Please Review: Provence day trips from Aix-en-Provence

Jump to last reply

I would like some day-trip advice and (if possible) specific driving routes for an upcoming trip to Aix-en-Provence. We will have 3 full days (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) in mid/late July.

My concern is that the proposed driving itinerary is too exhausting. Since we are arriving Wednesday evening and Thursday is our first full day, I am thinking of passing up a potential afternoon drive (Thur) and spend the entire day getting familiar with Aix-en-Provence while also taking advantage of the Thursday Market. Or would you suggest an afternoon drive?

ITINERARY
Thursday = Market Day. Enjoy Aix and lay by the hotel pool (Aquabella).
Friday = Day Trip #1 - Luberon
Saturday = Day Trip #2 - Western region of Provence

DETAILS/QUESTIONS- DAY TRIP #1

Bonnieux
Gordes
Roussillon
Apt
Lourmarin

A) Here are the places I would like to visit on Friday. Are there any Friday markets that you would suggest? I've listed 5 villages that I think would work well together for a day trip. Do you think this is too many? Any other suggestions?
B) Is this reasonable?
C) Where is my best bet for lunch?

QUESTIONS/THOUGHTS - DAY TRIP #2

St. Remy de Provence
Les Baux
Pont du Gard
Arles

A) Looking at the map, this day trip is much more travel intensive. Is it unrealistic? Too much driving?
B) If not, what would be your plan of attack? Start towards St. Remy and finish with Arles? or vice-versa?
C) Lunch suggestions? Saturday Market recommendations?


Thanks,
Justin
