Hi - my wife and I are planning to spend 5-6 days in South France in mid August. We land in Nice and fly back from Nice too - but given various posts, I'm tempted to shift our base to somewhere in the Provence area rather than sticking to Nice. Might someone be able to opine here please?
We would definitely be much more interested in getting to know the French villages / culture rather than just ticking off places that we've been to. Also, we're planning to hire a car, so perhaps that helps?
Finally, we'd ideally like to stay put in one base, but if we choose Provence, then we have to take a hotel in Nice for at least one day, so perhaps we could cover Provence in 3-4 days and spend the rest of the time in Nice?
Thanks again all! This forum and all your help is super!
