Help with 10 day trip in Southern France

Jump to last reply

Looking for help planning a trip in Southern France in early August.

My boyfriend and I are spending 10 days in Spain in late July and then will be leaving from Barcelona and heading to Southern France for 10 days. We have heard great things about the Languedoc-Roussillon area as well as Provence and are also considering making a stop on the Cote-d'Azure if there's time. We are interested in art, food, some night life and perhaps a day trip of hiking or biking. We're not so interested in Roman history. And we'd love to make a stop at a winery (or two!). We're looking for a mix of larger cities as well as smaller villages and would be happy to choose a few great spots rather than rushing through too many. Oh! And we would love to avoid the tourist crowds if possible (I know that's asking a lot as we're visiting in high season). The trouble is narrowing it down.

In Languedoc-Roussillon we're interested in Monpellier, Camargue, Pezenas & Guilhem le Desert

In Provence we are interested in Aix-en-Provence, Avignon & although I've heard great things about Gordes & Roussillon, I've heard they can be very touristy so I'm thinking Saint Saturin les Apt, Lourmarin and Goult instead. I also like the idea of seeing les Calanques near Cassis.

For the Cote D'Azure, I haven't done very much looking yet and so am totally open to suggestions. Obviously there are a lot of options above so we may not make it to the Cote D'Azure.

Any suggestions as to which spots we can leave out, which are must-sees, which are best to make a "home base" and how long a stay each place would be much appreciated.

Thanks!!
