I'm planning a trip to the south of France, starting in Paris and ending in Marseille. I thought of taking a train into Marseille or Aix-en-Provence and from there renting a car to spend a few days in the Luberon, before ending back in Marseille. Does anyone have experiencing renting a car in this area? Would there be much of a price difference renting in Aix vs Marseille vs L'Isle sur la Sorgue, for example? (Or renting in Aix but returning in Marseille...) Specific rental recommendations would also be appreciated.
Also, I'm overwhelmed by reading about the villages in the Luberon. I expect to arrive in the area Monday after lunch and head to Marseille Wednesday morning, so it's not a lot of time. General route recommendations to maximize the time would be great. I'm also wondering what village(s) to spend the night in — I would love to find a small B&B in the area rather than driving back to Aix or another city for the night. Under 100 euros/night would be preferable.
