Commune Libre du Safranier (Free Commune of Safranier)
Commune Libre du Safranier (Free Commune of Safranier) Review
A few blocks south of the Château Grimaldi is the Commune Libre du Safranier, a magical little neighborhood with a character (and mayor) all its own even though it's technically part of Antibes. Not far off the seaside promenade, the Rue de la Touraque is the main street to get here, and you can amble around the Place du Safranier, where tiny houses hang heavy with flowers and vines, and neighbors carry on conversations from window to window across the stone-stepped Rue du Bas-Castelet. Said to have once been a tiny fishing port, it's now is the scene of festivals and quotes of Zobra the Greek, who lived here, including his "I fear nothing, I hope for nothing, I am free."
