During 1920–21, New Zealand writer Katherine Mansfield spent some of the happiest and most productive months of her life at Villa Isola Bella in Menton, on the French Cote d'Azur. She is seen here on the villa's terrace in 1920. From 1970 the Katherine Mansfield Fellowship has enabled a New Zealand writer to spend at least four months living in Menton, and to write in the villa's Katherine Mansfield Memorial Room.
