Jump to last reply

so I have gathered information from you wavy travelers about our France vacation and now need to decide which itinerary and would appreciate feedback.We begin our trip May 25th in Paris for 8 nights and I am fine with this portion which includes museum visits and hopefully French Open tickets. Now here is where the choice comes in whether to spend the our next 15 days in Provence or Provence and Dordogne . We have been to Nice before but only for a couple of nights.

I value your well thought out suggestions since many of you have spent much time in this area.

Option 1
May 25th till June 2nd- Paris
Day8- Paris to Dordogne- flight with HOP 8:55 arv 10:10 @ Brive Valle, or could take the bus. regardless rent a car where ever we arrive. Visit Collonges la Rouge . Overnite in Sarlat 4 nights
Day 9-Wednesday- Sarlat market and canoe trip
Day 10-Thursday-visit one of the prehistoric sites and one of the chateaus
Day 11 Friday free day for driving tour
Day12-SaturdayTo Rocamadour then to St. Cirq Lapopie not sure where we will stay this night
Day 13- Sunday- drive stop in Florac and St Enime and then to St Remy 4 nights
Day 14- Monday- Van Gogh tour @10:00, visit asylum
Day 15- Tuesday- Free day maybe Lourmarin
Day 16- St. Remy market, then afternoon to Les Baux
Day 17- Thursday-Avignon then drive to Vaison La Romaine 2 nights
Day 18 Friday- cooking class, wine tour
Day19- Saturday to Gordes and Rousillon and the to Isle Sur la Sorgue (overnight some where in area 3 nights)
Day 20- Sunday Isle sur la Sorgue market,
Day 21-Monday- Day trip to Menebes, Bonnieux and Lourmarin
Day 22-Tuesday- drive some where closer to Marseille for departure tomorrow
Day 23 Depart Marseille @ 10:40

Option2 This option has at lease one extra day to put some place. I do not know much of Cassis and seem to have a bit more time there then thought so certainly open to ideas if this is the option we choose.
May 25th till June 2nd- Paris
Day8- Tuesday-Paris to Vaison la Romaine , public transportation. One Fodorites said we could do the train to Orange. Is this the best way to reach Vaison la Romaine. We would rent a car then. Overnite there for 3 nights
Day 9 Wednesday- cooking class
Day 10 Thursday- visit wineries either on our own or with a tour
Day 11 Friday- to Isle Sur la Sorgue overnight 4 nights
Day 12 day trip to Gordes and Rousillon
Day 13 Sunday- market and afternoon canoe trip
Day 14 Monday-day trip to Menerbes, Bonnieux
Day 15 Tuesday-To Avignon and then St. Remy 4 nights
Day 16 WednesdaySt Remy market and then Les Baux
Day 17 Thursday-Van Gogh tour @10:00, visit asylum
Day 18 Friday-day trip to Lourmarin
Day 19 Saturday- Aix en Provence then to Cassis
Day 20 Sunday boat trip
