Schumacher’s wife Corinna has put the 20,000-square-metre property up for sale for the huge price, according to German magazine Bunte. The real estate agent in charge of selling the family estate describes it as “an extremely peaceful and safe property.” The Schumacher family bought the ‘Sur le Moulin’ estate for the equivalent of €3.5 million at a time when Michael was about to win his fifth F1 world title in 2002.
The family renovated the property and expanded the ranch to a horse farm but now the idyllic manor is for sale at just over £5million.
Late last month, it was revealed Schumacher’s family were allowing rare footage of the Formula 1 legend to be released as part of a new documentary on him as he continues his recovery from his horrific injuries.
Private recordings will appear in ‘Schumacher’, which has been created by German filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertons.
The documentary will also feature Schumacher’s wife Corinna, his father Rolf, daughter Gina-Maria and son Mick – who has broken onto the F1 scene with the Haas team.
Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm, who now acts as a spokesperson for the family, said: “The film portrays Michael’s impressive career, but also many of the facets of the complex man.
“The merciless and daring Formula 1 driver, the ambitious athlete, the accomplished mechanic with a unique technical flair, the reliable team player and loving family man.”
Benjamin Seikel, a co-producer on the documentary, praised the Schumacher family for allowing them to make this new documentary.
He said: “We are thrilled to have had the trusting co-operation of Michael Schumacher’s family and management.

Schumacher was brought out of his coma in 2014 after 250 days and was transferred to a hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland before being allowed to return to his Lake Geneva home.
At that time, his manager Ms Kehm said: “Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore.
“We would like to extend our gratitude to the entire team at CHUV Lausanne for their thorough and competent work.”
She added Schumacher faced a “long and difficult road ahead.”
But in the years since, details of Schumacher’s health have been kept secret, with his family choosing to keep public statements to a minimum.
Jean Todt, the president of the F1 governing body who oversaw five of Schumacher’s seven world titles as boss for the Ferrari F1 team, revealed last year he had visited the sporting legend and provided an update on his condition.
He told the PA news agency: “I saw Michael last week. He is fighting.
“My God, we know he had a terrible and unfortunate skiing accident which has caused him a lot of problems.
“But he has an amazing wife next to him, he has his kids, his nurses, and we can only wish him the best and to wish the family the best, too.
“All I can do is to be close to them until I am able to do something, and then I will do it.”
