South of France Intinerary

Jump to last reply

Hey Fodorites,

I need a little help with a South of France itinerary. I am going to France for 2 and a half weeks at the begingig of May. I already have 10 nights at the beginning booked at a apartment in the Marais District of Paris. I need to figure out what to do with the last week.

fThe idea is to spend a few nights in 2 or 3 places in the South of France, and do day trips by car. The emphasis is leisurely exploration and to not cramp too much in. I am especially interested in any beautiful historical town or city, markets, gardens, architecture, geological formations ( I am a Geologist), and beautiful easy hikes (we don't want to bring gear besides hiking boots). The one must do for this region is a spa town with a great hammam that is not too expensive. Our budget is flexible, we like to stay in one really amazing hotel in one town, and a reasonable one in the other. Although we love art, museums are not a huge draw for us, we would rather explore the beautiful towns and history that inspired it. Museums are for rainy days.

Thanks a lot! Happy Travelling!

Jenn
