Alan Rogers Review of Camping les Bonnets
Neffes is a little alpine village on the Route des Villages Perchés, close to Gap, the capital of the Hautes-Alpes and, at 750 metres above sea level, France’s highest préfecture. The campsite is in a good location if you are looking for a convenient overnight stop near Gap or for touring the local region. Pitches were of a good size, flat and level and had tree shade; all had E.H.U. they were not well tended, and I was the only visitor on the night I stayed.
Facilities were housed in a central block and were very clean but very dated. However, when I visited in early September, the bar and restaurant area were closed, the pool area had grass growing between the paving stones, and the area looked uncared for and neglected. At one time, this would have been a beautiful site in a great location, but it is in need of serious, some serious T.L.C.
This site is more comparable to a municipal site than a commercial; however, if you accept that a pitch was just 13 euros and the location outstanding, you will get an excellent peaceful night's sleep, be surrounded by some fantastic scenery and have clean, sanitary facilities with hot water. It comes in as an excellent value.
Gap is an interesting market town, full of shops, restaurants and terrace cafés and the area provides a wealth of opportunities for walking, biking, mountain activities and white-water sports.
Just north of Gap, the Domaine de Charence has extensive parkland and gardens, including a collection of about 1,500 varieties of old roses, and the former stables are now the home to the Conservatoire Botanique National Alpin whose herbarium houses 100,000 specimens of alpine plants. As well as exploring the attractive hilltop villages, visitors can follow the Route des Vins and discover some of the little-known wines of the Hautes-Alpes, possibly also stopping at a wayside restaurant to enjoy the distinctive local cuisine.
