It is a very pretty region in the close vincinity of Marseille with a lot of local tourism but few internationals. Not much to say as it’s pretty straightforward but underground water sources, beautiful lakes, cave, grottos and red hills are part of the visit. Gorgeous mountain side cities and old castles on top of hills are there too, it’s France after all.
The vaucluse famed fountain. We were able to actually enter and climb the grotto as the source was pretty empty due to the warm summer.
View from the remains of a castle atop the nearby hills. A rough and not so safe mini-hike it was.
And the red hills we visited later that day
Mostly used for dyes these days. The stuff will stain anything permanently as it’s iron oxide. Like, they use it to dye bricks and stones for and the color lasts hundreds of years.
