24 OCTOBER 2008

After three years performing in Las Vegas and a stint on the road with her world tour, Celine Dion is ready to set up a permanent base in Europe with her husband Rene Angelil and son Rene Charles it seems. The singer is reported to have invested in a luxury property in one of Paris' most upmarket neighbourhoods.

Celine, who is of French-Canadian descent and has released several albums in her native tongue, has apparently splashed out £37 million for a house in Villa Montmorency, a gated residential area in the French capital's chic 16th arrondissement.

The Quebec-born songbird joins a number of other high-profile homeowners in the area. Her new neighbours include First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and her husband's billionaire pal Dominique Desseigne.
