Hollywood star Johnny Depp has put his estate in Plan de la Tour, near St Tropez, on the market for somewhere in the region of $26million. The 37-acre site includes an entire Provençal village of 19th-century stone-built houses.
Since he acquired the property in 2001, Depp has restored and decorated the homes, spending more than $10million on improvements, and has used the estate regularly as his family getaway.
Among the features are a converted church, which is now a guesthouse, and a wine-tasting cave that apparently looks like it comes from the set of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. In addition to the main house of the estate, there are a number of guest cottages, a chapel, a bar and restaurant, a workshop/garage and a staff house as well as a hunter’s cabin, a painter’s studio, a children’s playroom and a gym.
The grounds contain vineyards, olive trees, a vegetable garden, fountains, two swimming pools and a skateboard area.
The property is being marketed by Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty.
