Nicest coastal village from Avignon airport?

Hi there,

We're staying with our 1 year old for a week near Uzes and then have 3 nights where we fancied going somewhere closer to the coast and yet less than 1.5 hour drive back to Avignon airport as we are flying in and out from there.

Does anyone have a reccomendation as to where may be a beautiful coastal village that isn't too busy in June?

Alternatively is there enough to do in Avignon itself for 3 days with a baby?

Marseillan looks good (?) but it seems to be about 2 hour drive back to the airport.

Any suggestions most welcome - thank you in advance

Louisa

Carry le Rouet is a small beach town/village just under an hour from Avignon airport, although you can never be certain about traffic once you get into the summer months. It's a pretty place and reasonably quiet. There's a pleasant coastal walk with a mainly very good path with little sandy bays.

Also look at Sausset le Pins, another pleasant beach town just along the coast.

About 20/30 minutes further is Cassis; bigger and busier, but very popular with families.

I would second Carry - head for the Plage - easy car parking right behind the beach.
