I will be visiting the languedoc region for 5 weeks in May 2015, staying in Capestang, followed by another 6 weeks in the Luberon near Apt.
There will be a number of friends visiting both locations for approx 2 weeks at a time.
We will be planning a number of day trips from each locale and my plan is to alternate between shorter days visiting the local villages, and longer days for particular points of interest.
In Languedoc we are definitely planning to visit Carcassonne, the Cathar castles, some of the beach towns, Pezenas, and venturing farther afield to Uzes, Pont de Gard, Nimes, Avignon, Arles, definitely the Camargue, Sommieres and surrounding villages etc.
My question is whether the more distant locations could be a bit too ambitious for a day trip?
If not, we could possibly combine some of them within the same day.
