According to The Mirror, the globe-trotting couple shelled out $35 million bucks for Chateau Miraval, a 1,000 acre estate in Provence they had previously been renting. They plan to spend another $10 million renovating the 17th-Century Chateau.
Apparently, the couple are planning on re-doing all 35 of the main house's rooms to "give them a more contemporary feel."
They also want to add a new gym, a jacuzzi, steamroom and spa. They also are planning a motorbike track for Brad.

"We're trying to spend more time in the South of France, because our kids have a more normal life there," Pitt said earlier this year.
