Angelina Jolie house hunting
Angelina Jolie is keen to raise her children in Portugal and is looking for a beachside property in the country
Angelina Jolie is house hunting in Portugal.
The 'Changeling' actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - is tiring of the hectic pace of life in the US, and is keen to embark on a more sedate lifestyle.
A source told gossip website ianundercover.com: "She loves Portugal and wants to raise her kids there. She wants to move there as soon as possible."
Angelina is said to be considering buying a property looking onto the beach in the village of Lagos, in the southern Algarve area of the country.
It is not known whether Angelina will use her new home as her main residence, or whether Brad will move with her.
The source added: "Let's put it this way - they have an open relationship. Every day is a new day with them. I love them both dearly but I must confess things have been hard for them the past few months."
Angelina is not the only celebrity interested in buying a new home.
Lily Allen has been looking at properties in Devon, south England, and is said to be set to splash out £300,000 on a residence there.
A source said: "Lily loves London but would like a bolt hole to escape to. Kate Moss, Liz Hurley and Pete Doherty all have pads in the Cotswolds, but she hit on Devon."
