First time Languedoc/Provence - Southern France trip

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling from Barcelona with my wife from the 10th to the 16th of Mac 2010 to hopefully tour Languedoc/Provence ending our trip in Marseille. Although we speak English fairly well, we do not speak a word of French and we are not familiar with the Europe travel norms.

After two weeks of research, we have decided to cover some of these places like Cannal Du Midi, Carcosonne, Beziers, Arles, Nimes, Mont Pellier, Aix au Provence and Marseille. We are most interested in quaint villages, roman ruins, historic places and experience local living.

Need some advice on the following:
~ Is early Mac a good time to visit Languedoc/Provence?
~ Do we need two plan for separate base camps (one for Languedoc and another for Provence), Any recommnedations which of the cities will make the most sense as a base?
~ Will it make more sense to look for a private tour guide service that can help arrange all the travel arrangments and provide guide services since we do not speak French?
~ Are there any good reference to find private travel guides for both the areas?
~ From Marseille, is it possible to do a one day higlights of the French Riviera to see Nice/Monaco?
~ What is the most cost effective way to reach Paris/Frankfurt from Marseille - by rail or by budget airlines?
~ Any tips on how to get the best rail deals base on the above my travel plan so far?

Sorry for the lenghty note but so many things I need to know. I am so excited about this beautiful countryside plan.

Thank you.
