Provence: looking for some ideas based on our interests

Jump to last reply

Not sure why I have not received as many responses as in the past so I am posting again:

We will be staying in a B&B in Velleron for 2 nights and 2 nights in another BB near Aix. We will arrive by train to Avignon and pick up our car there. When near Velleron, we plan to explore to the east , west and south to about half way to Aix and around. From Velleron, by the end of our stay, we will drive to the next BB near Aix and explore to the east and west from there.

Velleron 17 to 19 ( 2 nights)
Aix 19 to 21 ( 2 nights)

Here are some of the thoughts I have while traveling about the region:
1. Cooking class
2. Truffle hunting tour with appetizers and hor devours - received response that this is not a good idea since July is not truffle season but the tour is offered. Thoughts?
3. Visit Markets
4. Wine tour
5. Walk around aimlessly
6. On the drive from the 1st BB to the next, this is she we plan to incorporate a drive to and around the lavender fields, visiting hilltop villages such as Monieux and Saignon. We would like to visit a lavender farm with the possibility of a tour. If there is not one we can do on our own, we will opt out for booking a tour on Viator or a. Similar site. I found one for $77 per person.

What other ideas, Tours or drives may you have? Any restaurant or cafe recommendations are also appreciated. Along these drives, what small towns are good stops for an hour or 2?

On July 21 we will depart for Nice via car, leaving our car in Nice the day we arrive. Does anyone have and recommendations on a good route with a stop or 2 on the way to Nice?

Hopefully listing these can provide a good basis for recommendations.

I understand that this is not enough to explore the region, but please be cognizant of the fact that we will be in France for only 2 weeks and don't have the luxury of spending our time here months at a time. Based on this limited time, I am trying to plan the trip as best as I can with the time I have.

Thank you!
