“Spectacular colors delight. Where else are there such cliffs?”

Roussillon location / scooter rental
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Rousslllon for me was a delightful stop in Provence.

The reds , the oranges, the yellows of the cliffs provided vistas and camera views.
The price of entrance was small, the place clean, the walk about 1 hour provided wonderful impressions.

The city also provide wonderful colors and views.
A small farmers market had interesting displays.
My rating is a must see.
Reasons: The colors, the geology.

Afterwards, I hiked a few miles back to my hotel in the countryside. A most pleasant day.

Roussillon is billed as one of France's prettiest villages, if you believe the France Tourist Board. I made the mistake of believing it. Tourism is one of those paradoxes. It fuels economies, both local and national, but inevitably ruins the very essence of what draws people to it. There is an old Chinese Proverb which says: “It is the beautiful bird which gets caged”. And so I feel this is true of Roussillon. It has completely lost it's soul. It is like walking around a ghost village now infected by soulless tourist 'Art' shops and expensive food outlets. You get no sense that this is a French hill top village anymore, the cacophony of foreign languages drowns the local voices. It's in danger of becoming a Theme Park village sponsored by LEGO. What it must be like to live there during the 'season', I can only imagine. Having said that it probably gets it's life back in the winter months when all the tourists are skiing!! Beautiful village it maybe, but it ain't got soul
