Beautiful :)

This little trip (1~3h) is very satisfying.. The colors are beautiful and the shapes unexpected.. To do ! The price is very reasonable to protect this place (5€ per car)

This was a great hit with our 3 kids of 11, 10 and 5! Get there early! We paid €5 at entrance to car park, and were provided a map. We were there just after 8am and the car park was empty. You can get lots of great pictures with no other people in them. We did the 4km trek... More

Had gone to roussillon prior to this disappointing outing. The trails are poorly marked not nearly the beauty of the Ochres of Rousillon, Much more of a difficult hike , and less rewarding.

Very much worth the visit. The blue route is fairly easy but the orange one much more demanding but also more rewarding. The car park is good (with picnic tables - you don't want to carry too much with you, though you will need plenty of water) as are the toilets.

If you're going to be in the Roussillon area, drive over to this park for even more of the same, but more accessible. You'll need 1 hour for the smallest walk and 2+ for the longer one. The park is free but a gate keeper will extract 5€ to park your car and provide you a map. It's worth it.... More

This place is one of the reasons why I fell in love with the Vaucluse. The scent, the bright air and the terrific colours. An absolute must-see! And in my opinion much better (and less busy) than Roussilion. Tip: if you pass the 3 walkingroutes and follow the dirt road to the right, you'll find a short-cut after about 150... More

The Colorado provencal makes for a relatively short but beautiful walk - in fact there are two options, a short walk (one hour or so including photo stops, and twice as much). Fairly crowded.

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
