10 days in Provence without a car

Jump to last reply

I had visited Provence and the Riviera 6 years ago with my boyfriend and we rented a car. But it was pretty much touch-and-go and I regretted not having more time for the charming villages. So now I am going back in late Apr for 10 nights on a solo trip. I can't drive and will be taking the public transport. I would like to focus on the villages in Provence rather than the coastal towns although as I am flying in and out of Nice, I will spend a couple of nights there. I am in my 40's and enjoy nature.

I am thinking of 2 or 3 nights in Arles, St Remy, Aix and 2 nights in Nice and taking the bus or trains to nearby villages for day trips. Would those be good bases? Can I get to them easily to and fro Nice? I would also like recommendations of B&Bs (preferred) near bus or train stations in these places. My budget is around 70-80€ for a single room, preferably with a garden or greenery. It does seems like there aren't many B&B choices in central locations so next I will consider hotels with nice surroundings.

Grateful for any recommendation or advice.
