The villa is located on a cliff, with breathtaking views of the sea. The villa was built from locally quarried sandstone and granite. The arched windows are built with stones carefully selected by the architect and the roof is tiled in a Mediterranean style.

He has gone through two noisy marriages and is currently single. In particular, the divorce between him and actress Angelina Jolie has consumed media coverage since 2016 until now.
According to Page Six, in a recent trial held in Los Angeles, USA, the judge announced that Brad Pitt lost his lawsuit against Angelina Jolie. The couple disputed over a common property when they were still married.
Brad Pitt sued Angelina Jolie in February 2022 when he claimed that Angelina Jolie arbitrarily sold shares of the Chateau Miraval estate and winery in France. The property was rented by the star couple in 2008 and completely bought back in 2011. This is also where the Jolie-Pitt couple held a secret wedding in 2014.

According to the court’s ruling, the Bullet Train actor could not provide evidence that Angelina Jolie arbitrarily sold the wine estate owned by both of them. He also could not prove that this hindered his business .
Angelina Jolie’s representative said that Brad Pitt already had a grudge against his wife, so he thought that Jolie’s sale of shares to businessman Yuri Shefler caused damage to him.
In addition, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are also in the process of disputing custody of their children after filing for divorce in 2016, citing many irreconcilable differences.
Currently, Brad Pitt is temporarily losing to his ex-wife in this battle as Angelina Jolie has full rights to the children while the Hollywood actor only has visitation rights. The couple got married in 2014 and divorced two years later.
