Discover Névache, a charming mountain village in the Hautes Alpes

Population : 300 inh. - Altitude : 1,596 m.


Névache is a charming mountain village nestling in the heart of the high valley of La Clarée.
It is reached by taking a little road that runs along the banks of a pretty bubbling river, after passing through several hamlets with shingle roofs and old stones worn by time and the elements.

Névache Hautes Alpes

This enchanting valley is bucolic and peaceful, wild and protected, planted with fir trees and surrounded by rocky cliffs and peaks.
It is a wonder of nature, a paradise for cyclists and anglers, and also has some interesting heritage worth discovering: the church of Saint Claude de Val-des-Prés, wall paintings at the hamlet of Plampinet (16th century), numerous sundials… 

Also don't forget the nearby col de l'Izoard (2,360m), a Mecca for cyclists, offering a superb panoramic view from its orientation table, over the mountains of the Briançon area and the Queyras area.
In this valley blessed by the gods sits Névache, its wooden chalets adorned with drying balconies and awnings, with nearby fountains and bread ovens, on gently sloping meadows where horses trot.

Here, verdant lawns and tumultuous mountain streams with crystal clear water and jagged peaks share the landscape in total harmony.
Ideal for Green holidays, with the pure mountain air, sunny and dry. You could even "make hay" with the local farmers!
