If not St. Remy, Arles, or Aix...then where please?

Hello - I have been perusing the threads and love the wealth of information - Thank you for all of your contributions to my research too!

My Mum and I are planning a trip for September...Provence our location of choice now...we will rent a car and I will drive to explore. I am first trying to imagine a home base....and have developed some ideas of what to consider...I would like a central location for our week long trip to Provence. I would like a spot that has walking distance to restaurants as I do not want to get caught with too much wine in my head. But I do appreciate the idea of not being caught in heavy traffic in any of these towns or spending our precious days looking for parking. See I have been paying attention.

I have been previously and briefy in Provence and it filled my heart with joy....I stayed in Nimes and visited Aix, Arles and Les Baux, La Turbie too?? Or am I making this up? So I want a home base for this trip so we can really explore and indulge...thoughts please?

I will try to answer this as best possible...with my limited knowledge...

I would love to see again Arles and Aix... I want to see the hilltop villages like Les Baux - we love Antiques, wine, art adn architecture, history...herbes de Provence...pottery...not helpful I guess.

Maybe we do look at options in Arles or Aix so that we can stick with the dining out and walking. As I am with Mum and will be away from my husband and children i think that sticking with the plan of walking at night is good...if I was there with my hubby I can't imagine anything more decadent than returning to our rental with bread, wine and other decadence of the region....but Mum and I are not such scintillating company as that....so a little people watching, some culture in the evening is top of the list.

Thank you for your speedy response it is helpful!
