One of my favorite villages to visit in the Luberon is Roussillon. Long ago they mined the rocks and soil around here to make ochre, that wonderful rusty golden color used in painting. The color is now made synthetically so the demand died down but you can still buy sacks of the powder and paint a wall with it, which I did, or use it in your own art projects. The whole town has a great rust color and is a fabulous place to stroll around, although it can be an aerobic workout as it is on the top of a hill.

An artist who is getting it down on canvas.
I don’t know why but ceramic chickens are for sale all over the place.
The best view in the village.
