Help finalizing Provence Itinerary (based in St. Remy)

Jump to last reply

Could you help me finalize my itinerary? We are big on food, markets, unique sites and then ruins.

We are flying into Paris and directly taking the train to Avignon, arriving in the evening on April 11 (Saturday). Since, it will be late and we will be tired from the flight, we decided to stay one night in Avignon and renting a car the next day:

Sunday: Start the day in Avignon, explore old town, pick up rental car at TGV and head to Chateauneuf du Pape for their annual Chateauneuf Festival. If time permits, visit, the Musee du Vin Brotte. Head to St. Remy and check into our apartment.

Monday: Head to villages of Luberon, including Isle Sur la Sorgue, Gordes, Roussillion. I read that the antique market in Isle Sur la Sorgue will still be open on Monday. SHould Lourmarin or Bonnieux be added?

Tuesday: Main target is Cassis. Given the weather won't be warm enough for the beaches, can I squeeze in Arles and/or Carmague?

Wednesday: St. Remy Market, Visit Van Gogh's Asylum and head to Les Baux. If no time for Arles on Tuesday, can I fit Arles in between St. Remy and Les Baux. I heard Les Baux has a good sunset and food near Paradou, so would like to finish there before going home to St. Remy.

Thursday - Head back to Avignon for 13:00 train to Paris.

Ideally, I would like some down time to explore the patisseries and stores in St. Remy. Also, where can I squeeze in pont du gard
Also, open to restaurant suggestions along my itinerary.

many, many thanks in advance!
