Must do.

Nice walk through the woods and ocre scenery. Fortunately the weather was not so good since I can imagine it will be rather hot in the sun.

If, after following the Sentier des Ocres in Roussillon you look for more, this is the place. This location is much larger, wilder and less frequented than Roussillon’s. After parking our car (EUR 5) and getting a map, we took the longest suggested route and met less than a dozen other hardy souls. The views are a bit more spaced... More

Took the children here on a cloudy day and we all enjoyed it immensely. It was 5€ per car, well worth it. There was a trickle of a river which then ran into a rill, it was very clear and very cold. The cliffs in shades from dark to light ochre were very impressive. The children had a fantastic time... More

Once we worked out where to go, we got to see some very impressive scenery. We arrived late though and were thoroughly confused about where to go - there seemed to be three walking trails, and there was no differentiation between the length of any of the walks on any of the markers around. On top of that, a lot... More

Enjoyed our walk. Followed the three hour circuit but did it a lot faster. If you were pushed for time you could do twenty minutes of the orange , three hour circuit up to a view point and then retrace your steps. Paths vary from smooth to rocky.

I was very exited to visit this place, because I have seen so many pics and good notes about. It's very interesting and amazing, absolutely unexpected. The main part of the way is covered with red sand, so wear proper clothes and shoes: those will be red at the end! You have to pay only the parking ticket (about 5€... More

Beautiful, feels like you're in Arizona when you're actually in Provence. I would suggest going before 9 am as all the tourists usually get there at 10 am. So you can get some nice pictures without having to worry about other people everywhere. Head straight to 'Sahara' on the map and you can later go around the trail after seeing... More

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
