Provence: To rent or not not rent a car

Jump to last reply

Over 4 full days, we want to be able to see:
Must see’s:
Avignon (1 day)
Arles (1 day)
Gordes
Want to see:
Rousillion
St Remy de Provence
Menerbes
Would be nice to see:
Fontaine de Vacluese
Bonnieux
Pont du Gard

If we make Avignon our base, Arles can be reached directly by train. So making Avignon our base takes care of the 2 full days. The other 2 days are the ones up for grabs.
If we are not renting a car at all (or if we only want to rent for the 2 days), then Avignon is the best option.
In a perfect world: if we had a car, I would’ve preferred to make Aix the base when visiting the Luberon villages, but Aix is further south (looks like at least an additional 45 min. drive…)
we are so confused on what to do.
Advantages of having a rental car for the entirety of our trip: flexibility, cheaper than tours and transfers, more time to spend Iinthe villages
Disadvantages: possibly more stress in finding parking in the cities (Avignon, Arles) and bigger towns, gas refills, and possible delays when returning the rental car on our departure date
