Its sands, in every hue of yellow, orange, and red, have been used to paint the façades of the village homes, a rainbow of colour highlighted by the ever-present Provençal sun. Stroll through the pigmented streets or the abandoned ochre quarry, a guaranteed postcard picture with every step, before hopping back on your bike.  Then Gordes, its grey stone buildings rising in gravity-defying concentric circles, high above the Calavon valley below, crowned by its renaissance castle.
