  • All the houses are painted in earth tones, in order to locate in this region the largest deposit of ochre mjundo. The view from the top of the village is a must ... Medieval and unijco site features small and beautiful alleys. As Gordes, a village for his all-too-attractive and interesting features. Recommend.

  • Very impressive and unique. Very close to the village which is also worth a visit as its also very special with the red colors of the buildings. Truly a must if you are within an hour drive here or so
  • Rich colours! I loved the smell of the pines as we walked through the well marked paths.
  • Nice trail. However you are not alone... The "ochres" are beautifull.

  • Great historic walk of the Ochre regoin
