1 hotel/1 artist: Gérard Traquandi. Le Balmoral showcases a selection of works illustrating some of the artist's favourite themes,  whether  inspired  by nature  or  variations  based  on  the  old  earthenware  jars  you  can find  in  the  gardens  of Menton.

Discover the interview with Geneviève, a loyal customer of Le Balmoral Hotel.
She tells us why she loves this place so much.
