Robbie Williams is reportedly set to move to Switzerland
The 47-year-old pop star and his wife Ayda Field are poised to move to a £24 million villa on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, having quietly put their 17th century mansion in Wiltshire, South-West England, on the market

"It seemed like an idyllic hideaway in the English countryside but he never really felt at home there.
"In a matter of months he realised it wasn’t where he and Ayda wanted to settle.
"Now he’s planning a reshuffle of his property portfolio since deciding to buy in Switzerland. The family moved there last summer and rented for six months to make sure they wanted to stay.”
Robbie - who also owns homes in London and Los Angeles - is now looking forward to spending the next chapter of his life in Switzerland.
The insider explained: "They’re both really excited to have found exactly the lifestyle they were looking for in Switzerland.
"They’ve been there for less than a year but the children are settled in schools and they all love the calm, family vibe they’ve got going on there."
Robbie previously admitted that his Wiltshire mansion gives him "the creeps".
The 'Angels' hitmaker - who married Ayda in 2010 - suggested that the spectacular property is haunted by past events.
Robbie - who bought the mansion on impulse back in 2008 - explained: "If there is great grief or great pain or tragedy, I think it can soak into the walls and leave an essence there that remains for a very, very long time."
