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

A must when visiting near the Luberon mountains. This Colorado is not far from Apt. A choice of 3 walks. We chose the 2 hr. Steep climb to begin with walking over rocks. Our 4 yr old had no problems what so ever running and jumping "up" the hill. Do wear appropriate foot wear,especially if its been raining. Definitely do... More

A really original landscape in Provence. Beautiful colours, and an easy walk for families with kids.

Stunning concretoions, colors, easy walk and a bit of climbing if you so wish. Kids wear Indian (ocre) make up and slide down effrotless from dunes :-) Make sure you wear clothes which agree to remain yellow forever: dust is so thin that even the best washing does not get rid of it. Then get to Roussilon and its musuem... More

We followed other reviews on Tripadvisor's advice and went to Colorado Provencal with friends. The parking was not open so we parked for free and were able to walk at our leisure. It was a little muddy in parts from recent rains so I would check your footwear to be sure that this is water-friendly. We had previously done the... More

As Roussillon was closed, we were suggested to visit this site. Called the car park and checked the opening times. We were told to take it easy: he was going to wait for us. Parking was 4 euros inclusive of the entrance to the site. We were given a map and the advice to see at least part of the... More
