Provence / South of France by public transport - best base?

Jump to last reply

I am an Australian student, currently on exchange at university just outside Paris and am planning to spend 5 - 7 days in the Provence / South of France region in early May. As I will not have a car and will be reliant on public transport, I am trying to work out which town would be the best to base myself at. I am thinking of staying in one location and travelling out to see the area. I would appreciate any suggestions on (1) a base that would be well placed for travelling by public transport; (2) B&B recommendation that would work well for someone travelling on their own; (3) any ideas of things others have loved in the area. I speak French and have travelled widely in Europe already. I prefer to travel slowly rather than doing 6 countries in 7 days (hence the reason I am not travelling during the May break with other students). Thanks for your help.
