Best City to stay in Provence?

Doing two days in Cassis and am trying to find another city more inland in Provence to stay in for a couple of nights. Have considered St. Remy, Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Avignon, but just not sure which one would be best. I'm looking for a welcoming town, safe, not too sleepy. Sites I'd like to see include Les Baux and Pont du Gard. If there are any recommendations for the best inland option that would be greatly appreciated.

Also have read about the bull fights in St. Remy that do not actually harm the bull which sound interesting, but wondering if this is regularly occuring or will be happening in early June.

Thank you!

If you want not too sleepy, I'd go for Arles which has very good transport links as well as being full of good things to visit (van Gogh connections, museum, cathedral, river Rhone, five Roman sites).

Watch out that the Van Gogh Fondation is closed for refurbishment and will only reopens in 2014
