We had driven past the entrance to Colorado Provençal a few times-had no idea what was there! We thought it was a picnic place so packed a picnic and paid our 5 Euro entrance fee! (5 euros is all it cost-in the uk it would...More

Some quite astonishing sand and rock colours here, ranging from the more usual orange/yellow ochres, to pinks, purples and greens. The long route is definitely worth doing, as it climbs up to give a superb aerial view of the rock features and colours. Note that...More

Beautiful colors of land. Nice paths to walk through. The short trail leads you through the cliffs and the long one takes you to beautiful view points. Relatively easy walk. Take special care during hot days.

The rocks are an amazing colour and although similar to those at Roussillon there is much more room to explore here. The entrance fee with car is 5 euros which is very reasonable and you get a map to follow the 2 walking trails. It...More

We stayed 20 minutes from here so had to visit. So glad we did. We have also been to Roussillon and enjoyed both equally. The kids enjoyed having the freedom here to run and explore. We did the shorter walk but still plenty to see.

After hiking into the area from the parking lot, we were thrilled to see such beautiful, multi-colored rock formations. Our only regret was the fact that we didn't have the time to hike through the entire park--but next time.

Nice walk in stunning landscapes. Can get quite hot but has forest and shady places to take a picnic or stop for a bit. Take good shoes . Definitively worth going, absolutely stunning.

I was very surprised with very nice red stone shapes, if any possibility I will come again. Very easy car access and parking, only remember to bring a water with you, very hot weather and of course no shops inside park. Maybe it is normal,...More

We are always looking for exercise opportunities while in France-so much to eat and drink, and you must stay active or go home very unfit. This is a great 1.45 hour hike-best that you have some hiking experience and good shoes, but not extremely strenuous....More

We loved our visit to Roussillon ochre Park, so came here for a hike. Just to compare the two parks. I liked the town Roussillon way more than Rustrel. The park in Roussillon has more dramatic shapes. The Colorado Provencal Park(CPP) has more colors. We...More

I am not sure if you will get this in time, but the access would be difficult with a wheelchair - there are no proper paths - just dirt.

It is open all the time - there really isn't any tourist structures around the walk.
