St. Remy and Bedoin itinerary critique, please and thank you!

Jump to last reply

Hi. I’d love some feedback on this general itinerary. We're leaving next Thursday, Sept. 17 from YYZ. The days aren’t really ordered, we just put down what we want to see, so we can switch things up as needed, Glanum closes Sunday.

We have one day from Bedoin that we need to fill, keeping in mind cliff driving or steep ascents or descents are out of the question. Are there any suggestions for that day?

Do any days seem unrealistic re time? We(DH) doesn't mind the driving, but we prefer a good proportion of leisurely days with time enough to stop and enjoy the views or take in a cafe break. In other words, he deals with stop and go traffic enough at home!

Last year we were in the Dordogne for two weeks in September, and missed the crowds. I'm guessing it's going to be busier in Provence, but fingers crossed there won't be hordes of tour busses and the roads won't be clogged? Downloaded Via Michelin and packed the GG and maps.

Here we go, and sorry if this post is too long:

Friday, Day 1, arrive in Marseille, 12:40 pm. Collect car, drive to Arles, overnight.

Saturday, Day 2, Explore Arles, drive to St. Remy for seven nights.

Sunday, Day 3, L’Isle Sur la Sorgue market, Petit Luberon (Michelin GG) taking the D901 to D900 and following it to Apt (walking tour) and then the D3 with stops at Bonnieux, Lacoste and Menerbes (if sufficient time).

Monday, Day 4, Les Baux de Provence, Carriere de Lumiere, Glanum, and Les Alpilles driving tour and/or walk or hike from Glanum

Tuesday, Day 5, Camargue, Aigue Morte

Wednesday, Day 6, St. Remy market, possible walk/hike in area, suggestions for an easy day?
Thursday, Day 7, Pont du Gard, Uzes

Friday, Day 8, Avignon, thinking of going into Avignon by bus rather than car, good idea?

Saturday, Day 9, Drive to Bedoin for seven nights stopping in Pernes les Fontaines, maybe Carpentras and Caromb along the way.

Sunday, Day 10, Return to the Luberon via Venasque, with stops at Abbe de Senanque, Village des Bories, Gordes, and Roussillon.

Monday, Day 11, Bedoin market day, easy day, low key suggestions for close to home? Walk or easy hike in the area?

Tuesday, Day 12, NW of Bedoin through Gironda, Seguret and Vaison-la-Romaine circling Dentelles.
Wednesdsay, Day 13, via Mormoiron to Sault and Montbrun via D1 or Gorges-de-la-Nesque (not climbing Mont Ventoux this trip).

Thursday, Day 14, Orange and Chateauneuf-de-Pape

Friday, Day 15, ideas for today?

Saturday, Day 16, drive to Nice, via A8, drop car at airport, bus into town

Sunday, Day 17, explore Nice

Monday, Day 18, bus East to Eze, Villa Ephrussi, Cap d’Ail and Littoral coastal path

Tuesday, Day 19, train west to Cannes and area for the day (or vice versa day 18)

Wednesday, Day 20, bus to airport, home, hope the dog and the house still standing :)
