    Several entertainment news sources have reported that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have acquired a $60 million 1,000-acre estate in the south of France. The joint is apparently called Chateau Miraval, located in a tiny village called Brignol in the Var.

    The property allegedly has 35 bedrooms, swimming pool, billiards room, indoor pool, gyms, sauna and jacuzzi and a huge banquet hall, E! reports. The castle is very intimate, with a driveway three miles long. The place is surrounded by forest on all sides and is close to Aix en Provence.

    Other celebrities such as Bono, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis also live in the French Riviera area. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spotted the estate from the air while house-hunting by helicopter. They asked the previous owner to name his price and agreed with the steep $65 million price tag demanded.

    The first rumors about her and Brad Pitt searching for a house in the European country emerged in the early stages of Jolie's pregnancy. The Jolie-Pitts, who have been staying at Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's Villa Maryland in St Jean Cap Ferrat in the south of France, are said to have chosen France for the location of the birth of their twins, in tribute to Angelina's French-Canadian mother Marcheline Bertrand who died last year.

    Asked whether her children would be learning French, Angelina replied that "It's a second language in our home," and her four children, Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, are already catching it.

    that place is amazing. So is angelina jolie.

    I could never buy something like that even I had the money. I think I would be feeling guilty at all times since so many people around the world live in extreme poverty.

    But I cant say that I wouldnt spoil myself in other ways though.

    35 bedrooms. that is mind boggling.

    B and A have more money than they know what to do with. They have given millions away. They have given their time volunteering. They have taken on children that were left parentless. They are wonderful loving parents to the four they have. We really need more people in the world who are as compassionate
    as they are for other things besides theirselves.

    Makes me proud to say that I have never seen a Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie movie in my life and don't plan on seeing any. Why anyone would waste their money on these people is beyond me.

    I'm sure Brad and Angelina are wonderful environmentalists and will by some carbon offsets to make up for the energy used by this castle and all the jet fuel wasted going back and forth.
