Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas is believed to have bought his vast S’Estaca property in Spain back in the 1990s with his then-wife, Diandra Luker. Following their divorce, the couple initially put their million-euro property on the market. A few years ago, Douglas showcased the estate in a promotional video that he narrates himself. However, Douglas couldn’t face leaving Mallorca behind. So, he bought his ex-wife’s share and now owns the property with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. This power couple has also bought a beautiful property in Javea in Alicante on the stunning Mediterranean coast.
