Advice on south France itinerary

Jump to last reply

I have 12 days for a trip to south France. After adding everything I really wanted to see, I found that I ran out of days... so the last part of the trip (all of Provence!) is now compressed into a single day :(

If someone has been to these places, and maybe could suggest cutting some of the sites out in favor of something else, I'd be very grateful.

I like castles, food, rivers, canoes, hiking, cute villages, caves - as you can probably guess from this itinerary. I prefer lush forests to the more arid terrain, that's why I plan to drive so far north, into Perigord.

Thank you!
