include a surveillance center, spy cameras, alarms, and infra-red sensors.
Some work has started, while more complicated renovations still need to be agreed by the local council.
Jean-Claude Sadion, mayor of the nearby town of Correns, said, “The application has been received for widespread work on their new house, and we are delighted that they will be here more permanently. They are a wonderful couple with beautiful children and we will hold a civic reception to honor them.”
