Nice hike in a nice landscape

This has not been my first visit here... which I guess, is a good sign. There are 3 different hikes you can make which vary in their length. As far as I know, you can also book... read more

We drove to see the canyon, which a guidebook said had some hiking trails for experienced hikers. We never imagined there is no view at all UNLESS you are an experienced hiker -- or have time and desire to undertake the two-hour or three-hour hikes. (The one-hour hike has a view of s sandy cliff in an area named "Sahara"... More

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
