The region

Roussillon is classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. It is in the middle of the Provence, in the Luberon. It is well known for it's red ocred canyons. The village has many restaurants, cafes, a castle, an art galleries, souvenir shops, and all the houses are red coloured by the ocres, as you can see on the photo in the site. There is also a boulangerie, grocery store, a pharmacy, a post office, a very good butcher, a cash dispenser and a very nice farmer's market and delicatessen market every Wednesday. The nearest supermarket is in Gordes, which is 10 km (6 miles) away from the house. The house is 900m (0.55 miles) from Roussillon.

Beautiful villages are few kilometers away from the house. Villages such as Gordes (known for the stone houses, the Vasarely Museum but also for the movie “a good year” with Russell Crowe and Marion Cotillard…!), Menherbes, Goult, Bonnieux, Lacoste (with the Marquis de Sade's castle), Buoux, Lourmarin, Isle-sur-la Sorgue (with the internationally famous antique market on Sunday's), Fontaine de Vaucluse (with it's 100 feet deep water spring), Eygalieres (with the famous Chapelle St-Sixte), Saint-Remy (where Nostradamus, Van-Gogh and princess Caroline de Monaco now lives!), and many other beautiful landscapes and villages to see.
