I am planning to take 4 adults and 2 children from Paris to the south of France for 6 days. I am thinking of using Avignon as a home base to explore the region with a rental car and using the TGV from Paris to arrive. I've read other blogs to stay at the Holiday Inn Kryiad near the Avignon TGV station as a home base to avoid parking and driving hassels in town. Day trips I'm interested in is to the Cotes du Rhone Vineyards area, Nimes and Arles.
Is this a reasonable itenerary before heading to Nice for 2 nights and Paris by train?
I also plan on staying in Nice for 2 nights at the end of the trip, returning to Paris via TGV. I would appreciate some suggestions to maximize these 6 days.
