Landmark Tourist Spot
Roussillon in Provence, France, is known by many people for the art and culture that enthrals visitors. However, in this part of France the natural geological beauty is understated quite often. The vast landscapes of ochre soils amidst the mountainous regions is an experience that will make you swoon. Chausee des Geants refers to these metaphorical fields of gold. Roussillon is not a historical site, but its foundations have seen centuries of history through, and the art culture is quite popular here. Make Chausee des Geants part of your personalized Gordes itinerary using our Gordes itinerary planner.

  • Out to do if you're in the corner especially Roussillon is a charming little village. The most beautiful of the visit being at the beginning of the course. You take full eyes.

  • This beautiful little park offers a nice walk through the ochre rock formations surrounded with forest. In former times it was here with donkeys from the kleurstofhoudende ground to end up as a dye in paint used to be. Many a great painter will paint used with dyes from this area. In addition, the village of Rousillon a gem.

  • Little nice, often shady walk, the orange cliffs overlooking, ocher which contrast with the green of the pines. I was especially reminded Bryce Canyon in a lot more small, of course. Advice: we arrived this morning around 9:30, there was very little world. At our exit, about 40 minutes later, there was crowd. Then you can take a walk in the streets of the village of Roussillon, very picturesque with its narrow streets.
