Johnny Depp Lists His French Estate for $26 Million
The sale includes the actor’s furniture, books, art and other personal items.

Actor Johnny Depp is putting his estate in the South of France—a former village with more than a dozen buildings—on the market for €23.056 million, or about $26 million.

The sale includes Mr. Depp’s furniture, books, DVDs, art and many of the actor’s other personal belongings, according to Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty, the firm listing the property.

Near the village of Plan-de-la-Tour, the tiny hamlet that now comprises Mr. Depp’s estate had been largely deserted for decades. When Mr. Depp purchased the roughly 37-acre parcel in 2001, “it was in a pretty rough state,” said Alexander Kraft, chairman and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty France. Mr. Depp spent about $10 million restoring and updating the structures, which were likely constructed in the early 1800s from natural stone and wooden beams, with terra-cotta roofs.

The estate centers around a village square, with a church that Mr. Depp converted into a guest house; a former confessional is now a wardrobe. There’s also a restaurant with a full professional kitchen, which Mr. Depp used as “basically the dining room,” Mr. Kraft said. Other buildings in the square include a laundry building and a garage, all made to look like local businesses, Mr. Kraft said.

Mr. Depp did much of the decorating himself rather than hiring a designer, Mr. Kraft said. A wine cave in the main house has a “Pirates of the Caribbean” motif, with skulls and brightly colored scarves.

The main house is a rambling structure of about 4,300 square feet, with five bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms and an art studio where Mr. Depp painted. There are also several cottages that are used for guests, Mr. Kraft said, as well as a covered wagon that Mr. Depp outfitted with a bathroom and kitchen.

There are two swimming pools, as well as a gym and a skate park with a halfpipe that Mr. Depp built for his son.

Mr. Depp had spent extensive time at the property with his two children and former partner, French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis, Mr. Kraft said. Mr. Depp, who married actress Amber Heard in February, wasn’t available to comment.

I'm finding it really sad that he's getting rid of his place in France. I thought he could go there if he wanted to get away from the **** that happens back home. A bolt Hole ! It was the same with his boat. What's next his island ?

Nah, the island will stay, I'm sure. I'm not surprised the French property is being sold, but did think he'd keep the yacht.

He hasn't been to the French estate in years. It is at this point unnecessary to hold on to it. I'm sure Vanessa had a say in this decision as well. I don't see johnny selling the island unless he was broke, you know? It's still his getaway.

I consider it an important financial decision and a way of moving on. He had many good years in France with his family. I'm sure it still holds a special place in his heart.

I always thought he would retire there. Out of all the places he owned that's the place I'd like to retire to . You couldn't retire to an Island. When you get old there's a couple of things you may need immediately. Hospitals, food and transport to get to these things. That's the 3 things we thought of first.

Then you have to remember the hurricane season which lasts for 5 to 6 months. My brother will be leaving the Cayman Islands quite soon to retire back in the UK He's been in the Caymans for 40 + years. I know he'd like to retire to somewhere in South America but like everybody else he has to think about any medical emergencies that he might need in his old age.

It doesn't mean he wouldn't retire to France, just somewhere else, not quite so big and without the memories.
