From a $15.5 million French VILLAGE to a $10.8 million Venetian mansion: Inside Johnny Depp’s VERY impressive property portfolio – as he embraces the quiet life at $15.8 million Downton Abbey-style Somerset estate

Johnny Depp has had a colorful love life, but his property portfolio has been equally as varied.

Over the years, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star has amassed an impressive array of homes around the world, with an island in the Caribbean, a French estate and a sprawling plot in Somerset (where he is currently seeking some solitude) among his haul.

However, due to his tumultuous and very costly divorce from actress Amber Heard – which was finalized in January 2017 – Depp was forced to get rid of some of his prized assets.

Here DailyMail.com rounds up some of the stunning properties which caught Depp’s attention – worth collectively more than $100 million – with some still in his possession and others long gone to the highest bidder.

The island is currently listed on Vladi Private Islands, which lists islands for sale, but there is no price noted

Depp first laid eyes on Little Halls Pond Cay while shooting Pirates of the Caribbean in 2004 and snapped it up for $3.6 million.

The island has six beaches (named after Depp’s children and former partner Vanessa Paradis), a palm tree-lined lagoon and solar-powered houses.

‘I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful,’ he told Vanity Fair in 2009. 

‘You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It’s instant freedom.’

In 2015, Depp used the island to celebrate his nuptials with actress Heard.

According to reports, the pair spent the weekend on the sandy outcrop where they held an extravagant celebration following their intimate wedding ceremony in Los Angeles.

Summing up the scene, one guest said at the time: ‘Amber did her own hair and make-up and Johnny was as laid-back as usual. But there has been a genuine glow about them… when they officially became man and wife… 

‘They wanted to do it all again on the beach and… (celebrate) with friends because they love the island and want it to be a continuing part of their lives together.’

Accommodation on the idyllic tropical isle is limited so some of the wedding guests stayed on Depp’s luxury yacht, Vajoliroja.

The island is currently listed on Vladi Private Islands, which lists islands for sale, but there is no price noted. 

The listing reveals that there are ‘proposals in place to construct a heli-pad and a sea-plane ramp, enough space to construct a private airstrip and even a natural deep water access channel with ample room for even larger vessels.’

In 2015, Depp was said to be ‘closing the chapter’ on his life with former partner Vanessa Paradis after he put the former couple’s sprawling estate on the market for $15.5million.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star’s decision to sell the home he spent 14 years and millions of pounds to restore, came just four months after Depp married Heard, 23 years his junior.

And it seems he has decided to leave the memories of his past life behind as well, as the sprawling 37-acre property was marketed as fully furnished, with DVDs still filling the bookshelves.

Alexander Kraft, chairman and chief executive of Sotheby’s International Realty France, who was selling the sprawling property, revealed: ‘Johnny had decided to sell the Plan de la Tour property to close this chapter of his life and move on.

‘He hopes that someone else will enjoy the property as much as he did and bring him or her the same happiness it brought.’

The exclusive hamlet, near the village of Plan-de-la-Tour, bought in its entirety in 2001 by Depp after he fell in love with both Paradis and France.

The thespian spent most of his time at the villa near St Tropez with French singer-actress Vanessa where he was said to love the quiet life of growing vegetables, shopping in the nearby town and playing with the couple’s children, Lily-Rose Melody and Jack.

He bought it as a wreck, but spent millions updating the mainly early 19th century buildings, built from the region’s traditional honey stone.

‘It was in a pretty rough state,’ said Kraft.

Following a renovation, stylish wooden beams, terracotta roofs and tiling complete the look that is centered around the village square in the classic French manner.

A church was converted into a guest-house with a once dark, secret confessional booth turned into a wardrobe.

There is also a restaurant, but no cash has ever been taken here for service. Instead, according to Mr Kraft, ‘Mr Depp uses it as a dining room’.

Other buildings in the square include a laundry and a garage – although more guest and playrooms hide behind their everyday exterior.

If all that isn’t enough, the 4,300 sq foot main home boasts five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and an art studio where the actor indulged in another of his passions – painting.

And if prospective buyers still require rooms for summer guests there are several cottages plus a bizarre covered wagon outfitted with a bathroom and kitchen.

Known for enjoying his down time between his money-spinning films, it is understood Depp did much of the interior design himself.

Which meant he was even able to squeeze in a tribute to the hugely successful ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise – in which he stars as Captain Jack Sparrow.

His wine cave, the estate agent’s pictures reveal, is decorated in the films’ motif, with skulls and brightly coloured scarves.

If that doesn’t impress enough, there are two swimming pools, a gym and a skate park with a half pipe that Depp had built for Jack and Lily-Rose. In 2016, the French village was still on the market and Depp ramped the asking price up to $55.5million in a bid to help with the costs of his divorce.
