We will be in Toulon on a cruise in early September. My husband and I have been to France, but none of the rest of my family. I thought about going to St Paul De Vence, as we loved it and it's such a picture perfect village and one good representation of the small villages of France. It is about 1.5 hours from Toulon. (Worried if we dock in La Seyne Sur Mer it is even farther.) (only there 8-4) We're not a fan of the bigness of Marseille. I've looked at Cassis, St Tropez, but they don't seem to have the quaintness.
(1) Are there any other suggestions of villages that can compare to St Paul De Vence?
(2) Would only need transport to and from St Paul, not a full tour. Is there a good reasonable vendor for a van?
