Roussillon the Most Colorful Village in the Luberon

Contributor blog post by Michel:

I don’t think we’ve ever gone to Provence without going to Roussillon a village in the Luberon about 35 miles southeast of Sablet, and we certainly were going to make sure neighbors Bob, Darlene, Ed and Gwen got there. We love the colorful houses in Roussillon, tinted by ocher that used to be mined here; this makes Roussillon unique compared to other villages in the area.

…Continue reading here to discover (in Michel’s photos) the reason you want to visit this village and the Sentier des Ocres (Ocher trail).  Ocher is naturally present in the area (mined nearby) and the beautiful perched village of Roussillon benefits from this phenomena with its arresting multi-colored cliffs. Read Michel’s article to discover the 17 shades of ocher and the village in photos.
