Roussillon Hotels

Roussillon is a tiny town based in the green Vaucluse department of France’s southeastern Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region. This charming haven gives a true taste of rural life in Provence, being surrounded by sweeping vineyards and cherry orchards. The old-world buildings, grouped on a tree-studded hill, are washed pink-red, reflecting the large ochre deposits discovered in the nearby quarries. Spend lazy days unwinding at the classic cafés, or take a wild adventure through the adjoining Regional Park of Luberon.

Things to see

Before you set out to explore the natural wonders that await in Roussillon’s surrounding countryside, spend the bright blue-sky morning seeing the town’s top sights. Start at the towering 19th century clock-tower, an orange-tinted stone structure that spears the village skyline with its gorgeous wrought-iron belfry - known as a campanile. After, pop along to the Conservatory of Ochres and Colour, an intriguing and informative museum based in an old ochre-processing factory. This fun and fascinating museum tells the story of Roussillon and the region’s ochre industry, how it was quarried, and its importance to the area’s history. There are also kid-friendly workshops and activities, where they can paint, play, and learn. After, head out and see the ochre itself at the Giant’s Causeway, a natural stretch of spiky deep-orange ochre cliffs that wind by the village. Either take a relaxed 30 minute stroll, or turn it into an invigorating day-hike through the pines, red sands, and rocky paths of Luberon.
