best way here

What is the best way here from Paris? Does one have to rent a car or can you arrive by train?

No we don't have to go to Les Baux. I was able to reserve a room at Le Prince Noir and thought it looked amazing. However, Eze looks just like what I was after as well. Do you need a rental car there? I know we would in Les Baux. You guys are fantastic!

I had assumed you had booked accommodation in Les Baux and that that was the end of the story but if not...

No you don't really need a car in Èze if you don't mind taking the bus from Nice. You could get there by taxi of course but taxis in and around Nice tend to be expensive. You can also take a bus from Èze down to Monte Carlo. In fact you can make a circular trip by taking the bus to MC, the train to Nice and the bus back to Èze.

Other possibilities very close to Nice would be St. Paul de Vence and Tourettes-sur-Loup but accommodations in the latter are a bit sparse.

Irish, I was replying to what I thought was a question about going from Paris to Nice to Les Baux. So no, I don't have a better idea about how to get to Rome.

Sorry. I misunderstood. I thought the Paris-Nice-Les Baux issue had already been dealt with.

While I find Western Provence far more interesting than the Riviera/Cote d'Azur - since you only have 3 days to spend in the South of France, and are heading to Rome - you should just spend your time along the Riviera. Do Western Provence on your next trip to France.

Hopefully, your next trip will be more focused, and you will allow yourselves an opportunity to REALLY explore one or two regions.

With regard to the choice between Eze and Les Baux - IMHO, Les Baux wins, hands down! Why? Because Les Baux has many other important historical sites relatively nearby, including St. Remy, and Arles, Avignon, Orange, AIgues Mortes (down in the Camargue), Vaison-la-Romaine, etc.

But, if you just want to spend some time along the Med rim, in an area where the beaches tend to be more stony as opposed to super sandy, go for anywhere close to Nice.
