The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Roussillon is located in the spectacular Luberon region of Provence in South France. With lavender fields, vineyards and orchards dotting the landscape and numerous hill-top villages with characteristic stone houses and busy Provençal markets selling fresh local produce, this is Provence at its most authentic and varied.. Imagine sitting at an outdoor café under the shade of a plane tree sipping wine as you listen to the accordion playing and watching the people go by.
Visit the picturesque l'Isle sur la Sorgue with its old water wheels and restaurants lining the River Sorgue and hunt bargains in its hundreds of antique shops. Go to the source of the River Sorgue which is a deep underground spring located in a narrow valley at Fontaine de Vaucluse. Marvel at the Palais des Papes and the Pont in Avignon. Enjoy people watching in one of the cafes along Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence and visit Paul Cezanne's studio which is maintained as it was when he died. Near Gordes, visit Sénanque Abbey, an active Cistercian monastery built in the 12th century. In Ménerbes, visit the La Citadelle wine estate, which is home to the unusual Corkscrew Museum. Enjoy a stroll in the Cedar Forest in Bonnieux and watch the story of how lavender essential oil is distilled in copper stills at the Musee de la Lavande in Coustellet. And don't forget to enjoy the world famous wines from Gigondas, Châteauneuf du Pape and Beaumes de Venise. For the more active, there are plenty of outdoor activities for the whole family including hiking and cycling in the Luberon, canoeing on the Sorgue River, accrobranching and horse-riding.
Roussillon is ranked amongst France's most beautiful villages and is located in the heart of one of the world's biggest ochre deposits. Ochre is a natural pigment which was previously used in the production of paints and other materials and its presence in the rock bathes the village of Roussillon and the surrounding countryside in a distinctive palette of blazing colours which change with the light.
A visit to the disused ochre quarry is a must to experience the "Martian" like landscape and its contrast with the surrounding lush vegetation. The "Conservatoire des ocres" offers exhibitions and workshops where you can learn more about the history of ochre, its mining in the Vaucluse region and its uses.
You can also visit the eleventh century parochial church of Saint-Michel, the ancient ramparts, the nineteenth-century bell tower; the castle of Saint-Jean and the mill.
Walking up to the Castrum at the top of the village affords a wonderful panoramic view of a number of famous hill-top villages, the Grand Luberon and the snow-covered peaks of Mont Ventoux, beyond.
Market day is Thursday morning.
Ochre Day celebrations take place on Ascension Day and the cliffs are illuminated during the summer months.
