Keith Urban has banned Nicole Kidman from buying a house in France.

The Australian couple currently live in Nashville with their two daughters, Sunday Rose, four, and two-year-old Faith Margaret, and while Nicole would love a property in the European country, Keith has put his foot down.

She said: ''I first went there when I was 17. I went with my boyfriend, we stayed in a little attic room at the top of a B&B and I discovered red wine and baguettes and cheese. I've loved the place ever since - I'd love to buy a house there but my husband is like, 'Nooooo!' ''

Nicole, 45, filmed new movie 'Grace of Monaco' in France and brought her family along with her so they could experience the French way of life.

She told HELLO! magazine: ''I have been having fun working there. Because my little girls are not in school yet they've been able to come with me and I was able to put Sunday into a little French school for a while, which was fun.

''I have a little room for them on the set with a bed for them to have a nap and everything. And because of their ages, they're still very excited to be coming to the set and hanging out with mum. Probably in five or 10 years they'll be like, 'No way.' ''
