Algarve beckons for Hollywood stars

Speculation that Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie and her six children are to move to a luxury home in the Lagos area has not been confirmed by the Câmara. The Portuguese press reported this week that the Hollywood star is looking to make the move to the Algarve to escape the hectic pace of life in the US.

According to Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã, Casa do Pinhão, a luxury house located on the cliff tops above Lagos bay, has been considered. The stories were sparked by a posting on celebrity gossip website Showbiz Spy, which quoted an unnamed source close to the couple saying that Angelina has engaged a real estate agent to find her a beachfront property.

 “She loves Portugal and wants to raise her kids there,” said the unnamed source, adding: “She’s looking in a quaint village called Lagos. She wants to move there asap. The insider did not comment on whether or not Brad Pitt would be joining her. “Let’s put it this way,” the source said, “they have an open relationship. Every day is a new day with them.”

At the time the Algarve Resident went to press on Wednesday, no one from Lagos Câmara was available for comment.
