Last two weeks of May: One week in Provence and then one week in Dordogne?

Jump to last reply

I was in Provence in 2006 on a two-week driving trip and had a wonderful time--Nice, Aix, St. Remy-de-Provence with day trips to Roussillion, Gordes, Uzes, Arles, and a couple of days back at the end in St. Paul-de-Vence. We also fit in Montpellier (which I did not like all that much) and a day trip to Carcassone. Did not go to Avignon or Nimes.

Am now planning trip for last two weeks in May with friend who has never been outside Paris. Her aim is to see parts of France outside the big city. Have suggested she do a little research and choose between two weeks in Dordogne or two weeks in Provence. She would like to do BOTH in one trip: one week based in Dordogne (I have suggested Sarlat as a base) AND one week in Provence (I have suggested St. Remy-de-Provence as a base but am open to suggestions. I did love St. Remy and would be happy to base there again). I told her we would waste a day driving and she said that's ok with her.

Has anyone done this sort of trip (say, fly to Paris, go direct to Dordogne for a week, drive to Provence base, week in Provence, fly back from Nice (through Paris or London). Was it worthwhile? Or would you recommend staying two weeks in one region? That's my preference, but I'm trying to be flexible.

In any case, was thinking it made sense to fly first to Nice and then go to Dordogne for second week because the weather is more likely to be dryer the later we go?

We will fill in details of which day trips later. Hope we're not too late to get good bookings for end of May (??)

Thanks for any help.
