Nice, Vence, Provence, Paris trip July 10-24

Jump to last reply

This will be my first trip to Europe. It will be my husband, myself and our 14 year old daughter. We are on a budget. Using Stu Dudley's advice, we are flying into Nice staying 2 nights, Friday to Sunday (July 11-13) with Genevieve Levert's bed and breakfast, 3 nights in Vence (July 13-16) at either Auberge des Seigneurs (phone is out of order and has not returned my emails) or Hotel Lalubiane, then 4 nights in provence (July 16-19) not sure where we are staying. Saturday the 19thTGV to Paris or Giverny (possibly 1 night in GIverny to see Monet's gardens) then 4 nights in paris with a studio rental. We would love to attend the 10 am Sunday service at Notre Dame but think Monet's gardens may be too busy to see Saturday after our TGV / bus ride into Giverny.
We will rent a car Sunday July 13 when we leave Nice and drop off the car Saturday July 19 when we take the TGV to Paris.
I would love any advice on inexpensive places to stay in Vence or St. Paul, Provence (near Gordes?), and Giverny area; as well as any advice on best/cheapest place to pick up the car rental near Nice or Vence. Thanks for all your help!
