Help with General Provence Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We're planning to celebrate our 35th anniversary with a trip to Provence/Cote d'Azur at the end of the June into the first week of July (about 16 days). Have done some preliminary research and this is what we're thinking... flying into Nice on a Wed, spending a few days in that area and then renting a car and driving up to a lovely (yet to be found) Sat-Sat gite rental somewhere in the Luberon. After that we'll head down to Aix/Marseilles area for a few nights before catching our flight back from Marseilles. So, my questions:
1. Generally, does this sound like a good plan? We want to see as many areas as possible during our time in Provence (i.e., Arles, Avignon, St. Remy, Pont du Gard, Luberon villages, lavender fields, a vineyard or two) but at the same time have some leisurely time to enjoy the area and "village life".
2. Where should we focus our gite search? Lourmarin? Gordes? Roussillon? We would like to be somewhere near some shops, cafes, etc. that feels more "authentic" and not super-touristy. Also concerned about drives out of the area for day trips -- is the terrain difficult/very hilly? We're ok with driving an hour or two, but don't want to return at night on a treacherous or difficult route. Based on this, are there areas we should avoid as we choose a place to base ourselves for the week?
3. To visit both areas, would it be better to stay Aix or Marseilles at the end of our trip?

Merci beaucoup!
