A week in Provence (Luberon)

Jump to last reply

Our family is travelling to France at the end of June/July. We have 3 kids: ages 14, 15 and 6 (quite a spread!). The 2nd week of our holiday we have rented a house near Bonnieux in Provence. I have come up with an itinerary after doing some reading, and wondered if anyone had any comments or suggestions (I find the forum's and people's experiences really helpful). Here goes:

Day one: arriving from a week in Villefranche sur mer, near Nice. Stopping in Sanary sur mer en route to look around and have lunch. get acquainted with Bonnieux. Eat out (as it is my husband's birthday), any suggestions?

Day two: visit Gordes early, look around and have morning coffee. Visit Abbey of Senanque, picnic for lunch here. Then on to Cateau la Canorgue ('A Good Year' winery) for a look round a winery. rest of the day/evening kids can hang out by the pool at our house.

Day three: Visit Lacoste, Roussillon, Apt (can we fit more in there with the kids?). Particularly looking forward to Roussillon to visit the Ochre mines and have lunch there.
After dinner, walk around Bonnieux and go out for ice cream etc.

Day four: Drive to Pont du Gard, leave early. Picnic there, maybe kids can have a swim. Drive on to Uzes to look around, eat dinner on the way home somewhere (?). I wonder if this day is too long?

Day four: Visit L'Isle sur la Sorgue, get ingredients for picnic then take a Canoe Evasion trip down to Sorgue river. Afternoon and evening will be spent with friends in Lagnes.

Day five: Visit to Les Baux des Provence (think the medieval theme will be enjoyed by our 6 year old boy!). Will look around the Chateau and try to catch the Carrieres de Lumieres. Drive to St. Remy on the way back for a look around.

Day six: morning market in Bonnieux. lunch by the pool. Walk in the afternoon in the cedar forest. evening: drive through Menerbes, and visit Oppede le vieux, have dinner there (?)

Day 7: pack up and go to phase 3 of our holiday in Antibes!

Anything else we should see??? I thought of a day visiting and hiking the last part of Mont Ventoux (I am a Tour de France fan) but wondered how to fit it in and what else to take out! You will notice I didn't include many markets. I think getting the kids up early to race to the markets each day wouldn't work all that well, but I would love to go to maybe one or two. thanks so much in advance if anyone has any comments.
