The breathtaking property spans 37 acres and includes a 4,300-square-foot main house, six guest cottages, an art studio, two swimming pools, a gym, a bar, a restaurant, 15 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Over the years, Depp has reportedly spent more than $10 million to restore and decorate the estate, which features buildings that survived the French Revolution. What used to be a chapel has been meticulously converted into a guesthouse wherein the confessional was transformed into a closet.
Strolling through the estate, one would encounter olive groves, vineyards and 300-year-old oak trees while enjoying the picturesque view of sloping grounds and wide-open skies.
After acquiring the property in 2001 for an undisclosed amount, Depp first put the compound up for sale in 2015 with an asking price of about $25 million. The estate was later taken off the market and has now been relisted at $40 million.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star once shared the French property with his former girlfriend of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis. In a cover interview with French magazine VSD in 2009, Depp said that living in southern France "has given me everything. A marvelous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously."
"With Vanessa and the kids, we live in a sort of little village in the south and I have the impression of being in paradise," he continued. "It's a property of about 30 acres and you know what I do there? Absolutely nothing."
A source tells ET that Depp's reason for selling is to close that chapter of his life and move on.
