Four days in Provence including a Sun & Mon

Jump to last reply

I’m in the midst of planning a longer itinerary for two weeks in France the end of September and need help with the Provence ‘section’ of the trip. It’s going to be my mother and I, driving a car from Sarlat, arriving on Sunday and leaving from Aix on Wednesday night for a train back to Paris for our flight Thursday morning. The flights are already booked (using points, hence the traveling back to Paris) and I believe the last train leaves at around 6:00 PM so we have a pretty full day to use up Wednesday. My problem is trying to figure out when to visit the towns on our list given the Sun/Mon constraints of shops not being open, and trying to visit few on market days. We are staying in St. Remy at Hotel de I'Image, but I just received an email that Château des Alpilles does have availability during out stay. My only issue with Château des Alpilles is that it’s outside of town and I think we’ll want to be able to walk to dinner, etc. in the evening and not have to drive. Anyone have thoughts on that, or alternative suggestions? Budget is about $200-$250/night. We would like to visit the following towns and so far I have the itinerary as:

Sunday: Avignon, Roussillon, (Gordes?)
Monday: Uzes, Pont du Gard
Tuesday: Aix-en-Provence, Arles
Wednesday: St. Remy (market day)/Les Baux

Thank you for all your help and as always, open to any of your suggestions (it’s where I get most of my travel ideas!)
