About Sandra Delesvaux
In charge of the rentals in the agency Luberon Sotheby's in Gordes, I live in Roussillon and I really felt in love for this village!
Sandra Delesvaux purchased this house in 2012
Why Sandra Delesvaux chose Roussillon
The village of Roussillon is one of most beautiful of France and the second most visited in the Luberon after the village of Gordes. With its festival of ochre colors and hill-top position, it is one of Provence’s jewels. It is hard to depict the true splendor of Roussillon. 17 shades of Ochre paint the village’s houses. Imagine the amazing contrast with the green pines, blue sky and red cliffs…
Roussillon, with its history, vineyards and unique location, is the French savoir-vivre at its best.
In the region of Provence, between the mountains of the Luberon and the Vaucluse, Roussillon sparkles with ochred light. Discover this unique mineral treasure of surprising blazing colors, right in the heart of the world’s most important ochre deposit.
