I stayed near Roussillon with my family about 15 years ago. I immediately recognised it as the village depicted in a painting in Rugby council's art collection (I work for Rugby Council). Here's the link to it:

I think it's a lovely painting and it really captures the atmosphere of the place.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures of your holiday. It can be an amazing holiday destination where you can relax in the nature...


wylie, sorry.



just ducking in to add i have discovered a really wonderful book written about rousillon in the 1950s, just before france became industrialized. laurence wyle, a village in the vaucluse. awesome, and thanks so much.



Love your photos..
looking at them makes me want to visit the place but its very expensive when we travel from India , so I do not know if I will ever be able to make a trip there but thanks for your virtual tour it was a pleasure...

Thx for sharing this


Wow! Such a beautiful place - no wonder you felt inspired. Looking forward to seeing your work. Thank yo for some amazing posts. Best wishes, Pj x


What a delightful vacation for you. Thank you for sharing some of the beauty with us.


Hi Lucy,
Was wondering if you are allowed to mention the accommodation you had in Mormoiron. Would like some info. for if we ever get to that part of the world. Thanks, Sam.


Amazing photos Lucy - you are one lucky woman. Judy.


Your photos are stunning and I love your "seeing eye". Your natural ability to take photos of what others would overlook. I look forward to the finale!

Thanks for sharing so beautiful pictures. From now I will dream to go there some day...
See you tomorrow..., I´m curious about your crochet project.

So glad that you enjoy my country ;-)))
In fact I do actually love this part of it. It colors and light. You're totally right.
If you come once more, than try the Village og Gordes, and it's marvellous "ocre" colors.

I hope you'll be inspired for new amazin crochet projets ;-)))

Your trip must really have been terrific! I have always loved that part of France and it is still a dream that I hope will come true one day. The colours and brickwork of those buildings are truly alive. You are a very lucky girl to have been there!


I've really enjoyed your holiday snaps. They reminded me of happy holidays spent in the area several years ago, I REALLY must go back!
thanks again

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures!!! I am just amazed that there is not lots and lots of people strolling around, it almost looked deserted!! I would truly love to visit there some day!!


Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos and your impressions of France. I haven't traveled in so long and it was wonderful to travel vicariously through your blog. Simply delightful!
