“PITT” STOP FOR BRAD IN LOS MONTESINOS?

Pitt was allegedly photographed in the Vega Baja town of Los Montesinos

BY ANDREW ATKINSON reporting from Los Montesinos
BRAD Pitt could yet make Alicante based sleepy town Los Montesinos a stopping-off point in the star actor’s hectic life schedule – along with Angelina Jolie.

Pitt was allegedly photographed in the Vega Baja town of Los Montesinos two years ago, having arrived in Spain by private jet at Murcia, San Javier airport.

Sceptics find it hard to believe that the star-struck couple would settle down in Los Montesinos – but they have an affection for Spain – having also visited Madrid and Casares in recent times.

Pitt was seen dining with daughters Zahara and Shiloh in Madrid, and Brad and Angelina purchased Spanish artwork from an art Gallery in Casares, following a visit in the province of Malaga, Andalusia, purchashing two paintings, painted on glass, one a 16th Century-style female portrait of Isabella.

Los Montesinos, near to Guardamar, La Mata and Torrevieja – amongst other resorts – has similar scenic views as Casares Costa – a beach side strip of residential urbanisations, bars and restaurants.

It is said that Pitt and Jolie are seeking a quiet, relaxing place – such as Los Montesinos – where they were reportedly seen with bodyguards in tow, after driving the short distance from Murcia, to view a huge property worth 1 million plus euros.

Photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their six children were taken in Los Montesinos square, near to the Church, featuring a picturesque bell-tower, when they were in town on vacation – allegedly seeking a property.

Pitt and Jolie reportedly took time looking around Los Montesinos, having arrived in two Mercedes S-class cars along with bodyguards.

And locals in Los Montesinos have revealed that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have visited on more than one occasion.

Pitt starred in the film ‘The Councilor’ – a crime movie based around drug importers in Spain.
And Pitt, who shot scenes filming in Monte Pego, reportedly celebrated a colleagues birthday in Fortuna, Murcia, having been looking at property.

Pitt and his family are friends with retired football icon David Beckham and his wife Victoria and their four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.

Pitt has told the media that he wanted the former England, Manchester United and Real Madrid star to coach his children football.

Beckham was offered to give Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne personal lessons.

And Beckham who played for Preston North End in 1995, while on loan at Deepdale from Manchester United, aged 19, has said that he would like Pitt to play his character, if a film of his career is made.

As Author of the book: ‘David Beckham-In at the Deep End’, Preston-born Andrew Atkinson, who has featured on VivaTVs ‘Let’s Talk Show’ said: “If Brad Pitt does purchase a property in Los Montesinos, and invites David Beckham over, I will gladly speak to him about Becks’ days at North End.

“David Beckham has always remembered his roots in the game, and his short ‘apprenticeship’ at Preston North End as a teenager in the old third division.”

Andrew added: “Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their family would be a welcome addition to the Vega Baja and Los Montesinos – it would be a perfect ‘Pitt-stop’ in their hectic life schedule.”

EL MUNDO SPORTS SEMINAR IN TORREVIEJA

The mayor chats to Pedro Delgado

The Torrevieja mayor, Eduardo Dolon, took part in a National Seminar entitled “The Impact of Popular Sports in Tourism” on Tuesday, held at the Real Club Nautico of Torrevieja (RCNT) and organized by the national newspaper El Mundo

The seminar attracted a number of notable speakers including the 1988 winner of the Tour de France, and current TVE cycling commentator, Pedro Delgado; Germán Robles, President of the Foundation of Atletico Madrid; Fernando de Portugal, an executive with the Sports Event Company Last Lap, responsible for road race San Silvestre Vallecana which annually attracts over 30,000 competitors, and José Miguel Pina, Director General of the company Moonraker bikes.

The mayor stressed the importance that the city of Torrevieja places on Sports Tourism which, in just two years, has attracted over 16,000 sportsmen and women from a multitude of different European countries.
He said that Torrevieja has one of the best and most complete sports centres in the country, the success of which will always ensure that investment in sport continues to be treated as one of the most important features in improving the quality of life of its citizens.

The mayor thanked Pedro Delgado for his contribution to the forum. He acknowledged the ex cyclist as one of the most successful athletes that Spain had ever produced.

In response Delgado said that he was delighted to see that Torrevieja would be involved as a stage in the 2015 edition of the Tour of Spain, which, as concerns the level of tourist interest, will prove to be a great showcase for the city worldwide.

Torrevieja will launch the ninth stage of the Tour on Sunday 30 August, 168 km from the city to Benitachell. The previous day will see the cyclists arriving from Murcia. It will be a historic weekend marked by a great atmosphere. Inevitably there will be a major influx of visitors to the area, brought by the Vuelta itself, as well as the many thousands who will be in the city spending their summer holidays.

The ninth stage of the race will be the only of the Tour 2015 that will take the cyclists into the Alicante region. Much of the route will take the cyclists along the Costa Blanca coastline showing off some of the very best landscapes in the country.
