The small village of Correns, Provence is feeling the shock of the media frenzy since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie set up house in this quaint corner of the world. Locals joke that you will be treated to a free glass of pastis if you can get a particularly silly story published.
The Jolie-Pitt’s, who are expecting twins, are staying at a sprawling Miraval domain, near Correns, where the large family enjoy nearly 1,000 acres of woods and vineyards, a gorgeous 17th-century villa, a swimming pool and helicopter pad.
Although the Brangelina circus has disrupted their normally quiet lifestyles, locals seem to have sypmapthy for the ever-hunted couple,
“They came here to find some peace, and instead there are paparazzi at the gate day and night. It’s really unbearable. There are always five or six motorbikes and cars ready to launch into a chase,” said Christine, a local winemaker. Another local, Onno Stijl, a chef at the Auberge du Parc hotel and restaurant said “It’s bringing business because people are a little curious. For now there’s a lot of hype, it’s going to be good for the next few weeks and after that we’ll see.”
