One of the most Beautiful villages in France, Roussillon

I think I left my heart in Provence, a beautiful place

One of the most beautiful villages in France, Roussillon.  

The village and the Ochre trail boasts breath taking hues of ochre- reds and yellows.  Set  in the southern edge of the Plateau de Vaucluse, Roussillon is really a pretty hilltop village you would want to spend an afternoon or a day just taking in its beauty.  Tip, also beautiful to see the colours in the  setting sun.

The Ochre Trail that is just a few steps from the village is mesmerising  The ochre-red hills amongst the deep green pine forest is truly worth a visit.  We went with our then 11 month old and 3 year old toddlers, and they loved the colours, and the red sand that coloured their hands.

This brings back such wonderful memories…..  Provence is one of those places I would not mind going over and over again.

Where is that place  for you?
