Provence and Cote D'Azur three weeks, location advice please!

Jump to last reply

We decided after all to go to Provence for three weeks this September.

I've been pouring over maps and books and Fodors, and especially Stu's guide (thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm!) and am hoping for some advice.

The preliminary plan is to arrive in Marseille on a Friday morning, stay overnight, pick up a car and head to a gite, staying either one or two weeks, then spending the last few nights near Nice before heading home, making 19 nights.

It is my second time in Provence, last time was in 2005, but will be John's first time. We'd like to visit all the typically usual places, including Les Baux, St. Remy, Avignon, Camargue, Gordes, Stu's drives east of Vaison la Romaine, St. Paul de Vence.

We're not interested in staying in a hilltop location if it means winding cliff edges and switchbacks, but would like a location with a few places to eat within walking distance, so we can park the car at night, and not worry about the wine police after dinner!

Not including the Nice area, any suggestions on a centrally located area that we can stay in for two weeks, or is it actually preferable to have two separate locations.

We'd like to keep a lid on the prices if possible, around 700€/week. If there are any gite or even apartment recommendations, I'd appreciate that.
