Hi, two adults and two kids (15, 13) will spend about 7 days in Provence area this July (will take TGV from Paris where we will spend 7 days before going to Provence.)First time there. I am overwhelmed with ideas and activities! Can anyone point me in the right direction with some quick suggestions? Here are the details of things we might like to do and see:
-water: fish, kayak, swim, etc.
-maybe one wine or lavender tour (kids not super into it)
-no strict budget on hotels; maybe stay in two places for a few nights each?
-would consider renting a home or apartment
-would consider seaside resort for part of the time
-room quality is less important as we are out most of the time
-can rent a car if that is best way to get around
-interested in "grand canyon"; hike, kayak/swim?
-willing to hire a personal guide for a couple of days
-open to all areas of Provence; never been there
-taking TGV from/to Paris so must consider that
-willing to do some driving touring but prefer not to spend each day in a car all day
-want to see small town life as well as ocean/city
Any help is appreciated. Two months of planning and we still can decide on a plan and it is getting late to book!
