Spent too much time in Southern Germany and northern Italy (plus some days in Hungary, Slovenia and Austria) so have to reduce time in southern France before our 90 days are up. Last stop in Italy before driving to France is Milan.
We are thinking of spending seven nights in Aix-en-Provence or Avignon or maybe somewhere someone else suggests.
Where ever we stay it has to be no more than 2.5 hrs from Chauvet Caves (a day trip during our stay in Southern France). We will either drive to The Camargue for three nights/two days before or after our seven night stop in Southern France. After France we will drive to Barcelona for about a week, leave our 4Runner at the airport and fly home to the USA for the holidays.
We are two Americans in out late 60's driving the world since May 2016. We enjoy the outdoors and birding. We never pass up seeing a church in Europe or a temple in India, etc. We enjoy the architecture of buildings (retired construction). Make as many art or historical or archaeological museums/sites as humanly possible. Explored a lot of UNESCO world heritage sites. Enjoy parks -- part of the reason we spent 5.5 months driving Australia. And a liter or bottle of wine should never be missed in our opinion.
Final note -- we have decided to do Monaco/Nice, France at a later date so please don't recommend this as a stop.
Where should we stop for seven nights?
