Itinerary advice -- Provence in early Oct.

Jump to last reply

We will be spending 3 1/2 days in Provence in early October. This will be our first trip to the region and we know it's not nearly enough time to do the area justice. We want to make the most of our time without running ourselves ragged. Our interests lean more towards villages and scenery than cities, ancient ruins vs museums. Of course the latter could change if the weather is rainy!

We'll be staying in St. Remy for 4 nights, arriving in Avignon via train on a Monday, mid-afternoon. We will be renting a car at the train station. We are reluctant to leave our luggage in the car, but our check-in time isn't until 17:00. So the first question is whether there is anything we can do over those 3 or 4 hours (perhaps near Avignon but that keeps the luggage safe) after we arrive but before we drive to our hotel in St. Remy? Alternatively, we should be able to drive directly to St. Remy and drop off our luggage then head back out.

The 3 full days we'll have in the region will be a Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We were thinking that we might like to take a drive each day to a different area, with sightseeing/driving in the morning, followed by a charming lunch locale, followed by some more sights.

We know we'd like to see the light/music show at Les Baux and friends have said that l'Oustalet in Gigondas was one of their favorite meals. The town of Uzes is currently on our short list. A village market morning is also something we'd like to do. We love good food and are interested in tasty meals that are served in lovely settings.

What itinerary might you recommend for 3 wonderful days? Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!

Best, Roberta
