Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Bellevue Hotel & Spa, Cogne

The Hotel Bellevue is located in Cogne, a delightful mountain town at about 1500 metres above sea level, nestling in a valley under the shadow of the Gran Paradiso mountain and about 17 miles south from Aosta. The town has kept its original mountain character and is approached through stunning mountain scenery as you climb from the Aosta valley. The Hotel Bellevue is an excellent base for holidays almost all year round. The area does have some skiing in the winter but is not a predominantly ski resort. The main attraction would be for a leisurely stay to enjoy the mountain scenery and to benefit from the leisure facilities of the Hotel Bellevue. The Hotel Bellevue is an exceptional find and a superb addition to our personal selection of hotels. A four star hotel and member of Relais & Chateaux, the Hotel Bellevue has the external appearance of an alpine chalet, but as you enter the hotel its real magic becomes apparent. Combining an understated elegance with a warm, homely atmosphere, the feel is very much that of a private house, decorated with a stylish rusticity, family and local artifacts and original paintings. Great wooden ceilings and panelled walls feature in profusion throughout the building. The bedrooms vary in size and shape and are all furnished individually in the same cosy style as the rest of the hotel. Nearly all rooms have a balcony, some overlooking the town at the front and some overlooking the valley and Gran Paradiso to the rear. Six new rooms have been built, all with a fire-place, jacuzzi and balcony. The Hotel Bellevue has three restaurants; these include a gourmet restaurant, a typical local restaurant, and the Brasserie du Bon Bec, located nearby in the main square of Cogne. There is a well stocked wine cellar with local wine and wines from all over the world. Lunch can be enjoyed, weather permitting, on an outside terrace with panoramic views. The garden has sun loungers where you can sunbathe amid glorious mountain scenery. Inside there is a swimming pool, sauna and beauty centre. The hotel is also particularly good for families and there are rooms that take a third and fourth bed. We recommend the Hotel Bellevue very highly and suggest it as a holiday in its own right for relaxing in the mountains or as a two centre combination perhaps with the Italian Lakes.

About Italian Alps

An Expressions tailor-made holiday in the Italian Alps is a hiker's Promised Land in summer, and in winter the region shelters some of the finest ski resorts in Europe with some of the best snow in recent seasons to match. Bordering Austria to the North and France and Switzerland to the west, the Italian Alps is a pastoral paradise of edelweiss-covered meadows, terraced vineyards and ancient farming villages. Framed by a dramatic backdrop of towering summits and ridges, the Italian Alps reaches its zenith on the border with France, rising to a height of 15,782ft at the snow-capped summit of Monte Bianco - Mont Blanc. Perhaps the most spectacular section of the Italian Alps is the Aoasta Valley, crowned by huge peaks, including the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, Gran Paradiso and Monte Rosa, with an extensive network of lifts and cable-cars to whisk skiers up the pistes in winter, and walkers up to spectacular trails in summer. Lower down, the Aoasta Valley's ski resorts are connected by cross-country skiing trails, fantastic for walkers in summer. A playground for outdoor adventurers, the area also has some of the best mountain-biking trails in Europe. To the east are the Dolomites, to the southeast is the Piemonte region, whilst further south are the Italian Lakes. The proximity to these different Italian regions makes the Italian Alps a fabulous summer or winter holiday destination.

Highlights of the Italian Alps

Hiking and skiing in the Aoasta Valley; the annual autumn Alba Truffle festival, with more than 40 taking place in various towns and villages in Piemonte. Some Piemonte guesthouses and hotels can also arrange for you to go truffling with a local hound; the baroque piazzas and palaces of Turin, where the Fiat car factory is an interesting visitor attraction in its own right; the Italian Lakes north of Milan, such as Lake Maggiore, Como, and lovely little Orta, which has a Benedictine monastery right in the middle; boat trips on Lake Maggiore to visit the Borromean Islands; the beautiful hill town of Bergamo, with a funicular railway up to Bergamo Alto to visit its stunning 15th century chapel; the mediaeval village of Arca on the upper reaches of the Sarca River Valley; boat tours of Lake Lugano; spectacular views from Monte Mottarone above Stresa on Lake Maggiore, reached by cable car; national parks such as the Stelvio National Park north of Orta and the Parco Nazionale della Val Grande above Verbania on Lake Maggiore; Milan, with its magnificent gothic cathedral, famous La Scala opera house and 19th century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, perhaps the most elegant shopping arcade in the world; Verona's annual opera festival as well as its sights, including the Romanesque church of San Zeno, the Renaissance Loggia del Consiglio and the Roman Arena.

Travel around the Italian Alps

Trains and buses connect Milan and Verona with the villages and ski resorts to the north, as well as the lakes of Lombardy. As with all trains and buses in Italy, the service is fairly efficient and relatively cheap, and buses in particular are a good way of getting between villages once in the mountains themselves. However, as it often requires several changes to reach smaller, remoter destinations, by far the best way to explore this area is by hire-car, which we include with all our holidays to the Alps.
