Advice on staying in Provence

Jump to last reply

We are planning 6 weeks in France in June-July 2011. My husband and I are meeting my sister in Nice and want to base ourselves in Provence for at least a week. I've looked at places in the Huate Provence - Village of Buis-Les-Baronnies and Venasque but wondering if we should look in the more central area of the Luberon. I read an old thread about this topic and one poster suggeted that Venasque was not a good choice for a first time visit to Provence. Just wondering if someone might provide some comments around this topic to help me decide. Other places I've been finding in my search are a village cottage in Vers Pont du Gard (La Tonellerie) and some options around St Remy, which was a village mentioned in the thread from 2010 that addressed staying in Provence.

I have other questions about other areas on the way to the Dordogne but I'll start a new topic for that. For now I'm interested in pinning down a spot in Provence.
