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.

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).
