Subject: New member in Paris with question about the south of France
Hi Pam: You will love the south of France. I have only visited Provence including Cote d'Azur and Riviera twice. It is my favorite part of Europe so far. My advice would be to stay in two places, Villefranche and Aix-en-Provence. From Villefranche visit the perched villages high above the Mediterranean and a town or two along the coast. Then, only about 100 miles away, base in Aix to see the villages in Provence and experience the wonderful feeling of Aix. I recommend Hotel Welcome in Villefranche and the Mercure Paul Cezanne in Aix. When I did this particular trip I landed in Nice and flew home from Marseilles. Whatever you choose to do in Provence, and wherever you stay, I believe you will have a wonderful experience.
