The Views from the Mourre Nègre are worth the Hike to the Top

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

One of the first things I fell in love with, when I viewed the house for the first time, was the view from the kitchen window. The Luberon is spread out in front of us with the constant sight of the tower on the highpoint of the Mourre Nègre directly ahead, even during the night, when it’s lit up.

It’s always been a tantalising sight and I know my neighbour’s mother (now in her eighties) still climbs up to it at least once a year to see the view.

…Continue reading here for the details and Julie’s photos of this 13km (8 mile) hike that starts just outside of the village of Auribeau in the Luberon. The summit is at 1125m, not as high as Mont Ventoux, but certainly at an altitude that provides a glorious view of the Luberon Valley and all the way to the Mediterranean (on a clear day).

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
