Exactly where you should establish your base should, in large part, depend upon what places you want to visit while you are in Western Provence, AND, whether you want to be based in a more urban situation, or are seeking a small-town / village as your base.

The region is full of wonderful really important Roman and Medieval sites, that are easily explored form a well-centered base, however, since you only have 4 days to explore a rather large area, I urge you to decide which sites are must-sees for you, and get back to us with your list. Once we have your list we can make really valid recommendations regarding a valid base.

Personally I would think of going to a small hotel in one of the villages in the region rather than staying in the larger towns like Aix or Avignon. Much easier for access and parking.

Have a look at the Mas du Capoun. Never stayed there but have eaten there often and it is very good. Situated in a small village with easy acces to Avignon, Arles and St Remy.

Hi Kathy,

I'll be happy to share the Word docs. with you, but urge you to remove your post, as it has your e-mail, and it is really NOT a good idea to post your e-mail on the web.
