Time ago something magic must be happened in this small area, turned today into an incredible and colorful itinerary that will paint your feet with all the ocher shades. If you are in the environs don’t miss the visit and save some time to have shopping and lunch in one of the small bars all around the site. If possible... More

My wife and I visited here with our two kids (age 8 and 10). We made sure to arrive in Rousillion early to ensure we got nearby parking and to avoid the overall tourist chaos. We deliberately more dark clothing (no whites!). We also made sure to let the kids know not to touch anything! We found a parking lot... More

Scenic beyond words folks! Bring your camera. Postcard perfect. Watch the cliffs, the fall is a loulou! Narrow roads so drive carefully. Parking is never easy to find nor navigate so go early day.

Get there as early as you can because it gets CROWDED ! We went there at the opening and had a great time walking around the trails without a lot of people around but when we left 2rs later it was starting to get packed. You have the choice between the short trail and the long one, long one is... More

Lovely attraction - a shady walk in some alien rock formations. Best not to wear shoes that will be stained by the red powder though. If you get a day with blue sky, the reds blues and greens together make for beautiful pictures. There is a short and long walk, with some steep bits. Babies in buggies will need to... More

I am very interested in painting so going to Roussillon and seeing the natural Ocre all around me in this pretty little village was fascinating. They no longer mine it here but Red ocre is mined in Valcluse and you can buy it in a very sweet paint shop in the village. There is also a Museum about the mining... More

One thing to note - your shoes and any full-length trousers/dresses will get very very dusty! But don't miss this fascinating and colorful geological area.

The ochre footpath allows you to see the world's biggest vein of ochre. Watch your footing on parts of the path, and if slightly steep climbs are difficult for you, take your time. But don't miss this fascinating and colorful geological area.

Well worth the entrance fee to walk around. It actually feels a bit 'other-worldly' like you're on another planet with the colours and the landscape. The colours are indeed stunning and although you won't see the blues and purples when you walk around it is something very special and unusual. One thing to note - your shoes and any full-length...
