Help picking base in Provence or French Riviera?

Jump to last reply

I would like to visit the south of France. We don't like big cities and want relaxation but do want to see people.. (markets are probably too much but we love outdoor dining and people watching)

I was thinking of Luberon area so that we can relax and take day trips. While Remy and Aix sound charming, I'm not sure that we can take more than a day walking through villages in the summertime.

We like fresh food, nature, beaches, lakes, hikes, (I'd like to see Verdon Gorge and go kayaking)

Is there a base that offers that? Other thing I was thinking is stay in French Riviera (for the beach) but then take day trips for hiking and nature?

thank you.
