Beau Rivage Hotel in Bandol is where KM stayed in 1916
It was at the Beau Rivage Hotel that KM first coughed blood and was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She was 28 years old.
I stayed here while wandering the streets KM once walked in Bandol.
Seaside view near Chez Pauline in Bandol.
In my wanderings, I happened upon the very hidden Chez Pauline where KM lived with JM. She considered it one of the happiest and most creative periods in her life.
Menton Garavan train station. From here KM would walk up the street to Isola Bella, her home in 1920.

It was a thrill to actually visit KM's villa in Menton!
Entry to Gurdjieff's chateau where KM spent the last months of her life in 1923.
KM's bedroom on 2nd floor looked out on the gardens she so loved during her stay at G.I. Gurdjieff Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man.
Near Gurdjieff's chateau in Avon is a street named after Katherine Mansfield.
