We ventured to this address to check out the hiking trails and enjoyed our day walking through the ocher cliffs. There are a few inclines on the trails and it was a pleasant home overall. There is also an elaborate ropes course in the area which looked like fun.

A great place to take visitors or children to show them where the colours used to decorate the exteriors of many houses in Provence, especially in Roussillon, have their origin. The ochre mines have left a series of quarries and cliffs which are impressive in their size and the variety of formations and colours left after the activity of man... More

When you think of Provençal countryside, it's generally about open fields and vineyards, not mountainous terrain. But what a surprise this park turned out to be. The trails aren't too challenging for the experienced hiker so it's worth the time to experience the wonderful and unique views along the trails here. When we visited, we encountered not a sole, hence... More

We went with my ife mid April. Tempearture was perfect. We have followed the shortest track, which is not very sign posted, but at the end you are to see one of the most incredible scenary I've seen. The colors are absolutely amazing, especially when it is sunny. I highly recommend this place, especially for young children, as it is... More

If you have ever wanted to go to Colorado, first consider going there and you will get a fair overview of what it looks like. I recommend going in the morning to start around 9 am. It takes about 3 hours and you will avoid the mass of people then.

The orches here were colourful and the walking trails very pleasant, not the arduous sort of climb. The rustrel village itself has a few shops but nothing fantastic. There's a toilet near the car park but you need to get the key from the shop. The car park attendent seems a little dodgy so don't wind down your window too... More

There are a couple of option to enjoy the ochres in Provence. I recommend Le Colorado Provencal for being the most authentic. It is worth driving to Rustrel from Roussillon or wherever you stay if you want to enjoy the ochres in nature. You only pay for parking and get three options for your trip. I would recommend the second... More

Provence's Colorado Rustrel area is well worth visiting. It's far from being on the Colorado USA scale but it's a delightful taster of it! The range of colours of the soil, the small pinnacles, the lovely walks through the Colorado and through the surrounding woodlands are really pleasant and enjoyable. It's easy to get to and the only charge you... More

The morning after a refreshing rainfall was a perfect time to enjoy the cool, crisp air and the vibrant colors of this unique area in Rustral. After a small parking fee and with a trail map in hand, we chose the blue trail which is the easiest and shortest. After a short walk over a stream and an aquaduct, we... More

A 4 euro parking fee enabled an easy access to the colourful rocks at Rustrel. There are 3 marked walks of different lengths and terrain and elevation. We chose the black 2 track which gave us a fantastic view over the coloured rocks which were lit up in the late morning sun. After a walk of about 40 minutes we... More
