Gerard Depardieu is selling his mansion, which cost at the moment is 50 million. Euro. Luxury estate with total area of 1,800 square meters is located in the heart of Paris in a former hotel Chambon, which was built in the mid 19th century and is on the list of historical monuments of France. The house has 20 rooms, two big terraces, 8 balconies, elevator, indoor swimming pool; all seasoned with a great design in an eclectic style and renovated several million euros.
What prompted the famous Frenchman to leave such a cozy nest, the love of which he talked so much? A few weeks ago Depardieu declared himself a "citizen of Europe" and said that he was leaving his native France in search of a new place of residence (the actor has already settled in Belgium). The reason for the move lies in the increased "luxury tax", which currently stands at 75% and applies to people whose annual income is more than 1 million. Euro. These major innovations France owes to the new president Francois Hollande, who very sharply reacted to the statement Depardieu and called his behavior "pathetic" and "unworthy Frenchman».
I recall that his decision to leave the country has already declared the richest man Bernard Arnault - the head of the largest group of companies LVMH, which produces products under the brands Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Guerlain, Moët & Chandon and Hennessy. Arno condition estimated at 41 billion dollars.
