We are planning a sightseeing trip to Nice and Provence area this May. Flying via Paris to Nice, we would like to base in Nice for a few days to see Nice, Eze Cannes before taking a TGV train from Nice to Avignon.
From Avignon TGV station, we will likely rent a car to drive to our base. Could you please advise with 5-6 nights, do we base in two places eg St Remy (to see Rhones,/Nims etx) and then move our base to say Apt/Lourmarin to see other interesting villages and sights. We have not make any bookings for the accomodations in Nice and Provence yet. Likely we will book an apt in Nice and B&B in Provence. We are not used to driving on your side so what are the areas we should avoid driving to when in Provence?
Thereafter, we return the rental car at Avignon TGV station and take train to Paris for our trip home.
Would you please comment on this plan.
Thanks so much.
