“I hope that someone else will enjoy the property as much as I did and bring to the new owner the same happiness it brought me”


Years ago, in 2010, so, anyway, in a particular moment in Johnny Depp’s life, People Magazine published a piece by the title: “How Johnny Depp Enjoys the Simple Life in France” by Peter Mikelbank.

The actor  ____Johnny reflected with the journalist on the mansion he had bought at Plan-de-la-Tour with Vanessa Paradis.

Johnny had also filmed that years Chocolat a movie based on a book written by Joanne Harris and set up in a little town in the South of France.

The idea of buying a house a consequence of his love for Vanessa and the arrival of the kids.

A corner where the couple and kids could stay relaxed and distant from the eyes of paparazzi.

What a melancholy, thinking at this absolutely shocking idea of selling this precious and particular estate considering the profound meaning had had in Johnny’s life.

And why this?

Because of a change of…partner as revealed by Alexander Kraft of Sotheby’s International Realty France.

Kraft said the actor confessed him: “Johnny has 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 him.”

Why selling happiness?

Maybe it would be better to sell a haunting estate, a horrible place, surely not a house presented joy and happiness.

The period Johnny bought the house has been stunningly lucky and happy and joyous and that changing partner doesn’t mean changing also “altitude”, but…

We all know Johnny.

If when in love for Vanessa Johnny loved South France, and beautiful wonderful Europe maybe now falls in love for beaches and sands, who knows?

No, sorry Johnny, although it’s not my business and you can do what you want of your life I strongly disagree! with this idea of selling Plan-de-la-Tour.

In the article on People Johnny said to People he wanted to create a special rosé or red wine. Firstly he added he wanted to produce it for domestic use and later, who knows, commercially.

Johnny said to People France had given everything to him: “A marvelous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously“!

Johnny continued saying that living in South France was like to live in a sort of Paradise and in a normality uncommon in the USA.

Johnny revealed he stayed in Plan-de-la-Tour for three months per year re-charging his batteries, doing nothing as he told to People or just doing what he loved the most.

People fell in love for him because of his profound humanity and affordability, two qualities sometimes uncommon in an actor.

People started to feel that Johnny was more European than American and they all adopted him with great enthusiasm.

Johnny loved his property so badly.

He told to People he lived there a truly normal existence.

To him it was like to be in another planet (our planet, Johnny, the planet of common people).

When I wake up I go look at my garden. I go see if my vegetables are growing, if certain flowers have started to bloom” said to People.

Johnny also loved to bring his two kids somewhere for a walk. He told to People he said to Vanessa: “Where will we go for a walk? Should we eat at the house with them or maybe go for a picnic?” These ones told Johnny the biggest “problems” to resolve in a daily base.


What a wonderful life, Johnny, that one.
