It was revealed earlier this year the 'Like a Virgin' hitmaker - who has Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 16, Mercy and David, both 11, and four-year-old twins Stella and Esther - had been house hunting in Portugal since March.

A source previously said: ''Madonna visited Portugal first in March and the fans went wild. One even sent her a message saying they were an estate agent on Instagram and she started following them back. It was then it became pretty apparent that she was looking to make a move permanent.

''Now the town in question is abuzz with the news that she's going to be based in this particular property, with the estate agents confirming they've sold the property to a big name.

''It's a stunning building in the hilltops with a huge number of bedrooms and bathrooms all decorated in striking Islamic style, although there are huge plans for a redesign inside already.''
