Looking for recommendations on Provence/Luberon/Rhone Valley

Jump to last reply

The wife and I are spending 17 days in France between June 27 and July 13. We're flying into Nice from New York and spending 4 nights there to check out the surrounding riviera. Towards the end of our trip, we're spending 5 nights in Paris from July 8 to July 13 when we fly back to New York from Paris.

My question is about Provence and the Rhone Valley. We have 7 nights to do this and want to have a good mix of rustic living in the countryside and wine tasting. We are leaning towards spending a few nights in Luberon and checking out the surrounding areas, but don't want to spend all 7 nights there. Can we do a bit of a road trip, with 2 stops (4 nights in one location, and 3 in another), while we check out the surrounding areas of each stop?

The web is overwhelming, and we're at a loss for what to do. Any suggestions are very welcome. We're going to rent a car for the 7 day stay in Provence or wherever we go, and would ideally like to take a train back to Paris after dropping the car off. Thanks in advance for your expert help!
