Request for comments Provence Itinerary Fall 2015

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have planned a vacation in Provence from Sept 26 through Oct 7, 2015. We will be flying into and out of Marseilles. I have tentatively booked 2 nights in Marseilles at Residence du Vieux Port to enable us to recover from jet lag and view the city before renting a car and driving out to the western area of the region. We will rent the car on Sept. 28 and drive to St.Remy de Provence where we will stay for 4 nights at Hotel de'l Image. This seems to be a good base to explore the region and the hotel is in the center and near many restaurants. We will be in town for the Wednesday market day. On Friday October 2nd we will drive to Roussillon where we will stay 2 nights at Le Clos de la Glycine and have at least one meal at Restaurant Davide at our hotel, which I hear is well regarded and also has wonderful views. On Monday October 5, we will drive to Villa Gallici outside Aix where we will stay for 2 nights. This is a bit of a splurge for the last two nights of our vacation.

My specific concerns:
a) Should we try to stay at one hotel for the last two nights instead of dividing into 2 two night stays? Are there better places to stay? Normally I try to stay at least 3 nights at each location but I thought each of the last 2 hotels had specific reasons to stay overnight. I don't mind repacking all that much. Also, I am reluctant to stay in Roussillon until the day we leave as we have a 10 am flight out of Marseilles in the morning and staying in Aix will make the morning drive on our departure date shorter.
b) Is Villa Gallici worth the splurge? How far is it to walk into town? We will have a car and we could also take a cab into town.

Any comments or suggestions will be very welcome.
