JOHNNY DEPP IS putting an entire French village he owns up for sale.

The property is a “hameau”, a private, small Provençal village comprising more than a dozen buildings and including a chapel and two pools.

Up for sale for an estimated €23 million, the sprawling compound is about 25 km from the French Riviera resort of Saint Tropez.

“Johnny has decided to sell the Plan de la Tour property to close this chapter of his life and move on,” Alexander Kraft, head of Sotheby’s International Realty France, wrote in a description of the estate.

The property is in the village of Plan de la Tour and has 1,000 square metres of living space spread across the 15-hectare (37-acre) property.

The Hollywood star’s compound comprises over 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms in the collection of structures that includes the main home, several guest houses, a hunter’s cabin, a workshop as well as a bar and restaurant.

“He decorated everything, paying attention to the smallest detail, in a ‘Bohemian’ or ‘artistic’ style and the property is being sold with all its contents, books, DVDs, furniture and some works of art,” Kraft says.

“This type of thing is very rare for a property that belongs to a star of his calibre.”

Depp, 52, carried out extensive renovations on the house.

“Over several years, he painstakingly restored and decorated all the houses of the village one by one, bringing his very personal touch to the project and creating a property of exceptional character,” the description continues.

Among the vines, olive trees and fountains of the property there is also a skate park he built for his son Jack.

Depp lived there during his 14-year relationship with French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis, which ended in 2012.

He married American actress Amber Heard earlier this year.
