The setting of the Aosta Valley mountains. A place of relaxation and tranquillity. A real family home. Welcome to Angelo, Irma, Andrea and Stefania Celesia’s hotel.
“Hospitality, helpfulness, availability, simplicity, authenticity. Welcome to our home!”
Angelo and Irma’s home was never empty at weekends. Friends, family, acquaintances, there was always someone to host. This was a real pleasure for the couple who in 1979 decided to combine business with pleasure. This is how the Chalet-Hotel Eco Wellness Hotel Notre Maison, The Originals Relais came into being in 1979 in the small village of Cogne in the heart of Gran Paradiso national park (Aosta Valley). Their own paradise with a hotel and restaurant. Their son Andrea and daughter Stefania grew up and joined the venture. The family business has evolved (construction of a solarium cabin, enlargement of the hotel, installation of a spa). It has earned its 3 stars and its reputation as a real corner of paradise that respects both its guests and the surrounding nature. In 2015, a biomass system was installed to ensure the site is self sufficient for heating and electricity. The family has also introduced a shuttle service using an electric car. Come to the Italian Alps and enjoy this eco wellness hotel.
