Cote D'Azur and Provence in September

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are thinking of a little trip to France, a kind of last minute idea. We probably have 10 nights, maybe 11 and would like to fly from NYC to Nice and return from Paris to NYC. I know we don't have a lot of time, but would like to see as much as possible. I just read Stududley's trip notes and will try to take some information from there.

I thought we could stay 2 nights in Nice, drive to St Tropez, maybe stay the night ( I don't know the driving distance) and then several nights in Provence- maybe St Remy. I would like to see Aix, Arles and of course, some small towns, villages with nice views, scenery. We would rent a car when we leave Nice and return in to Avignon , where we would take the train to Paris. I need to spend a few nights in Paris, as it is my most favorite place.

Any ideas are welcome. I know September is not as pretty as the lavendar season in June and July but this is tthe time we have. We are seasoned European travelers with driving experience in France. We also tend to be budget travelers, choosing hotels that are clean but not fancy, and are not gourmet diiners. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
