Subject: Re: Books by Travel Writers
Hi there, I agree with the Peter Mayle recommendation, and would like to add Frances Mayes Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany, as well as Ferenc Mate's The Hills of Tuscany. I've also enjoyed the Greek books by Charmian Clift--Mermaid Singing and Peel Me a Lotus etc. And I've just finished A Cottage in Portugal by Richard Hewitt and a wonderful book called The Last Old Place by Datus Proper (about his travels in Portugal. An all-time favourite of mine is Karen Connelly's One Room in a Castle, Letters from Spain, France and Greece. I'm looking forward to compiling a new stack of books based on recommendations here.
