She's relocated her family to an 18th century palace in Lisbon, which was formerly a boutique hotel, but life inside Madonna's 12 bedroom home blends the luxury with the everyday.
The mother-of-six shares regular glimpses into her new life in Portugal on Instagram, showing her youngest daughters Estere and Stella, five, making a birthday cake in the kitchen and gathered around the piano with their older brother David, 12, reports the Daily Mail.
Madonna had a choice of 12 rooms and suites to choose from and opted for a bedroom with a plush green velvet headboard, hanging a framed picture of Debi Mazar hanging above on the wall.
The actress has been friends with Madonna, 57, for more than 30 years and appeared in several of her videos, including Papa Don't Preach.
A priceless memento from her pal Michael Jackson - a signed pillow - takes pride of place on the bed.
The late popstar wrote a message on the white cover, referring to the "filthy, dirty press".
He added: "They tell lies. Ban all the tabloids. I love you all so much. You will forever be in my heart."
The Like A Virgin singer is now dividing her time between Portugal, the US and UK, after her son David Banda - who Madonna adopted from Malawi in 2006 - joined the Benfica youth football academy earlier this year.
