This Pyreenes ski-resort 'so hot right now' thanks to original Zoolander's swish new pad

Model Mark Vanderloo, thought to have inspired Ben Stiller's movie character Derek Zoolander, has bought a retreat in a Pyreenes ski-resort. 

Mark Vanderloo, said to be the inspiration for “really, really, really ridiculously good-looking” movie male model Derek Zoolander, has just bought a retreat in Andorra in the Pyrenees.

Hollywood actor Ben Stiller is thought to have based his character in Zoolander and its sequel, now in London cinemas, on the Dutch model.

Near Vanderloo’s new mountain bolthole is this three-bedroom flat, in the village of El Tarter, overlooking the ski slopes of Grandvalira.


The open-plan living area has floor-to-ceiling windows on to a large terrace.

The picturesque property was listed with Andorra Sotheby’s International Realty for £919,000.
