We just got back after spending over two weeks in Provence. We were based in Carpentras (baby sitting some friends critters while they went to Greece). We had a great time, and drove and explored somewhere different each day. The weather was fantastic; we even had some 80 degree days!
We will need some info; will you have a car? What do you like to do or see? Where are you staying? What type of lodging? (why the lodging question? We shopped many of the huge and awesome markets,[Sundays; Isle sur la Sorgue!!!!) did wine tasting, and then brought our spoils "home" to make fantastic dinners. French law is really strict on alcohol consumption, so we stayed at 'home' and drank many wonderful local wines with our dinners. )
I can't stress how much we like to use Rick's book to pick and choose itineraries. And don't forget to go to the local TI and pick up the brochures. Lots of good ideas there. Much of the area is flat and there are some good biking options if this is your thing. We headed for the coast on the two really warm days. (They have some awesome boat tours out of Cassis, with all types of pricing and journey times.)One day we explored the Carmague, saw the pink Flamingos and wild horses, then headed for a lunch on the beach at Sante Marie de la Mare. My bother's girlfriend went swimming in the Med there! (too cold for the rest of us.)
We saw the Roman coliseum In Arles and Orange, drove the wine road of the Cote du Rhone, and had wondrful lunches at small town each day on our drives.
There is so much to see and do. Let us know what "floats your boat".
