Need help with Provence itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are two couples in late 50's travelling to France in August 2016. We plan to be in Provence from 13th - 18th August (5 nights), after having spent time in Paris and Nice. I know this is a horribly busy time with crowds, but the dates are not negotiable unfortunately. We will be having a car. A tentative itinerary is given below, on which we would like critiques, changes and suggestions. We are not the beach types or the hiking kinds. Prefer idyllic villages, scenery, and markets, food, wines etc.

Thinking of basing ourselves at St Remy for the entire 5 days, to avoid living out of a suitcase, and do day-trip from there. But are flexible on this proposition.

Day 1 : Start driving from Nice in morning. Drive to Cassis, spend time there, and then on to Aix, and end up at St Remy by night. Doable ? Would you recommend covering Gorges du Verdon instead of Cassis (doubt if we can cover both, along with Aix) ? Should we spend the night at Aix ?

Day 2 : Cover St Remy, and nearby villages of Les Baux, Maussanne les-Alpilles and Mouries. Too much for 1 day ? Please advise on what to delete.

Day 3 : Arles & Camargue

Day 4 : Avignon, Villeneuve les-Avignon, Orange, Chateauneuf du pape, Carpentras; I know this is way too much. Please help select from these nearby destinations

Day 5 : Luberon villages of Apt, Gordes, Roussillon, St Saturnin-les-Apt; again, please help us select.

Kindly offer suggestions, as we are totally open to ideas.Thanks in advance.
