Nicknamed the "Colorado Provencal" in reference to its colors reminiscent of the American Grand Canyon. Colorado Provençal will offer you an exceptional spectacle, thanks to the variety of its shapes and colors, ranging from yellow, orange to red. Many hiking trails allow you to discover the most beautiful places of the site: 'le cirque de Barriès', le 'lit de la Dôa' and 'les cheminées de fée'.

The Cedar Forest

The first trees were planted in 1861, thanks to seeds collected in the Algerian Middle Atlas. Today, the forest is developed to allow walkers to venture there. You will find many paths and tracks open to you, so that you can walk in the forest, by bike or on foot. At the bend of the paths, you can admire the views of the Lubéron, the Ventoux and the Berre pond.
