Carcassonne - Villefranche Sur Mer

Hello, myself and my boyfriend are travelling by car from Carcassonne to Villefrance Sur Mer on the 25th of this month (very excited!!). Could anyone suggest some nice, scenic places to stop off, picturesque towns/ vine yards, places for lunch along the route etc.? To clarify we will probably take the A9/8 motor way. The shear volume of options available has overwhelmed me so any suggestions are really appreciated!

If you are planning to drive on one day only I would suggest yo go straight..... It will be a long drive and it will probably be very hot.

If you want to stop at nice places along the way, you could stop for Lunch in Arles.

You will also pass Aix en Provence (but this is a rather bigger city)...

I love driving through small roads but when I do I simply need to double & and half the motorway driving time...

If you want the most dramatic scenic road this is the Golden corniche between St Raphael/Frejus & Cannes. But beware that the motorway drive between those 2 cities is about 45mn and the scenic road can take you up to 3 hrs....
