Home .. Back to Patrick O'Brian

This is the view from the street of Patrick O'Brians house where he lived in Collioure. It is from Rue St Elme. It is understood the OBrian felt, and quite rightly, that his privacy was threatened by developers who built large residences near his home during the late 1960s and 1970s. Today the back of the house overlooks two such apartment complexes.
