St. Remy based Provence

Jump to last reply

Arriving in St. Remy late afternoon/early evening on Thursday. We will have all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We will drive to Nimes on Sunday but that still gives us the morning in this area.

Would this work?

I'm reading that Sunday is not a good day to go through the Luberon.

Friday:
St. Remy to Gordes - Roussillon - (that area, not sure on stops or specifics), but spend the morning have lunch in the area, then to Avignon (Michelin says about 90 min. from Roussillon). Spend the afternoon in Avignon (dinner)?(There may be a better plan than Avignon??) and back to St. Remy.

Saturday:
Start early at Pont du Gard (spend the morning and lunch? or lunch at Uzes?), up to Uzes for while and end the day in Arles and back to St. Remy.

Sunday:
Market at Isle -Sur- Sorgue I think we are missing the lavender, although harvest varies. This will be the first week of August. Should we drive to Sault? If so, this would be a good day. If not we could have more time in Arles. Or perhaps there is something else we should see in the area??

Monday:
We could go to Les Baux, spend the morning on our way to Nimes. We would stop for the olive oil tasting near Les Baux on our way to Nimes. They are open on Sunday, but only have tours on Tuesday and Thursday.

On arrival in Nimes we can get checked in, walk around some and find a relaxing place for a glass of wine and dinner!
