Israel Hayom newspaper reports that the Hollywood star, currently in Israel with girlfriend Bar Refaeli, is looking to buy a plot of land on which to build a home to serve as a base during his visits.

American actor Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to build a house in Israel, the Israel Hayom daily newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Citing associates of DiCaprio, the report said that the actor - the boyfriend of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli - wants to buy a plot of land on which to build a house that will serve as his base during visits to Israel.

DiCaprio is said to be considering lands in the southern part of the country. Lacking a suitable option there, he will look at lands in the north. He is said not to be considering building a home in the central part of the country, where Refaeli's family lives.

DiCaprio, Refaeli, Dicaprio's mother and "Entourage" actor Kevin Connolly arrived in Israel on Sunday night for a week-long visit, part of DiCaprio's 36th birthday celebrations.

According to Israel Hayom, DiCaprio, Refaeli and Refaeli's father visited Caesarea on Monday.

The Israel Hayom report also cited rumors of a future wedding between DiCaprio and Refaeli.
