We drove the short distance from Rustrel to Roussillon and stayed in the Aire ( N 43.896452 E 5.295878) ….a large car park, quiet, €9 for the night.
After lunch we headed into Roussillon, about 1/4 of a mile from the aire. Roussillon is a lovely town perched on top of ochre coloured cliffs.
There was an antique market in full swing when we pitched up.
The dogs had their pictures taken.
There is a good walk through the ochre landscape; busy but worth the €2-50 we had to fork out. The dogs went free. We met a group of schoolchildren, one of whom said very politely to Colin…’Comment Cava?’ I had to interject ‘Il ne parle pas Francais’ and there was a positive barrage of ‘How are you?’ Good afternoon and other English greetings from the whole group. Colin was understandably nonplussed.
After the walk we headed into the old town and had a drink in a small café by the Mairie, whilst being nicely toasted by the afternoon sun.
There are a lot of crafts shops and art galleries here.
Many of the buildings are a lovely rich red colour, reflecting the local materials.
We went back the following morning for another look around the town.
We were followed by a stray labrador and Colin got a bit worried and had to be carried! All the way back to the motorhome (….very persistent labrador).
