Provence- Luberons (Roussillon, Gordes etc) or Alpilles (St. Remy,Les Baux

Jump to last reply

Help! Traveling with my family by car after Paris and Annecy to Provence area. It's our first time in this area and we only have 4 nights in Provence- after which we fly back to the states from Marseilles airport. We don't want to spend time in Marseilles but would like to spend our last night within about an hour of the airport (it will be a Saturday morning- hopefully not a lot of traffic).
The problem: I would love to visit both the small villages of the Luberons (Roussillons, Gordes, Bonnieux etc..) and Alpilles ( St. Remy , Les Baux) area but I think we will be too stressed for time - driving and changing hotels too much. Thought about 2 nights in each area but now I am thinking I better choose one. Which area is more beautiful, special, interesting? I have 3 kids - 12 year old twin boys and a 15 year old daughter. We love to walk around areas of natural beauty as well as interesting villages, shops and ruins, and finding tasty treats. Leaving the U.S. next week so please respond ASAP!!

Also any recommendations of hotel or base villages would be appreciated. If we only choose one area- we may spend 3 nights and the last night in Aix en Provence since it's closer to Marseille- hotel recommendations? Thanks!!
