Driving from Arles to Les Baux, St. Remy, Gordes, etc.

Is it possible to do the following in one day and enjoy it ?

From Arles, drive to Les Baux, then St. Remy, then Gordes, then Vaison La Romaine to Orange, then to Avignon and back to Arles.

Or if not, which places would you recommend ?

Merci!

I second janeharriet's suggestion to spend a day visiting St. Remy, especially if you can do so on Wednesday (ie. Market Day ). Following the Market, you sohuld think about visiting:

- the wonderful Roman ruins (Glaunum) on the outskirts of St. Remy

-the Medieval ruins of Les Baux which are only about a 15 minute drive

away

There are a number of wonderful places to enjoy a mid-day meal in St. Remy, including the Bistrot des Alpilles which is situated on the Blvd. Mirabeau (good regional food at quite reasonable prices) , or you may want to consider another one of our favorites, the Bistrot de Paradou which is in Paradou, not far from Les Baux.

Inner, you should pose your question as a new post to get advice tailored to your trip. Get Michelin Green Guide to Provence and study it to decide what interests you. My advice is to plan a generous portion of your limited time in the Luberon.

Hi Innercompass,

Since you have only 4 days to explore Provence, in order to make any valid recommendations regarding where you should establish your base we REALLY need to know what you want to see and do - Roman ruins, Medieval ruins, wine-country, Med-rim places ....

Late July is in the high tourist season, so you do need to make your plans/reservations ASAP. Hope to hear from you soon.
