We are two girls and want to visit the lavender fields in Provence this summer (hopefully it is not too late to start planning). We read that it is the best to get a car rental when visiting South France. If we decide not to go with the local tour and want to do self-touring, is it safe to drive in Provence for two girls? Or do you still recommend joining local tours instead?
We have heard some people got their rental car broke in by thieves and lost their belongings when driving and parking in the countryside.....
