Base for Provence - St-Remy vs Avignon and Arles

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to decide on a place to stay for five nights - July 1-6. Plan to visit Avignon, Arles, Pont du Gard, Uzes, St Remy, Les Baux, hilltowns including Gordes, Roussilon. Possibly also Antigue-Mortes, Nimes and Tarascon (they are on the 'if time' list). We will have just come from the Dordogne and after this area will head to Vence, then Italy (if before and after matters to your advice).

I've been to Avignon, St-Remy and Gordes but my daughter has not, and for me it was 12 years ago so I'd like to revisit them. We want to avoid the Avignon Festival which starts on July 5, so will do Avignon at the beginning.

One thought was two nights Avignon and three in Arles, but even for July 1 & 2nd I'm finding very limited availability in Avignon, plus more expensive and parking extra. My other thought was do all five nights in St-Remy, which I see has been suggested on numerous threads.

My questions - Even in St-Remy I'm seeing a lot of "sold out". Do you think things are really sold out already or maybe they just aren't on the booking sites yet? I mostly use booking.com but am open to other sites. Most of the places in my price range that look good to me are a little out of the 'center' (1-2 miles or less) which I guess would be good for driving to other places but we'd probably need to drive into town for dinner, etc. Is this a problem in St-Remy? I did it as a day trip the last time and really don't remember the parking situation.

What would you do in my situation?
