My wife and I plan to drive from Barcelona to Provence in early-March for a few days and are trying to decide between Avignon or St. Remy as a base.
Given that it will be offseason, we wonder if the larger Avignon is more desirable. St. Remy, however, seems to be more central to Avignon, Arles, and Les Baux, the areas we hope to visit during our stay.
Also, we would appreciate any thoughts on driving from Barcelona to Provence. Given our schedule, this seems to be the best way to maximize our time (vs. taking the train).
