4 Days South of France - Not Nice - any ideas?

Jump to last reply

This is a short trip for our 25th anniversary. We are flying from New York to Nice the end of October for four nights. My husband and I have been to Nice before and loved it but want to try somewhere else. We have also been to Eze, Avignon and Aix and many smaller towns in Provence. We will not have a car on this trip.

I have been reading about St Paul De Vence and thought that might make a good trip. We could spend time there and maybe walk to Vence and take a car service/bus to Tourettes(?) Although we will only be there for 4 days....is there enough to do? We love food and wine, museums, art and art galleries, scenic beauty, historical sites, markets and love to walk. Without a car it is certainly more difficult getting around. I love staying in small towns and doing day trips but this time it will be more difficult.

I also thought of spending 2 nights in St. Paul and then spending 2 nights in Moustiers St Marie. Or forgetting about the South of France altogether and taking a train to the Bordeaux or Burgundy wine region. But that complicates things a bit.

Any ideas? thanks so much
