Looking for some advice on where to spend our precious 9 days in the South of France for the first time. We'll be there between 18-27 Sept 2014 and have never been there before. We're getting the train from London to Paris and then hoping to get a train down to the coast. We're also hoping to avoid getting a rental car (not keen on driving on the other side of road as we're from NZ!), could we get around via train/bus adequately from place to place? Open to ideas but probably looking for a base to stay for the week then travelling to and spending a day in a different place each day if possible. We're not party extravagant people, just looking for a nice quiet relaxing look around. We also don't speak French, is that going to be a problem? We will learn a few basics before we go though, but I don't hold out much hope with our accents being understood! Thanks for any advice or tips you can give us.
