We enjoyed a five day break here at the begining of June. I can think of absolutely nothing negative to say about the place. The decor is wonderfully old-fashioned - very classy Alpine antique, and entirely appropriate.
The views are spectacular - definetly the best in Cogne. All the way across a flower-filled Alpine meadow to the glacier... Well worth paying that little bit extra for a mountain view.
The walks in the area excellent. We saw Chamois and other mountain goats (the ones with the big horns!) very close. You are right in the middle of the National Park, with spectacular scenery, accesible right from your door. The hotel has a guide available to help you plan your walks, which can be as challenging or easy as you like.
The food is excellent. Not sure if the gourmet restaurant has a Michelin star or not, but it certainly deserves one. Very sophisticated, and the food is surprisingly light... The restaurant staff are all excellent - like a well-trained military brigade... When my wife left to get something from our room they had a hot plate over her plate within seconds... Good wine list too.I strongly recommend you take the half board option, where you get an evening meal for 40 Euros... may sound like a lot, but for the quality on offer it is a real steal!
In every department of the hotel the staff were highly trained and very professional. There was a genuine culture of helpfulness. I arrived having managed to forget my credit cards, and the owner was kind enough to lend me some Euros, even though she didn't know me from Adam. Lord bless you, Ma'am!
No - try as I might, I still can't think of anything to fault. A wonderful retreat.
