7 nights between Nice and Perpignan

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning this trip, beginning in Nice, where we arrive on September 29. We have booked there for 5 nights, the first 3 of which will be with my son and his wife. They then take off on their own for Paris.

We will be renting a car and leaving Nice on 10/4, heading to Grasse, planning on wandering around, arriving later in the day, and then the following morning doing the perfume tour(s), heading south and west by the end of the day. On 10/5 we are booked into Aubagne, and the next day will see Cassis and a little of Marseilles. On 10/7 we head north towards Avignon, and have looked at Saint Remy as a possible stop for the night.

This is where we run into a time management problem as it clashes with the rest of our schedule. We have to choose what to see between Avignon and Perpignan, where we are scheduled to return our car on Saturday, 10/11. We would have preferred to return it on Sunday, but the rental location is not open. From Perpignan, we are taking the train into Spain and renting another car for a few days before catching a flight to Bilbao on 10/14, staying there for 2 nights, and then on to San Sebastian, before flying back to Barcelona on 10/19. We fly home from Barcelona on 10/24.

This is our first visit to this part of France and would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.
