The village

Roussillon, famed for its ochre quarries, looks like no other village. The colour of the village at sunset is incredible. Ochre mining took place on the edge of the village and was a major source of employment in bygone times. The quarries can now be visited and are just a short walk from the village. The village itself has a few tourist shops as well as a baker, butcher and several good cafes and restaurants - some with spectacular views. With its friendly locals and a colourful market on Thursday mornings, Roussillon is just how one imagines a Provencal village to be.
