Walks in strange desert scenery in former ocher-mining quarries with yellow & red rock formations. However, Southern France is well characterized by its colorful streets, delicious foods and the Mediterranean Riviera, it is linked to Southwest America for some reason, unless you reach the' Colorado Provencal' just a few minutes away from the medieval villages and abbeys of the 12th century. The southeastern region of Provence in France is almost entirely covered with calcareous rocks while the drive through this region provides amazing scenic beauty with brilliantly colored vertical rocks spreading around 75 acres. The rocks are an amazing color and although there is much more room to explore here, similar to those at Roussillon. The entrance fee for a car is 5 euros which is very reasonable and you get a map to follow the 2 walking trails. It can be quite hot in the open areas on a sunny day, but the walk takes you through shady woodland as well. The end of the longer walk is a bit steep and rocky so good walking shoes are best. Allow the longer walk for about 2 hours. There is a lovely little cafe for drinks and ice cream on the site, which was very welcome.
