Provence with kids

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 10 day trip to Provence this summer with our two daughters (ages 2 and 5). Originally I had a very ambitious itinerary planned, but I'm starting to rethink it. The girls are great travellers, but even the 20 most beautiful villages in the world will start to look like a big pile of rocks to them relatively quickly. I'm starting to think it may be better to try to find a rental house in the Luberon and really take it easy from there. Maybe a few villages, a trip to the Carmargue (my 5 year old's favorite animal is the pink flamingo), the Canyon du Verdon, and swimming in some body of water somewhere. We will return there again, so we don't need to see it all now. We really just want the kids to have fun and get the feel of a better oops I mean different lifestyle.
Any thoughts on this? Suggestions about Provence with kids? And, most importantly for us, which village in the Eastern Vacluse area do you think would be best for a base?
Sorry to be so long-winded. Thanks for any advice.
