Provence without a car!

Jump to last reply

I am looking to organise a holiday in Provence via train/bus in late August/early September. I've read enough to know that travelling by bus around the ''beautiful villages' is difficult but I like spending some time in places so I'm thinking of the following itinerary and would welcome comments/views?

Travel to Avignon by train from St Pancras:
2 days in Avignon then down to Cannes for 2/3 days to take in a birthday party!
The bulk of the time I'm looking to book a place in Gordes or one of the other villages for a week? My thinking is that there is enough to see/do in Gorges for a few days including walks? I've looked up travel from Gordes to Rousillion for example and buses go about every 4 hours and it takes about 16 minutes? So travel to see another village is an option - perhaps walking all/part of the way and/or getting bus back?
I've checked travel from Avignon to Gordes which would go via Cavaillon, then either bus (every 4 hours!) or just get taxi from Cavaillon to Gordes - about £18-£21 perhaps?
I'm failing to figure out if it's possible to get a taxi from Cannes to Gordes and how much it would cost or if we have to go back to Avignon first, then Cavaillon to Gordes as described above?
The birthday party option came as a surprise 'add-on' recently which we are trying to work out if we can fit in since we are in the area, so to speak!
Any advice would be most welcome.
