It’s a double date trip for George Clooney and Amal Clooney! The actor, 63, and the human rights attorney, 44, were photographed stepping off a private jet in the picturesque town of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the south of France with their best friends, supermodel Cindy Crawford, 56, and her businessman husband Rande Gerber, 60, on Friday, June 3. The foursome was then taken via a private car to the luxurious Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat.

The details of the French getaway are unknown, but the trip comes shortly after it was reported that George and Amal have been eyeing a 425-acre estate not too far away from Brad Pitt‘s southern France chateau, per the Daily Mail. Brad’s estate is located in the village of Correns, and he is currently in a tense legal battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie after she sold her share of it allegedly without Brad knowing. The Daily Mail said the estate George and Amal are considering is listed for about $8.5 million. They were also reported to be buying a different estate last year, but nothing was confirmed.

George, Cindy, and Rande have been friends for nearly three decades, and Amal made the trio a foursome when she met George. The couples are so close that they don’t just vacation together; they built a vacation compound together in Los Cabos, Mexico. The estate provides sweeping views of Mexico’s Baja peninsula and has two homes on it so the couples can retreat in privacy after a long day of fun in the sun together. “We’ve been hanging out for 20-something years,” Cindy told  Architectural Digest in 2013 when the publication ran a feature on their stunning vacation pad. “Long before the houses were built, we would travel to Baja together, staying at different hotels and drinking tequila.” George, Cindy, and Rande came up with the idea when they were on vacation in the area and saw a vacant lot. They thought it would be much more efficient to have a vacation home they could always count on instead of going through the process of booking a new trip each time they wanted to get away. They named their vacation compound Casamigos, or “House of Friends,” in English.

The name may sound familiar because George and Rande founded their tequila brand, Casamigos, in 2013. They sold it in 2017 for about $700 million, plus another $300 million in potential earnings if the brand did well following the new company’s acquisition, per CNBC.

The French vacation to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat came around a special time for both couples. Cindy and Rande celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary on May 31, which Cindy commemorated on Instagram with a black and white photo from their beach nuptials. “Another year of life together. Couldn’t have picked a better partner—through it all, I’m grateful for your strength, loyalty and playfulness. Happy 24th anniversary! Woohoo!” she captioned the post. Plus, the trip came ahead of George and Amal’s twins, Alexander and Ella‘s, fifth birthday, which falls on June 6. The details of how the couple, who have been married since 2014, planned to celebrate their kids’ birthday are not known.

Both couples looked ready to relax after they stepped out of their private jet in France. George kept it casual with a black collared shirt, light wash jeans, a black backpack, and purple sunglasses. Amal looked effortlessly gorgeous in a flowing bright pink dress she paired with a brown belt that complemented her tiny waist. She accessorized with black oversized sunglasses and a brown purse.

Cindy looked vacation casual in a white peasant top she tucked into army green pants and paired with a brown belt. Her voluminous brown hair flowed in the wind and she wore black sunglasses. Rande donned a light blue polo-style shirt and light blue jeans. Like George, he also rocked a pair of sunglasses and a bookbag.
