8 Days in Provence

Jump to last reply

Hello, this is my first time posting to this forum. I have read quite a few postings about Provence, and have learned a lot about the main towns. We plan to visit Avignon, Nimes, Arles, Aix, and Montpellier, yet we are yearning for a French countryside experience, and would like to find a nice village (or two) to use as a home base. Instead of excursions to the countryside, we would prefer day trips into the various towns. I have heard the Luberon is lovely, and I am sure there are other lovely areas, but it is all so difficult to plan having never been.

Question: Does anyone have experience staying in the countryside in Provence, with proximity enough to the main tourist sites to make a day trip or overnight trip practical? We are most interested in experience true French culture in a welcoming town not as frequented by the masses, if that is even possible. Many thanks.
