Please critique Provence itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are a family of three with daughter being 10 yrs old at time of trip. Will be in south of France for 14 days (not including travel) from end of March through early April in 2014. We will have a car and are interested in spending time in the Cote d'azur and Provence. I have read a lot of the posts and Mr. Dudley's itinerary. I am now trying to finalize # of days in each location so I can start to book hotels, etc. We are flying into Nice (arrive ~ 10AM) and out of Marseille.

Day 1-4: Nice (day trips to St Paul de Vence and Monaco)
Day 5-6: St Tropez/St Maxime (probably stay in St Maxime)
Day 7 - 8: Gordes with day trip to other Luberon towns
Day 9-11: St Remy with day trips to Avignon + more TBD
Day 12 - 14: Marseille (including AIX & Cassis0

We like being by the sea for walks, museums, castles, amusement parks, tourist traps, shopping and pretty much anything there is to do. We do not mind staying only a few nights in a place, which you will see above.

I think the first 6 days is pretty set but open to suggestion. Is 2 days in Luberon enough for a small tasting or should I take one of the days from St Remy and add it to Gordes?:

I was also thinking to do 2 days in Gordes, 2 days in St Remy and then 4 full days in Marseille and day trip from there.

Thank you for any suggestions anyone may have.
