Literary Landmarks: Ian Fleming's Villa

TheMount Ian Fleming's beloved Jamaican home where he wrote 14 of his famous 007 novels. What Fleming loved most about Goldeneye was the out of doors, nature, the sounds and colors, the peace and drama of living by the sea. He delighted in "the blazing sunshine, natural beauty and the most healthy life I could live."

For more information click here: Ian Fleming's Villa, Goldeneye, or click here for books by Ian Fleming and here for Espionage Fiction.
