In the meantime, we've stayed at the Bellevue several times.
Although not cheap with regards tot the prices in the many other Cogne hotel, I must say it is worth every bit.
It starts with the most helpful and friendly personnel, ranging from the restaurant staff over to the family owners. The hotel is built and decorated in the traditional Aosta style. Although at home we are fans of contemporary archtitecture, at the Bellevue it adds up. The rooms are al decorated in the same consequent style. The beds are quite hard for peeple with a BMI below 23, but that seems to be the case in every top end Italian Hotel.
The spa is OK but not of the most modern type. The treatments are of a very high standard and good price-quality.
Then there 's the cuisine: fan tas tic! We 've been to the Aosta Valley some 20 times, no where have we found such a extaordinary balance between the traditional Valdotain cuisine and the modern mise en place. The wine list is also very elaborate, though not of the cheapest. I shouldn't forget the views from the restaurant over the valley, of a nearly unearthly beauty. And the Valnontey valley is to my regards (as a climber I've seen nearly every valley in Swiss and Italian alps) the most beautiful of all.
Put this together and you have a mountain jewel where you hate to check out every single time.
