I have been researching gite accommodation for our first week in France in the Luberon area (Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux or similar) but this area is approx. a 5 - 6 hour drive from Menton. Even the area around Manosque is approx. 5 hours drive away.
After researching thought that the above regions were central for exploring villages and countryside of Provence. Is this so?
I would appreciate advice on where to stay after we collect our rental car at noon, either on the way for one night or another possibility for the entire week, considering our preferences to villages and countryside.
Thank you in advance,
