Paris to Provence updated itinerary-opinions/suggestions please

Jump to last reply

Ok, so further to my other posts, I have made some amendments to our French itinerary based on peoples ideas. As a background we are going to France/Italy for a 5 week holiday in May 2014 plus an additional 3 nights in London at the start, we are flying from Aus (will be our first Europe trip, my boyfriend and I). I would like to split the time evenly between the two countries (so approx 2 and a half weeks in each), so I am planning the itinerary to take us down through France to be able to get the train into Italy. So far the itinerary looks like this:

7 nights in Paris (our rental apartment has been booked for this already)
Get train to burgandy and stay for 3 nights (if anyone has suggestions on where would be a good base for this stay and if we would require a car to get around)
Get train to Lyon and stay for 2 nights (is it easy to get around and see other places out of the town?)
Get train to somewhere in Provence (have not decided where we will base ourselves) and stay for 5 nights. We will probably hire a car for this area. Would it be best to base ourselves at one place in Provence or try two different areas?

Aside from Paris, does the amount of time I have allocated to each place sound good, is there anywhere I have allocated too long too? For a first time trip do these sound like good places to visit in France?

Thanks for everyones help:-)
