Jolie & Pitt's Rock 'N' Roll Castle
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are living in the middle of rock 'n' roll history - music legends including Pink Floyd, AC DC, The Cure, Sting and Chris Rea have all recorded albums at the couple's French chateau.
The Hollywood couple moved in to Chateau Miraval in the tiny village of Brignol last summer (08) to create a countryside retreat for their six kids.
The traditional French building has a hi-tech recording studio - named Studio Miraval - in its grounds, and a string of big names have passed through the doors.
British rockers Pink Floyd laid down tracks for their ground-breaking 1979 hit The Wall at Miraval, and AC DC occupied the studio in 1986 for their album Blow Up Your Video - with the band admitting they chose the building for its "wonderful" rural location.
The Cure took up residence for their seventh studio album, 1987's Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, and moved into the outbuildings on the estate with their families until the record was completed. In a subsequent interview, frontman Robert Smith revealed he loved the peaceful and isolated location of the French mansion, "We recorded Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me in the Studio Miraval, during several weeks. It is in the middle of vineyards, in a pleasant place. We lived over there with our family, very relaxed, in three isolated and protected houses."
Sting, The Cranberries, Shirley Bassey, Chris Rea and German rock band Rammstein are among the other music greats to have recorded there.
The last big name to grace the studio was Courtney Love, who holed up at Chateau Miraval in 2003. Since then the studio has seen a decline in business and has reportedly sat empty since the current owners rented the estate to Pitt and Jolie.
The Hollywood couple has now reportedly agreed a deal to buy Chateau Miraval for $56 million (£35 million), with plans to spend a further $16 million (£10 million) on renovations including a gym, a bigger wine cellar and a motorbike track.
