A writer who loved Antibes

Graham Greene - The Man Within

Did you know that famous English author Graham Greene lived in Antibes from 1966 to 1991? It was during this period that he wrote the espionage novel, The Human Factor. Greene stayed in a flat rue Pasteur where he enjoyed a magnificent view of Port Vauban, and he often lunched at Café Felix. No wonder Autumn and Winter were his favourite seasons as he wrote: “Then Antibes comes into its own as a small country town with the Auberge de Provence full of local people and old men sit indoors drinking beer or pastis at the glacier in the Place de Gaulle."

Antibes - Port

So come to Antibes and you will certainly find, like Graham Greene, that it is the only town on the Riviera that has not lost its soul.
