  • The azure blue of the sky, the green of the trees and the color ochre, you walk into a table of Cézanne

  • Place to summarize by: "lives up to its name!" I thought the Provençal Colorado was a good tourist and in the end, we found a place with amazing landscape, with some resemblances sometimes of American landscapes.

  • Parking €5, two courses one of 1 hour (2 / 3km) and one 2 h 15 (4 / 5km). Plan backpack with bottle and basketball. On-site there is a snack bar. Really beautiful landscape.

  • Very nice trail. We would recommend to do it very early or very late in the day as it can be very crowdy and tourists run all over the place without any respect for the site. There's more erosion due to tourist then due to water...
  • The colorful hills here are great too look at, albeit. If visiting during the summer however, go early to avoid the heat and keep in mind the signs pointing out the danger of fire.
  • Very funny day out. The place is really worth the parking price. Best at sunset
  • So hot place...
  • Some very interesting formations, the shortest hike is ~1h light roundtrip, worth doing it!
