#1. Where do Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt live?
The Pitt-Jolie fairy tale: back in 2008, when Brad and Angelina were settling down with their adopted children and sweet new baby Shiloh, they were also expecting a new set of twins. What to do, what to do with a growing brood and no space to put them in? Buy a grand and glorious private mansion in the South of France to put the new family in, of course. Here’s the “history of” story about the luxury rental property they appear to have leased and then decided to purchase to make their family stay more long term as their new celebrity home.
LOCAL CELEBRITIES IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE: ENJOYING A EUROPEAN LIFESTYLE
The pop culture history news review of the the American royal couple nicknamed “Brangelina” were deciding to make their home a good part of the year in the South of France came as a shock to many back in 2008 — that is until they had a look at the fairy tale home the Pitt-Jolie family found as a rental and rumor says decided to buy and make their own.
“It’s called Chateau Miraval in a village called Brignol, which is near from Aix-en-Provence, and it’s absolutely unbelievable…” says one source, according to Hollywood Grind and other popular celebrity news reports.
Brad and Angelina will not be the first, last, or only International Star set to make the South of France a major home base. Historically, royal European nobles and aristocracy have all flocked to the region for it’s quiet pace and resort warm to moderately temperate climate feeling.
Some of the most recent celebrities to camp out in France for a fair portion of the year are quite famous (and talented). The couple’s neighbors will include Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis, and U2 singer Bono.
Looking back to the purchase time (in 2008), a source quite familiar with the property and the celebrity couple revealed to an eager celebrity home tabloid audience that:
Brad and Angelina are thrilled, they love the place and have already been furniture shopping to fill the place as it’s massive. They’ve already spent almost another million on furniture and the whole family can’t wait to move in.
Ponies and goats graze in the nearby fields. The house is surrounded by a forest so they’ll have total privacy, which is exactly what they’re after. No one will ever be able to get pictures of them relaxing at home, it’s just impossible.
