Base for four nights in Provence

Jump to last reply

As part of a two-week trip, a friend and I are tentatively planning to spend four nights (three full days) in Provence. Provence has been on my "list" for awhile, but more as a vague region rather than specific towns, and I'm wondering where would be the best place to base ourselves. I'm thinking of seeing places like Aix, Avignon, and smaller towns still to be researched.

We'll be flying in from London and flying out to Barcelona, I was thinking to/from Marseille? And then renting a car from there (since it seems like seeing the area via public transport is tough). I've read that you can't drive in the center of Aix, so perhaps not the best choice for a base?

I know three days is not long, but it's what we have. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
