Itinerary Ideas-Which region South of France

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will have 5 days to spend in Southern France during the 3rd-4th week of June. I am looking for some itinerary advice based on a few factors
We are traveling by train from Lyon, and will be using AirBnB, Couchsurfer to stay (open to hostels/hotels if available)
I don't know which region would be best for us considering the amount of time we have.
Ruins (especially Roman), beautiful landscapes and villages are what we would most like to see. We recognize there will necessarily be some time spent in cities, but don't know which ones are most centrally located to the feaures and sites we will want to visit. We would like to stay "off the beaten path," and out of the most touristy areas, to the maximum extent possible, recognizing this is nigh impossible in France during this season.

I've seen a lot of people refer to Langudoc-Roussillon, Provence and Cote d'Azur, and am looking for advice on where we can get the most bang for our buck given the short amount of time we have and interest in ruins, landscapes and villages, especially the less traveled ones.
