Where to stay in Provence

We will be travelling from Barcelona to France. We don't know whether to travel by plane or train.

Also we will be staying a few days in Nice before flying home to Australia on 6 August.

We would like to stay somewhere other than a major city as we have been travelling for 5 months and are now a bit tired :) As we do not have a car we need to be somewhere near public transport, so getting from Barcelona to ? needs to be an easy journey. We also need to be able to get from ? to Nice easily, of course. I have thought about Avignon, Marseilles, we have seen many medieval cities, so something different and peaceful would be nice. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks again,

The fast train now serves Barcelona to France routes, but time and money wise you may be better flying Vueling or EasyJet, both of which have good connections from Barcelona El Prat (the nearest airport).

I assume you're staying in Nice bc you want to be close to the airport. Since you say you don't want to be in a city look at Villefranche sur mer instead.

Do you already have accommodations in Nice? If not, you'll need to get that sorted ASAP.
