    Ochre are the treasure of the Luberon. Stretching on nearly 25km, the ochre landscape is very special from this area. Their shade infused this part of the Luberon with their colours from the whitest to dark red contrasting with the Provencal blue sky and the green of the pine trees. This ride takes you to the village called Roussillon. This multicoloured village is set on top of an ochre hill and is well known for the ochre cliff right in front of the main square. In Roussillon do not miss to hike the ochre trail and then lose yourself in the small street to the top of the village from where the view on the Luberon countryside is amazing. Longer option: This route takes you through the Ochre area to Gargas on beautifuls countryside roads crossing quaint hamlets. Gargas was an important ochre production centre. In Gargas do not miss to visit the Mathieu Lustrerie showroom. It's one of the best chandeliers in the world. Between Gargas and Roussillon, you can also visit an old ochre mine. Then enjoy the beauty of Roussillon before you ride back to Gordes. (26 miles/43km)
