Beautiful and impressive! Arriving in the "Sahara" after a beautfiful walk in the forest, the scene is breath-taking... Absolutely impressive and magic! The children (3 & 7) were exstatic. This is such an original place and as a photographer, turned out absolutely fabulous. A must do for families in the area. But before noon as the heat gets difficult in... More

this is a regional Park. These types of parks are common in France. It has a place for camping. And it is easily accessible. There are beautiful trails that are well maintained throughout the area. What is interesting about this area is it is a abandon ocher mine. Ocher is a red – orange mineral that was used as a... More

I have been there twice. It's always a pleasure. You have the choice between three trails with different level of difficulty so no matter your fitness level you'll be fine. The price is really reasonable (5 Euro per car no matter how many people in the car). My biggest advice is to get there as early as you can in... 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

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 guided tours which is unnecessary in my opinion: The routes are signposted very well and you won't have any trouble finding your way.... 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
