Driving from Nice to Avignon area

Jump to last reply

Thanks in advance for any help!

My DH, myself, and teen granddaughter fly from Rome to Nice and arrive late afternoon. We have a car rented and will drive west, but really don't know where to spend the night. Our reservations for the next three nights are in Graveson, not too far from St. Remy. I know that's a fairly long drive, so was hoping to spend that first night after our arrival in Nice (to pick up the car) in a cute village or town somewhere on the way to Aix en Provence. If we can make it to Aix the next morning from wherever we stop, we can introduce our granddaughter to the fun of a French market, as well as enjoying the ambiance of that lovely town. ...then continue on to our B and B.

We could drive all the way to Aix that first night, but we won't get out of Nice until after 6:30 and hate to arrive so late if we went that far.

Any ideas of a place to spend the night that would be reasonably priced (like under 100 Euros), and on the way? I know we won't have much time to appreciate wherever we do stop, but even a couple of hours that evening or the next morning would be fun. Maybe I am wrong about the distances.....and we could make Aix. I just don't know.

As always, I appreciate the knowledge and gracious help these forums offer!!
