Provence to Toulouse: Trip Planning Help Needed

Jump to last reply

I'm pulling my hair out trying to select destinations for a trip to Provence and Languedoc in late June and early July. Too many appealing places to whittle down, a luxury problem, really.

A little about us: We're a late-middle aged couple; my husband has severe arthritis and has difficulty sitting or standing for more than two-hours, although swimming and cycling and hiking on easy terrain is fine. We also are late risers and dawdlers, so we need a lot more time in any destination than other travelers in order to cover the same sites.

Itinerary so far: Cassis, Aix, Gordes for 3 nights each.'

Objective: to plan another 7 days, ending in Toulouse, where we fly home.

We will have a car and would like to situate ourselves to see Roman ruins--some combination of Pont du Gard (with kayaking), Nimes, and Arles; possibly an uncrowded beach, provided it is near something "French"; Carcassonne;, and scenic drives or towns where we can walk, hike, or cycle. We are more interested in a relaxing pace than a fast overview, and want to limit, if not outright avoid, 1-night stops.

A few specific questions:
Will St. Remy be different enough from villages in the Luberon to warrant a stop?
Are there any hotels closer to Pont du Gard than Avignon?
Besides the Canal du Midi, are there any flat regions conducive for cycling?

As always, any input is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
