Roussillon in Provence is incredibly photogenic. When I visited on a late afternoon in June, the sun cast shadows and made the colours of the buildings exuberant and so vibrant it was an incredible sight.

Although one of the main tourist areas of the Luberon area of Provence, at this time of the day, before the peak summer tourist months of July and August, it was busy but not overly so. I was told that September and October are also beautiful months to visit. The sun is still strong, the summer throng not so much.

There were plenty of seats outside the pretty little café’s and restaurants.
