We are planning on heading to Provence for 5 nights in mid January 2009. We haven't been to Provence before so looking for tips!
We plan to get the train from Paris, but we are happy to hire a car if necessary once we arrive.
We are open to where we stay in Provence, but would perhaps like to stay somewhere not too busy. Perhaps in a house/cottage/apartment as opposed to a hotel. Somewhere suitable to do day trips to other places would be great though.
Also, after our stay in Provence, we are heading to Florence, Italy, so any suggestions about the best way to get there from the south of France would be fantastic.
