(Newser) – Brad Pitt and pregnant Angelina Jolie have decamped to the French Riviera for “a stay of long duration,” a source reveals to People. The impossibly famous pair—plus kids—is staying in a historic villa overlooking the Mediterranean owned by Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Paul Allen; they'll remain at least through the Cannes Film Festival, which ends May 25.

Brad and Angie stayed at the Villa Maryland for a week before the birth of daughter Shiloh in 2006. Allen often entertains celebrity gatherings at his St. Jean Cap Ferrat home; a year-round staff of 12 will provide some extra help for the couple, already traveling with two nannies and three bodyguards.
