This is where the American author Frances Mayes settled, the subject of her best-selling books about her lifestyle change through buying and refurbishing an ancient stone house, learning to deal with tradesmen, tuning into the sense of the history and sense of time of the place, and gradually becoming part of the local community.

Although i don't know Frances Mayes, this town certainly looks beautiful and also calm and peaceful. Looks like it wasn't very hot judging by the coats the people wear. TFS Joe.

"Under the Tuscan Sun: at home in Italy" is Mayes' best known and best selling book, followed by "Bella Tuscany: the sweet life in Italy" - both well worth a read.
We chose late Autumn for our motoring tour - less tourists, beautiful autumn colours, vintage time in the vineyards - perfect.
Glad you're liking the photos.
