Provence, France - 9 days

Jump to last reply

Hi there

We're after some feedback on our plan for Provence. We're a family of 5 with small children and are travelling in about three weeks time. We like visiting markets, the outdoors, historic sites.

We are staying close to Orange for 5 nights (we have booked a Gite) and then plan to head to Camargue for three nights/days (nothing booked yet). We have a car. Then drive on towards Spain.

I feel like we might be missing something with this trip. Would love some feedback.

Thanks for your help

We won't necessarily do these in this order

Day 1 - Arrive
Day 2 - Pont du Gard and Nimes?? [1 hr to Pont du Gard or 1.5 hrs to Nimes each way]
Day 3 - Orange [20 min each way]
Day 4 - Gordes and Abbaye Notre Dame de Senanque [1.5 hrs each way]
Day 5 - Avignon [40 min each way]

Day 6 - Baux-de-Provence and Carrières de Lumières ?? on way to Arles. Overnight Arles [2 hrs total to Arles]
Day 7 - Camargue (Le Sambuc, Le Point de Vue, Plage de Piemanson, Domaine de la Palissade)
Day 8 - Camargue (Parc Ornithologique de Pont de Gau and overnight Stes-Maries-de-la-Mer)
Day 9 - Leave
