Need Help early July Provence Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We we'll be in Provence for 7 days. We're foodies, love people watching, enjoy drives/scenery/exploring, home furnishings shopping/antiquing, museums, historic sites, easy hikes/canoeing/outdoors-lite, and relaxing around a pool. On past Europe trips we have rented VRBO country homes where we can relax around a pool at the end of the day and cook dinner if we choose, and an in-city townhouse/apt. or hotel suite (we have a 16 year old son and need *separation* :)

Question: 1 base (St. Remy or ?) or 2 (we don't mind moving) Uzes + Gordes?

Trying to hit some market days & fleas (do not want to do L'Isle flea this trip)

Tentative itinerary with more questions:

Thurs 6/30/16 drive A8 route to Aix from Nice (2 hrs?) market, leisurely lunch.
Should we make it a full day in Aix staying overnight and departing in am, or drive to St. Remy or ____? by late afternoon?

Fri 7/1 St. Remy?

Sat 7/2 Uzes market day or ?Avignon market: Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, Place du Marche

Sun 7/3 & Mon 7/4: small towns closed.
Options:
-Pont du Gard & Les Baux

-Gordes & Senanque Abbey and then continue on the Lavender Route, per Stu D. (thanks, Stu)

-Fontaine de Vaucleuse, Gordes, Rousillon.

-Colorado de Provence (near Rustrel) Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Oppede les Vieux

Tue 7/5 options: market days in Avignon, Gordes, Vaison-la-Romaine.

Wed 7/6 definite: Arles Flea Market (1st Wed of the month)

Thur 7/7 a.m. activity? Driving to Riviera by noon.
