The French Riviera & Provence

When you finish in Nice, the hub of the Côte D’Azur, you’ll leave the Mediterranean shores and head inland to a region that oozes seduction. Not only is this region drenched in sunshine 300 days of the year, its landscape is diverse and its pretty wee hilltop villages so enticing, you will simply want to explore more.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a compact size car for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.

Itinerary
Day 1: Nice – Mougins – Grasse – St Paul de Vence (98km)
Stop for café au lait in the village of Mougins, home to Picasso and the place where he died. Take a tour of Fragonard perfumery in the world’s perfume capital, Grasse, then onto the art lover’s paradise, St Paul de Vence.
Day 2: St Paul de Vence – Gourdon – St Paul de Vence (50kms)
Discover this charming town, visiting the antique shops and art galleries, all housed in 16th & 17th century buildings along cobbled pedestrianised lanes. Off the beaten track is Gourdon, a magical village perched at an altitude of 760 metres on the edge of a rocky spur above the Loup River. Explore the Provençal boutiques, the art galleries and superb restaurants.
Day 3: St Paul de Vence – Aix En Provence (170kms)
Stroll around the ramparts and absorb views of the Alps and the
Mediterranean before driving to Aix.
Day 4: Aix-En-Provence – Ménerbes – L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (93km)
Discover the pedestrian streets of the old town of Aix, home to Cézanne, and enjoy coffee along the tree-lined Cours Mirabeau before heading off to Ménerbes, in the heart of the Luberon. Designated a Regional Nature Park, this is a stunning place to escape. End the day in the riverside town of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.
Day 5: L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue – Gordes – Roussillon – Avignon (85km)
The Luberon landscape is an explosion of brilliant colour. Marvel at the ochre clad countryside, the vineyards and cherry orchards dotting the hillsides, the terraced fields and the shady squares in the town centres.
Day 6: Avignon
Explore the old town of Pont D’Avignon. It’s small and compact with ancient ramparts surrounding the historical town and the magnificent Papal Palace.

Head to Paris or continue over to the Rhône & Alps
