8 days in Provence - please critique this itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are a fit couple in our 60s and have 8 mid-September days in Provence. Will rent a car. We want to have @ two days of biking (recreational, not intense). Objective is to see a lot, but no crazy-packed days. We like hiking the countryside, old villages, beautiful landscapes, and good food. I would rather that most of our time be outside. Flying into and out of Marseille. After reading many comments, websites, and books, this is what I've come up with, and would love to have the benefit of your experience, before I finalize and book hotels:

Day 1 (Friday) arrive in Marseille and transfer to Aix-en-Provence (2 nights) Cezanne Atelier and Cezanne Trail
Day 2 (Saturday) Aix-en-Provence market day and old village
Day 3 (Sunday) Rent a car and drive to Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Roussillon, and Gordes. Overnight Gordes
Day 4 (Monday) drive from Gordes to St. Remy, via Avignon
Day 5 (Tuesday) Bike from St. Remy to Lex Baux, tour Lex Baux sites
Day 6 (Wednesday) St. Remy market day, easy hike around St. Remy (suggestions?)
Day 7 (Thursday) Start day with visit to Pont du Garde; afternoon biking, but not sure where -- Suggestions?
Day 8 (Friday) leave St Remy for one day somewhere closer to Marseille Airport, but where?? Thinking either back to Aix for the day/night, or having the day/night in Marseille
Day 9 (Saturday) late morning flight home from Marseille

Thanks very much for your thoughts!
