In an authentic 18th-century mountain chalet at the heart of our "Gran Paradiso Springs" Spa, we offer a romantic treatment for couples called Cleopatra's Bath. A glass of champagne is served during the treatment. After the bath we recommend resting for about twenty minutes on the straw bed.
You will each receive a 25-minute anti-stress massage.
Its name sounds straight out of a dream...as does its 80 m² space that makes it ideal for an unforgettable stay. Its 180° views over the Sant’Orso fields and the Gran Paradiso glacier unfold before your very eyes. But the star of the show is one of the two bathrooms. Take a bath on a projecting glass balcony that makes you feel as if you're at one with nature. Its ingenious design allows you to enjoy the landscape as you soak in a nice hot bath!
The cheese cellar is the domain of Roberto, our master cheese maker. This is where the best cheeses from our region and the Italian Alps are ripened, and it also houses cheeses from the Parma region and other treasures from southern Italy.
The wine cellar is run by our sommelier, Rino. It boasts nearly 2,000 labels: great traditional names of wine culture which are renowned throughout the world sit side-by-side with equally appreciable wines from smaller and lesser known vineyards.
Once a week, Rino organises a wine tasting.
The Cogne Valley offers countless walks and excursions that allow you to discover the flora and fauna of Gran Paradiso National Park.
