(CNN) — Known for his swashbuckling role in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, actor Johnny Depp has put one of his most treasured items on the market.

The actor and musician’s 37-acre estate and “private village” in the south of France is for sale. The asking price: $25.76 million.

Depp’s home in Plan de la Tour — near Saint -Tropez — includes a private “hameau” or small Provencal village featuring a main house, guest cottages, a chapel, a bar and restaurant, and other structures. There are 12 bedrooms and 12 full baths listed, among the more than 10,000 square feet of living space.

Sotheby’s International Realty, the listing agency, says Depp “painstakingly restored and decorated all the houses, one by one” and has invested more than $10 million on it. He bought the property in 2001.

The idyllic landscape features rolling hills and a swimming pool.

Besides the grounds, the buyer would also get all the property’s furniture and “a great number of personal belongings of Johnny Depp,” according to Sotheby’s.

Pictures on the realty website offer a glimpse into the private life of Depp, who’s known for being reclusive and staying out of the media spotlight. Visit Sothebys Realty for details and several photos of the property.

Rooms are decorated with paintings, antiques and musical instruments.

He apparently spent 15 years at the house with his then-partner, French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis.
