Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 88 photos
Today a "classic" shot from picturesque Roussillon, in the Luberon.
The little village quite unique and extremely photogenic because of the surrounding ochre cliffs. The colored earth has been used for ages for pottery and paint pigments. Today most of the buildings in the village are made from colored local stones, or painted in ochre colors, or are covered with those pastel earth layers.
And try October for a visit to Roussillon, it's a lot more peaceful than in the summer...
