July 15, 2014 | The Hidden Wonders of Roussillon

There is a small village in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in Southeastern France that has beautiful hidden properties isolated to this area. There are large ochre deposits in the clay surrounding the village. Ochre is a natural earth pigment containing hydrated iron oxide, which ranges in color from yellow to deep orange or even brown. The clay dirt is very fine and runs through your fingers like sand.
