Johnny Depp selling off former vacation village
Johnny Depp is hoping to offload the French vacation home he once shared with his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis, complete with all of his old belongings. Johnny Depp is offloading the five-bedroom estate he purchased with Paradis in 2001. The estate contains an entire early-19th century village, near Plan-de-la-Tour in the south of France and gave the property a $10 million makeover, during which he converted an old church into a guest house.
The former couple subsequently used the pad as a holiday home for family getaways, but the actor has now placed the retreat on the market for $26 million , according to the Wall Street Journal. The Edward Scissorhands star is hoping to sell the house fully furnished, with all of his old art and personal effects, including everything in his ‘man cave’, which features a Pirates of the Caribbean theme. The estate also boasts a local restaurant, a chapel, a car workshop, and a staff house, in addition to two swimming pools, a gym, a skate park and an art studio, where the movie star reportedly enjoyed painting. Depp and French singer/actress Paradis split in 2012 after 14 years together. He wed Amber Heard, his The Rum Diary co-star, in February 2015.
