My idea

My idea is to give as much as possible and ask as little as possible.
Therefore I am offering you my two beautiful houses in the Centro Storico of Sinalunga – home from home – at a very low rental.

These old village houses have been wonderfully restored with great vision by Rosalbo Zacchei, designer, builder and cat painter.

Down A Tuscan Alley

It all started with a seemingly impossible dream of coming to live in Tuscany. Now you can read the story of how it all began: ‘I gathered my meagre savings and with eternal optimism and two beloved cats, escaped England for a new life ‘DOWN A TUSCAN ALLEY’ never imagining the intrigue, passion and adventure I would find . . . ‘


Down a Tuscan Alley by Laura Graham is to be published in the summer 2011 by Solstice Publishing Inc.

    Dear Laura,
    Absolutely love your blog and the first chapters of your book are wonderfully refeshing from the normal “Hollywood ” Rose coloured glasses drivel that they normally write about life here!Well done!
    A stroke of luck brought me by your blog as i’ve just published my first book and am sifting through all the writer’s web sites that I can lay my hands on, then I delved in to “English writers” and discovered after 14 yrs of living here that there is an English writer living only half an hour away from me!I live in Sarteano and would love to hear from other English writers!Anyway enough of my rude babbling, hope to hear from you and if not ,my compliments and happy writing!

    Your book, Down A Tuscan Alley, is a captivating portal into the life in a small medieval Tuscan town. I have lived there, and I can say that it is very true to small village life in Tuscany. But what I liked even more was the very well written narrative that kept me wanting to read ahead to find out what happens to the very real and colorful characters. A fascinating and enjoyable read!
