Small village/town near Cote d'Azur/Verdon Gorge for 3 days

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for a nice place to stay for 3 nights to use as a base for a few day trips to visit a couple of the coastal areas as well as the Verdon Gorge. We will be spending a week in the area flying into Marseille and out of Nice and hiring a car for most of that time.

We have booked the first 2 nights in Cassis and will be visiting the Calanques. The final 2 nights will be spent in or very close to Nice and we will have dropped the car off at this point. We will probably visit Eze and also do a walk from Cap d'Ail along the coast to Monaco and get the train/bus back.

So, we have 3 nights to play with in the middle of this. We don't want to stay anywhere that is busy and would prefer a more rural location that provides fairly easy access for day trips. The Gigaro coastal path (Sentier du Littoral) near St Tropez is a possibility and we would definitely like to spend a day exploring the Verdon Gorge.

Can anyone recommend a place to stay? Also given that we would like to 'get away from it all' would we be better off basing ourselves closer to the Verdon Gorge and doing a day trip down to Saint Tropez way instead of the other way around? We will be getting plenty of coastal time in Cassis and Nice.

Thanks
