Help choosing a base in Provence

Jump to last reply

I'll be traveling in Provence for 5 days in May, 2015, with a car. We'll arrive from Carcassonne in the morning of the first day and the last day will see us sleeping in Gorges du Verdon in our way to Côte D'Azur, which means we'll get 5 days but only 4 nights in this region. We're thinking about staying in just one base town and I'm not sure which one choose. We're planning to go to: 1) St. Rémy and Les Baux; 2) Avignon and Pont du Gard; 3) Cassis; 4) Aix-en-Provence; 5) Luberon (order yet not defined).
I have read a lot of suggestions but they usually involves towns of northwest/north Provence (Arles, Avignon, St. Remy and Luberon) or just Luberon. We don't want to go to Arles and Nîmes because we have a short stay and we'll have to choose (we went to a trip to Italy last year and saw a lot of roman ruins).
Between Avignon and St. Remy I'd rather stay in St. Remy because it is more scenic and less crowded to park/drive (according to what I read). Our other options are south Luberon (Lourmarin) (thinking it is Luberon and can be easier to drive to our day trips opposed to more central Luberon, like Bonnieux and Gordes) and Aix-en-Provence (we thought we could get faster to Avignon and St. Remy due to the faster roads and be not to far from Luberon and Cassis).

My questions therefore are:
1) should we stay in just one base for 4 nights, like we are considering?
2) which of these towns (St. Rémy, Lourmarin and Aix-en-Provence) would be a better choice to use as a base considering our day trip destinations (St. Remy/Les Baux, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Cassis and Luberon)?

I would also like to know: if we decide for south Luberon, is it too bad of a choice to stay in a town not so famous or beautiful like Lourmarin and opt for other less known like Puyvert or Lauris, which are close? I mean, would it be like we were "throwing away" the option of staying in Luberon (instead of a more practical town)? Or would it be not a problem (because they are still quaint and beautiful just not so, and quite close to one that it is)?

Thank you in advance.
