First time in Provence - Help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are first timers to Provence going the week of March 31. We have rented a large farmhouse at the foot of the Luberon… 25 minutes to either Avignon or Aix en Provence. We love exploring small villages and scenic drives, food and wine.

We arrive Saturday afternoon and we expect to pick up rental cars, stock the house with food and wine and arrive at our place in the early evening. Please help me plan our week.

Sunday
Morning Market at L’isle sur la sorgue
Fontaine de Vaucluse
Other nearby towns we should not miss?
Restaurant suggestion for dinner?

Monday – Meet in Aix en Provence at 10:00 am with chef to go to market and shop for a meal we’ll prepare later. After shopping at the market we will have a few hours to explore Aix before returning to begin preparing our meal. This cooking class has been booked, so can't change this date.

Tuesday – Wine Tour with Wine-Uncovered touring Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Rasteau, Cairanne, Séguret and Châteauneuf du Pape… Dinner back at our farmhouse

Wednesday-Need help with this day...
Avignon – Pope’s Palace or...
or Arles – Amphitheater, Cloisters at St Trophime, Les Baux
Nimes – Amphitheatre, Pont du Gard, (maybe too far for us?)
Orange?

Thursday - Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Menerbes… are these near enough to stop at all or would you pick one or two to visit? If so, which? Restaurant suggestions?

Friday-what have we missed? Maybe back to Aix...

Saturday – our flight departs from Marseilles in the evening... what would you do with this day? We'll need to be out of our house by noon and have the better part of the day to explore somewhere... What is in between Aix and Marseille that we should visit?

Thanks for any help you might offer...

Patty
