Villa Roussillon - Location

The Location

Roussillon has an extraordinary palette of colours, testament to its past as a major ochre producer.

The house is right on the edge of Roussillon, one of the most stunning villages in France. Roussillon is a medieval hill-top village, known and loved for its amazing palette of ochre colours. It has all the amenities you need within 5 minutes/300 metres walk of the house: restaurants and cafes, grocery, bakery, butcher, doctor, pharmacy, small specialist stores, galleries and a weekly market.

Roussillon is one of the perched, hilltop villages that make the Luberon region of Provence such a fascinating place to visit. Other nearby hilltop villages include MenerbesGordesBonnieuxLacosteOppede-le-vieux, and Goult, all within 20 minutes.

There is a market in Roussillon on Thursday mornings, and a Luberon market in neighbouring villages every day of the week.

From this base you can explore the Luberon, its villages and markets, and close by you will find AvignonFontaine de VaucluseIsle sur la Sorgue, Les Baux de Provence, St Remy, Aix en Provence, Orange, Arles, Nimes, Marseille, the Camargue, Gorges du Verdon, to name just some of the great days out an easy drive away. The fishing village of Cassis on the Mediterranean is 90 minutes away, and the French Riviera 2-3 hours.
