It is special, to find a place like this in the Provence. But: you have to be as early as possible, parking is expensive and rare in the area, take a picknick, food is either not easy to be found (verything is crowded) and expensive...More

Not to be missed really, wearing good walking shoes is a must though. There are two choices of walks, one short and one long. The discovery of theses nuances of ochres was a wonderful surprise. The site is very well maintained and preserved. Don't forget...More

Question: What attraction in France costs less to enter than the car-park fee to park your car? Answer: This! Yup! €2.50 will get you into the Sentier des Ocres (€3 to park the car) and it’s up to you whether you choose the 35 minute...More

Access is via a path which is wheelchair / push chair friendly up to the first vantage point. The rest is steep inclines and descents so take a drink with you. The walks are 30 mins or 60 mins and the views are breathtaking. Entrance...More

This little walk in the colorful ochres of Roussillon was a highlight of our stay in Roussillon. Right during the heatwave, it was very dusty and very hot obviously. I would definitely recommend good shoes, a hat, some sunglasses, and some sun cream if going...More

Need good footwear as it is quite undulating and dusty. Make sure it is not too hot as it is a bit enclosed.

This is a must see in Roussillon for up close views of the beautiful ochre colors. The entry is located at the top of the hill at the top of the town with built in steps taking you down to the gorge. There are nice...More

This reasonable hike - even for those who are more physically challenged - gives the best views of the ocher cliffs. Some parts of the trail are easy and some are rockier. Also you can choose a shorter trail without a lot of steps. NIce...More

C'est interdit mais vous pourrez trover beaucoup de beaux lieux tout au tour, dans le village ou dans la campagne. Les paysages sont très jolis, vous pouvez picniquer aussi près de la lavande.
