The chateau also carries a rich musical legacy.

In the 1970s, the estate was home to French pianist and composer Jacques Loussier, who built a recording studio on the grounds.

Scores of famous musicians have recorded music there, including AC/DC, The Cure, Shirley Bassey, Sting, and Pink Floyd.

According to the Miraval website, Brad and Angelina have continued the tradition by giving 'impetus to the heart of the estate as a place dedicated to the arts — music, cinema, theater, local food and fine wine.'

Brad and Angelina arrived in Nice on Saturday for their nuptials.

Angelina reportedly walked down the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, on each arm while her daughters Zahara and Vivienne threw petals, and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

The secret wedding seems to have been a quiet affair as Angelina's father Jon Voight, Brad's brother Doug Pitt, sister Julie Neal and their respective families weren't in attendance.

Speaking from his home in Springfield, Missouri, Doug, 47, said: ‘I’m letting Brad make all the statements, it’s all good though.’

It is not yet clear if even Brad’s parents Jane and William, were at the wedding as William was contacted at his home in Springfield this morning – but declined to comment.

After a short family honeymoon in Nice, the Jolie-Pitts are headed to Malta to start shooting their second film together, By The Sea, written and directed by the Oscar-winning actress.
