We are planning a trip-late Aug into early Sep, so I think places will still be busy? - with a 2-3 days each based near Le Lavandou and Aix, and then a week near Mt Ventoux.We like a mix of outdoor "activities" (so, for example my husband intends to cycle Ventoux)and plenty of relaxing and enjoying the ambience, so any tips to share would be v welcome, plus help with a few specifics:
Is it possible to get to Bormes les Mimosas from le lavandou without a car?
And on a short trip, is the boat out to Porquorelles or Port Cros worth it (in Aug!)?
Thinking about Cassis on way to Aix, is that a good idea, and how best to see les Calanques?
The Camargue looks confusing, where best to make for with just a day?
And in first week of Sept, does anyone know if taking one of the canoe options to Pont du Gard is likely to be good, or a motorway on water?
Any views much appreciated.
