St Remy area for Provence base?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Europe this September, and would like advise on a base for Southern France.
We are a mid-fifties Canadian couple and hope to have a mix of culture/outdoors activites on our first visit to Europe as adults (we both went with our families during our teens way back in the 70's!)
We plan on 3 weeks including:
Jersey Channel Islands - visit family, outdoor activities - 5 days
Brittany/Normandy - 3 or 4 days
Paris - 3 days
.....here's the gap 4 days
Malaca Spain - 5 days meeting friends for relaxing beach days

I am thinking of the train from Paris to either Aix or Marseille and staying in one spot to use as a base for day trips but enjoy good dining and perhaps beach or pool at the end of the day. We could rent a car and do some day trips to Cote D'Azure, Avignon etc.
Is St. Remy too far inland to enjoy the coast? Should we pick a spot closer to the coast to stay and then do a few in-land trips?

Advice please!
