Perched at 450m, at the foot of the Balisier, Calebasse and Mount Pelée, Le Morne-Rouge provides a refreshing haven of lush green vegetation, ideal to explore the volcano. Fed by several rivers and soaked in abundant rainfall, the village is a genuine agricultural barn. Its name has two origins: the ruddy-coloured volcanic soil so suited to pineapple and banana crops, and the red tufts of smoke that escape from the neighbouring "mountain of fire".
