we are an Australian family who will be travelling this year and after two weeks in Paris will be in Provence for 4 weeks before heading to Italy.
We love to sink into a culture and travel slowly. Our children will be stimulated by living within France and do not need theme park type places to visit.
Just a beach, some woods?, a park, icecream etc.
So, I have been reading the forums as we have never visited this area of France before and have found lovely houses to rent in Roussillon and St Remy and Avignon.
Also near the beach Antibes or Villefranche seem to be the places recommended to families.
What do you think?
Another beach place that has been recommended (not in Provence though) is Montelivet, Medoc. Anyone been?
I am open to all suggestions such as time in each place, where, opinions on anything really.
ETA: we will catch the train from Paris to Avignon and hire a car from there, although may get rid of it when we hit the coast.Edited: 15 January 2013, 02:41
