to fully appreciate this hike you should choose a day with sunshine and I would recommend either morning or afternoon for a smooth light if you want to take pictures. There is a small fee. no dangerous spots, easy also with smaller children - nevertheless attention is always necessary.

Le Sentier des Ocres La Provence has been almost a dreamed-mythical area of France since I read enthusiastically all books and novels from famous British writer Peter Mayle. Lets say that he was responsible, in part, of the renewal of interest on Provence, not only for British, but for people from all over the world. La Provence is not just... More

We hiked around this amazing scenery left behind after the quarry mining of ochre which provides colour pigment to the local architecture. There are several different walks of varying lengths and fantastic views of a myriad of reds, yellows, oranges, beige and browns. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

Highly recommend the long walk. It really showcases ochre and the colors through the different areas. Nice signs explain some of the history and uses of ochre and its significance. Beautiful areas and just a very peaceful walk. I would suggest going earlier when it is a little quieter (a couple tours were coming when I was leaving a little... More

The path through these hills is easy to navigate and well worth the visit. You will get some great photos among the orange and yellow hills. Stop in the town after your late morning walk for lunch. Plenty of small restaurants from which to choose.

If you are lucky enough to see these cliffs glowing gold, orange and red in the late afternoon sun, you will never forget it. Wear shoes that are comfortable for hiking and that can get dirty.

This path is a nice way to exit the rush from the village and enjoy the shadows of the trees. You will also learn a lot about how colours come from natural ingredients and the impact they had on the economy. The colour constrats between the red, green and blue is superb!

Le Sentier des Ocres, Roussillon is waiting for you with a beautiful landscape with the red clay walls and with the village sitting on the rocks. The clay walls are rich in deposits of ochre pigments and show many nuances of red color. It is worth to take a promenade here, both on the paths of the hills and in... More
