Hi I'm Allison, I am planning to visit the south of France around May 8-12th (maybe more days) and have a list of possible places I would like to visit such as Nice, French Riviera, St. Tropez, Aix-en-Provence, Cathars Castles, Marseille, Avignon. I'm not sure how many places I can get to in that time span but I would love to hear back from you to discuss possible travel plans. Thanks!
