The co-founder of Microsoft owns Villa Maryland in St. Jean Cap Ferret and has made the property available to the Hollywood celebrities while they search for a more permanent location to spend the next few months.
Allen, often referred to as the ‘accidental zillionaire’ met Angelina when she was doing Shark Tale in 2004. The DreamWorks project was reportedly bankrolled by Allen, who first opened his home to the couple in 2006. Brad and Angie stayed at Villa Maryland for a week and fell in love with the picturesque setting overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, as reported by E! Online.
The Jolie-Pitt clan arrived with two nannies and three security guards in tow. The villa is regularly staffed by twelve employees and is said to be fortressed with fences and security gates. Pitt will be scouting out homes in the region as the family plans to stay through the summer birth of Angelina’s baby or babies. Namibia, Africa was the birth place of daughter Shiloh two years ago.
While in the French Riviera, Angelina and Brad will be attending the 61st Cannes Film Festival. Two of her films will be previewed during the week long event. Changeling, directed by Clint Eastwood, is a 1920’s kidnap thriller. The other film is Kung Fu Panda with Jack Black.
The peninsula is nestled between Nice and Monaco. The super yacht, seen in one of the thumbnails, belongs to Paul Allen and is said to be the sixth largest private yacht in the world. We wonder if the Jolie-Pitt family will enjoy that amenity during their stay.
