At the foot of the property, a trail unknown from tourists sinks into a pine forest and offers a charming scenery with its glistening cliffs for great romantic walks at sunset.
You can discover Roussillon by foot, an enchanting village of ochre with its traditional colored coated houses, its numerous galeries of art, small shops with provençal items, and restaurants. At the top of the village, the Saint Michel church and its frontage dated from the 17 century is located near a cliff where you can admire a sumptuous panoramic view on the landscapes of Provence.
You can also discover the remarkable Ochre Trail (sentiers des ocres)with its colors from yellow to purple which tell us that Ochre has been used since prehistoric times, and was mined by the Romans during the era of the Roman settlement of Provence. However, ochre only became a widespread, industrial product in the late 18th century when Roussillon native Jean-Etienne Astier put forward the idea of washing the ochre-laden sands to extract the pure pigment. Today, though natural ochre faces strong competition from synthetic pigments, it remains unrivalled for use in certain applications.
In Roussillon you can also learn about the industrial history of ochre in the area by visiting the Ochre and Colour Conservatory “Conservatoire des ocres et de la couleur” in the former Mathieu factory whom offer tours, classes and information regarding the use of ochre.
Located in one of the three villages forming the "golden triangle" of Luberon, La Médiévale du Luberon provides the perfect base from which to explore Luberon, Provence and the Midi, this land with a rich provençal identity which architectural heritage, gastronomy, hand-crafted products appeal the tourists all over the world.
You also have access to the big living room with its great sofa and fireplace and the bar where fresh drinks are at your disposal. In the morning the breakfast is personalised according to your wishes (croissant, pain au chocolat, cheese, home made pancake…)
