Paris & Southern France -- need help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to France in the 3rd week of May and would love some advice on how to spend our days. This is what we have so far:

1st week (6 or 7 nights based outside of Paris near disneyland in a timeshare):
4-5 days spent in Paris
2 of these days will be spent adding day trips to Champagne, Versailles (or Fountainbleu) and Monet's Gardens

Questions -- We're thinking of changing our 1st week away to 6 days (4 days Paris & 2 day trips), so we can have a 3rd night in Provence below).

2nd week (Southern France)
2 nights Burgundy (based in Beaune)
3 nights in Provence (based in Arles or St. Remy)
2 nights in the French Riviera (based in Eze or Antibes)

Any suggestions for itineraries for Provence & the French Riviera would be super helpful.
The places we are most interested in are as follows. We're striving to have a balance between big city (Paris & London) and outdoorsy and active (Southern France).

Pont du Gard (kayaking if possible)
The Camargue (horseback riding)
The Luberon (hiking)
St. Remy

French Riviera:
Cap D'Antibes

Lastly, we fly out of Nice and will then spend 4 nights in London (another big city part of our trip). I know people love Provence, so the last option would be to skip the Riviera & spend 4 nights in Provence instead of 3.

Thanks in advance for anyone who has some advice!!
