Located in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes department, just 20 kilometers from the town of Briancon, the Névache Valley covers 19,000 hectares and is made up of seven villages, which can be explored in every direction (Plampinet, Roubion, Sallé, Fortville, Le Cros...). Popular with experienced hikers and lovers of grand vistas, the Névache Valley is also famous for the multitude of ceps that can be found during the month of October. Ideal for enjoying the fall and picking the mushrooms that fill most of the forests, this wonderful place should not be missed.
At a loss for what to do this weekend, and want to get away? Don’t delay and head for Névache in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. Dress appropriately, take a basket and wander around in search of cep mushrooms, alone, with friends or family, for a special moment in the great outdoors. Mushrooms are the stars of the fall season; ceps delight the taste buds and can be prepared in so many ways, each more appetizing than the last: fried, in an omelet, or as an accompaniment to risotto and gnocchi. So many recipes are possible; you just need to pray for a good harvest.
