“Sant'Orso Hotel in Cogne, Italy”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We discovered a slice of heaven in Cogne, Italy, an enchanting village in the Italian Alps. The moment we arrived at the Sant'Orso, a charming, well-appointed, and cozy hotel, the owner and manager, Filippo Gerard welcomed us as if we were family. After we settled into our rooms, Filippo personally gave us a guided tour of Cogne, an ancient, quaint village and gateway to the Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso. The setting is stunning! While nestled at the base of the Gran Paradiso snow-capped mountains, the Sant'Orso Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the village. Filippo is an attentive host. He and his staff give personalized care to their many guests. Filippo visits each table and takes his guests' dinner orders while describing the featured menu choices for that evening. The menu offers three new and enticing choices each night. Nearby vinyards provide superb wines which are produced in small quantities for local consumption.

We were in Cogne in late summer/early fall and the weather was delightful. There were outdoor activities including hiking, shopping and excursions to the Medieval city of Aosta known as the "Rome of the Alps." There is ample snow in winter for alpine and XC skiing, snow shoeing and a variety of outdoor activities.

A visit to Cogne in the Gran Paradiso National Park and a stay at the Sant'Orso Hotel is a must!

It is hard to imagine that this hotel is not number 1 in the Cogne Valley. We stayed in June/July 2012 for a wedding. The owners were above and beyond accommodating of all of our needs. The rooms were great- spacious and clean- and overlooked a phenomenal mountain range. Amazing playground for children. Surrounded by spectacular hiking trails. Without a question, we will be back. During our stay, owners were constructing an indoor pool. Looking forward to it when we return.

We were very pleased with this famiily run hotel. The rooms were very comfortable with balconies that overlooked the mountains. Fillipo was the manager and owner. He was very concerned about our comfort and did everything possible to make our stay exceptional.
The food service was also of very high quality and delicious.
Cogne is a small village and one can take evening walks through its charming streets. We would enjoy visiting again.

My wife and family - three young children - and I had a wonderful lunch here, at very reasonable prices, while on holiday in the region. The food was delicious, the service attentive and the views from the restaurant stunning ! My only complaint was that there was one young lady waitress who clearly could not care less, didn't know how to smile and who simply should not have been in the job...

Recently we took over the entirety of the Hotel Sant'Orso for my sister's wedding. I was expecting a village pension with long tables set up on a lawn, bowls of pasta and loaves of bread, "Antonia's Line"-style. Instead what we found was a casual-but-rich alpine lodge, upscale but downright cheap, which put on one of the most exquisite wedding feasts I've experienced in 50 years. Make sure you eat in the restaurant when you're there. The setting at the base of the village is ideal, with breathtaking alpine views and hiking trails outside the hotel door. The hosts, led by Phillipe and Ilenia (disappointingly not a couple :)), bent over backwards in every conceivable way. We were treated like dignitaries. The very best in hospitality is characterized here. The rooms are sizable and fresh and new with all amenities; the bathrooms too, and sparkling clean. Put yourself in the hands of this hotel and your visit to Cogne will remind you of being left with your favorite babysitter when your parents went away for the weekend.

The hotel is very cosy with lots of public spaces and 4 floors of rooms. The rooms are very well maintained and look impeccable, ours had a small balcony with a view on the beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful, no request is too much or too difficult. The food is very tasty and in abundance; the buffet for lunch and breakfast were varied and beautifully laid out. The hotel is building a spa facility with swimmingpool right now that will only add to the many reasons to stay there. We had a fantastic stay at the hotel and we hope to return there one day. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view across the alpine meadow to the Gran Paradiso park, preferably with a balcony...

We took an overnight trip from Torino with our 4 year old son. I'd like to say we chose the hotel http://www.cognevacanze.com/ORSO/hotel_cogne_4_stelle_cogne_ITA.asp because of its phenomenal location overlooking Gran Paradiso across a gorgeous alpine meadow (very true, and 5 years ago, this would have been the reason!), but in fact it was because the hotel bordered a huge playground full of children. You can use the playground without staying there, but we were tired, and this was an easy way for our 4 year old son to have fun while his parents took turns watching him. The hotel was lovely, staff were extremely helpful, and we definitely hope to return! I can't say enough nice things about this area in June. Hotel staff recommended some lovely hikes (one involving a cable car trip, big fun for our sun) as well as a side trip to a nature park filled with local animals. What a delight!
