  • Nice site, just a mini canyon. During the summer months, take into account the fire threat. You can choose between 2 circuits (large and small) when we visited the site was the Grand route closed for fire hazards. You will be always pointed out that there is a risk, so continue to pay attention

  • A beautiful walk in the middle of a multicolored landscape. We did the course by the gazebos: beautiful views, passages in the forest...

  • A nice visit with spectacular visions. Due to only fire the shorter route was open. But a nice ride of 2 h 00 offers itself to you.

  • Beautiful setting to take an easy hike. Parking is 5€ , but the site is free. Short hike is about 30 minutes and the longer hike is about 2 1/2 hours. I recommend the longer hike. Besides the hills of ochre it takes you around nice paths of trees and up on a ridge where you get a good view of all the ochre hills. I recommend going either in Spring or Fall and on a clear , sunny day. The blue sky really makes the colors of the ochre just jump out. Summer is too crowded and too hot. Great for all ages, but no strollers allowed.
  • Wonderful. However, be careful: the parking costs 5€ and it's forbidden to park your car nearby so it's at your own risk if you park somewhere else (try to find a hidden place)! And: it's not that big at all! But you can keep walking in the forest.
  • Impressive, but not worth the hails.
  • Great place to hike!
  • Really site to visite in the middle of nowhere.
