We plan to fly US to Nice, France arriving at 9 pm. Our plan is to spend time in Provence and Dordogne. We will have about 13 nights total including our arrival night in Nice. We would likely stay at an airport hotel that first night, planning to leave for Provence the next morning. We would either rent a car in Nice or in Avignon.
We really were not planning on spending time in the south of France, but now I wonder if we should since we are right there? Would it be doable to spend just a few hours before we leave for Provence?
Any suggestions? We could have a car or not, but we would have our bags unless we could leave them and retrieve them later.
We are not interested in sitting on the beach but just seeing the coast or even going up to Monaco. Not sure how doable it is for a half a day or how easy the drive would be?
