3 extra days in Provence/Riviera - advice please!

Jump to last reply

We are pleased to find we have a bonus of 3 days in southern France the first week of September and are unsure how/where to spend them (lucky problem)! We will have already spent 4 nights in St. Remy exploring the surrounds, 2 in Marseille and 3 in Nice before this. I'd love your thoughts!

We will be coming from Nice. We don't want to drive too much so currently thinking of exploring Gorges du Verdon, staying in Moustiers Saint Marie for 1-2 nights, then going to Aix (we've never been and won't have time during the Marseille bit) for our last night before driving back to Nice. I don't know if we'll be in the mood to hike much.
Another idea is Nice -Trigance (Samantha Brown recommendation) - Moustiers - Aix - Nice *if Trigance has some social life*. (That being said, is there enough social life in Moustiers to keep us there 2 nights?) As you see, I'm getting too wrapped around in the head about this, which is why I seek your sage advice.

One last thing: We don't want stay in places that are too sleepy (we like a few socializing options, vs. 1 restaurant or bar in the whole place, and that closes at 10pm - we experienced this in the Pyrenese a few years ago and would not like to repeat this experience, though it was a gorgeous, historica place... the hubs actually said, "please let's not stay in a castle again" as he immediately associates them with boring evenings!)

Thank you very much for your help!
