Provence – Brad Pitt opens his music studio at Château Miraval and check out this elegant Provencal estate for sale nearby….
Brad Pitt has reopened Miraval Studios at his 1,000-acre Provencal wine estate Château Miraval. A $28m property that he originally bought with Angelina Jolie – before their divorce proceedings started. Pitt has been restoring the studios, even beyond their former glory, in partnership with French music producer Damien Quintard.
The studios were originally built by jazz pianist Jacques Loussier when he owned the property in 1977. They have hosted many famous music artists over the years, including Pink Floyd, The Cure, Sting and the Cranberries.
While the white ergonomic mixing desk – dubbed by Pitt as ‘the spaceship’ – is A-grade and looks like a sci-fi movie set, the emphasis on natural materials and original stone as the backdrop to ultra-modern furnishings makes the studio stand out from the crowd.

With an authentic Provencal look, combined with high-end design and technology, this renovation is designed to attract and draw people both to the studios and winery.
Picturesque, peaceful Provence, in the most visited country in the world, holds similar allure for millions all over the world. Simultaneously a holiday haven and an excellent investment in a highly stable property market, those seeking a luxury chateau or estate in Provence – on a slightly smaller budget to Pitt and Jolie – need look no further……
