Overview

Managed by four generations of the same family, the 90 year-old Bellevue Hotel remains markedly traditional but has adapted brilliantly over the years with the addition of an award-winning spa and Michelin-starred restaurant. Exceptional service and a magical location in summer and winter ensure that guests return year after year.

 

Winner of several awards, the 1200m² Gran Paradiso Springs wellness area is the ultimate in blissful indulgence. Facilities go beyond the norm with a choice of five saunas (including citrus and hay), a Turkish and Roman bath, and salt and ice caves. There are two pools, including a mineral salts pool reserved for adults, and a fitness area.

Rooms

Rooms are furnished in alpine style, with wooden floors and furniture, chintzy fabrics and large windows that frame awe-inspiring mountain views.

 

Several of the rooms have balconies and suites have a Jacuzzi, private sauna, fireplace and views of the Gran Paradiso glacier.

Dining

There are several restaurants, ranging from relaxed outdoor lunchtime dining to the ultimate in gourmet dining, the four-table Michelin-starred Le Petit Restaurant.

 

Local seasonal produce and ingredients from the hotel’s kitchen garden feature on the menu at the main Bellevue Restaurant.

 

More informal options include the Brasserie du Bon Bec (situated in the town centre) which serves sharing dishes such as fondues and, in a converted dairy overlooking the meadows of Sant’Orso, the Bar à Fromage.

 

Enjoy al fresco lunches at any time on the Terrace and, once a week during the summer, La Maison à l’Alpage grills meat and prepares polenta underneath brilliant blue skies and amongst the fragrant woodland of the Grand Paradiso Park.

Map

  A small, picturesque town to the northwest of Turin in the Italian Alps, Cogne lies on the edge of the stunning Gran Paradiso National Park. Cogne is generally considered the capital of the Gran Paradiso, Italy’s oldest national park. All around, there are snow capped mountains, lush green meadows and the gentle ringing of cow bells.

Local attractions include the Botanical Giardino Alpino Paradisia, a carpet of alpine flowers hovering 1700m above sea level in the national park, and the Lillaz waterfalls.

During the summer months, this is a world of hiking trails through the mountains or, for those looking for a gentler pace, through the three valleys. The new Skyway Mont Blanc, a revolutionary 360° rotating cable car which opened in summer 2015, offers dramatic views across the Mont Blanc mountain range.

Alpine skiing and other winter sports activities are available locally but the area is best known for its cross-country skiing thanks to its 80km of tracks through woods and across bridges and mountain streams.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
