The ochers of Roussillon


In his 12 seat calèche you will enjoy a true trip through time, along some small provençal paths.

You will crisscross the Luberon Natural Regional Park in your calèche, following the rhythm of the horses, encountering a unique heritage: the ochers of Roussillon

The ochers are the result of a unique geological formation which originated more than 230 million years ago, creating a soil with unique red and gold colors covering the mountain of the Luberon with a silky and shimmering finery.

The natural formations of ocher and its use by man will no longer be a secret for you.

You will explore how the ochers are extracted and you will visit the decanting tanks.

Over the course of the day we suggest :

- A visit to the ocher quarry
