BELLEVUE HOTEL & SPA
BELLEVUE HOTEL & SPA is located in Valle d’Aosta, one of the most splendid and picturesque regions of Italy, bordering both Switzerland and France. A member of the Relais & Chateaux and Historical Italian Sites, the hotel and spa is surrounded by breathtaking views of the Prateria dell’Orso and is opposite a glacier in the heart of the Gran Paradiso national park in the center of Cogne. The property continues to be lovingly run by the Jeantet Roullet family, who has welcomed guests for four generations. A harmonic balance of rustic charm and sophisticated elegance was achieved through the careful renovation of this ancient alpine lodge, which still conveys its historical and antique atmosphere. This is the perfect spot for a getaway year round, especially for nature enthusiasts and lovers of outdoor sports such as cross country skiing, walking, and ice climbing, which are abundant throughout the area.
The Gran Paradiso Springs, which in November 2013 was awarded the Prix Villégiature as Best Hotel Spa in Europe, features 12,000 square feet of aquatic and wellness paths amid the beautiful Santi Orso fields, two indoor swimming pools, a whirlpool bath, five perfumed saunas, two steam baths, a salt grotto, an ice grotto, a fitness area, and several relaxation rooms.
The oasis not only offers a wide range of wellness and relaxation treatments, but also romantic treatments for couples, such as Bear’s Grotto, King Victor’s Bath, or the Marmot’s Den. Under the superb artistic talent of Chef Fabio Iacovone, a variety of eateries offer guests regional and international cuisine, including: the one-star Bellevue, the Bar à Fromage, Restaurant de Montagne; and La Brasserie du Bon Bec, which is located in the main square of Cogne, just steps from the hotel. All feature vegetables, fruits, and herbs grown at the hotel’s on-site organic garden. Once a week during the summer, a barbeque is organized in the on-site mountain hut, which is a very special experience.
