Please suggest stops/sites from Barcelona to Avignon, France or back

Jump to last reply

We fly to Barcelona june 19, for 3 days then head north to Avignon, France to meet with a bicycling group. We've decided that a car is our best choice 1) b/c we're car ppl and like to stop, 2 ) there didn't seem to be efficient train routes between the two areas and 3) we needed a car after the Avignon leg. Whilst in Provence (6days) we will visit Mazan, Sault and Gordes.

To avoid heavy dropoff fees, we'll return to Barcelona to fly home. We'll have 3-4 days to get back to Barcelona. This is where I'd appreciate your help.

Are there sites/towns on the way south to Barcelona you'd recommend seeing? We've never been to this part of France or to the Basque region. Should we see other places in Provence before heading south and if so, what would be your 2 favorite? What about Spanish sites, such as Figueres or Cadaqués?

What we prefer: good, simple food and casual ambience. The offbeat, under traveled, more intimate or just plain 'good' always suits us more than seeing the 'big name' sites. Lots of steps/walking or activity is great but not necessary. Museums, for about 2 hours.

Thanks so much for your comments!
