Ochre and orange are having a seasonal moment and no where else on the planet does the color orange like the village of Roussillon in Provence, France. Oranges, reds, yellows and even soft pinks cascade across the village, making this Provincial village the perfect design trip to be awe inspired by the Fall's seasonal colors.
The technicolor glory of this hilltop village is reflective of the palette of the old ochre quarry that resides at the base of the village. A visit to the town would not be complete without a tour of the ochre quarry and its Mars like caverns. The village houses sit along cobblestone spiraling streets all saturated in what seems to be 50 shades of ochre. Situated at the top of a red cliff offering stunning views of the contrasting green Luberon valley, Roussillon is one of the most photogenic villages of Provence. Which also means that Roussillon is a tourist haven in the Summer, but virtually empty during the off-season of Fall. If you're in search of a Fall destination, Roussillon offers seasonal appropriate beauty.
