This village should be visited by everyone who loves beauty. The setting and colors of the earth are matched by those of the town, a protected monument for 80 yr.

Rustic, colorful hilltop town visible from long distance as its red-ocher cliffs and village structures set it off quite well. The town itself is much like others in Provence---small shops, wonderful cafes and restaurants, fantastic views of the countryside and warm ' engaging residents.

We kept seeing this village from a distance as we drove around Provence, since the red-rocked cliffs are hard to miss. We finally made it here on market day and thoroughly enjoyed the town. While the market is small compared to many others in the area, there are plenty of shops, art galleries and cafes to compensate. The views of... More

Accidentally ended up in the quaint village by driving around and exploring in Provence, and what a find! It's absolutely stunning! The ocre mounts all around the place as well as the colors of the houses in the village are just inspirational for any artist. You feel like erecting your easel, getting a canvas out and start to paint. Loved... More

First of all the red rocks stick right out and for a moment, I thought I was in Sedona, AZ. Beautiful little town, with lavender fields nearby. Wandered into a little art gallery and bought two beautiful posters which the artist was so gracious to sign.

Roussillon - A beautiful village worth visiting. Sentier des Ocres is a natural park of jagged cliffs of ocre beside the village of Roussillon. A walking tour of the park should take well under an hour. This is a tour worth taking. The striking reddish-yellowish colors of the sand take your breath away. It leaves you amazed. But, please do... More

A creator beyond standards. An original and soothing work of art. Technic XVII Century, sand, steel, naturals pigments of Roussillon in Provence. Paintings on canvas in harmony with the ''ocre'' city, Roussillon.
