10 Days France: Paris, Provence & Cote D Azur?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our first international trip with our almost 10 month old. We're flying from NYC, and originally were thinking of flying to Paris for 3-4 days, then taking the train to either Avignon or Aix-en-Provence, then driving to Nice and spending the last leg there and flying back home. I'm concerned that we are over-booking ourselves. Oh, and we haven't been able to get organized, we're looking to leave at the end of October! My question is, would we be better just doing Paris, then focusing on either heart of provence and Nice/Cannes/Monaco? We've both been to Paris (over ten years ago), but neither of us have been to southern france. Although we do want to sight see, we also want some time to completely chill/relax, and not run ourselves ragged getting from point A to point B. Also, since we aren't there for too long, would prefer not to lose a ton of time traveling. We've traveled a lot so are comfortable driving in other countries and navigating unknown areas.

Fpr 10 days would you:
A. Split the trip into three destinations. Paris 4-5, Avignon or Aix-En-Provence 2 days (which one would you say is better for a first time visitor), any suggestions on high-end hotels?, and 2-3 days in Nice
B. Paris & Aix or Avignon
C. Paris & Nice
D. Only pick one area (i.e. spend entire time in Paris and surroundings, or Nice and surroundings or Aix and surroundings)

Suggested itineraries with high-end/luxury hotel recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Right now the biggest issues we're having is figuring out where to fly in/out, and where to base ourselves in each region so we can book hotels.

Thanks so much for your help!
