Provence questions and Saint Remy to Nice driving route

Hey everyone!
In mid-June, we, 2 mid-40s couples, will be staying 4 nights in Saint Remy and then driving to Nice for 4 nights where we will drop off the car and use public transportation. We want to see beautiful villages, markets and scenery. I having been doing a fair amount of research on what we want to see and just want confirmation that my itinerary ideas are reasonable.

We will have three full days in Provence. I am very interested in the Luberon so want to devote 2 full days there. Thinking about dividing it up into 2 separate days, North/South.
-Monday the 11th, hoping to beat the crowds, we would start the day at Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque(I know the lavender might not be in season yet) at 10am, swing through Gordes and have lunch, move on to Roussillon and then make our way back to Saint Remy for supper.
-Tuesday, Cucuron and hit the market, grab stuff for lunch, head to Bonnieux for a walk around and Pont Julien, eat lunch whenever. Kinda lost after this. There so many cool towns I would like to explore in the afternoon- Goult, Lacoste, Menerbes, Oppede les vieux. Cant do them all. Thoughts?
-Wednesday-See how we feel. Hit market day in Saint Remy, see Glanum, Les Baux? Arles for the Coliseum? See how it goes.
-Thursday-Begin driving by 6:30-7am(we are early morning people), hit Moustiers-Sainte-Marie around 9ish, drive along 952/955 to Bargeme, stopping along the way to admire the gorge. lunch in Bargeme and a walk around the town, drive to Gourdon for the view/town and then to Nice. Hope to be in Nice by 5. Should give us 2 hours in Moustier, 1.5 or so in Bargeme and 1 hour in Gourdon before heading to Nice. Long day I know. According to google maps this should be reasonable?

Feeling pretty good about what we are doing in and around Nice so don't want to bore anyone there. Would also take advice on any favorable dining expierences in Saint Remy. Plan on eating their 4 nights. Thinking 20-40$ per entree price range but flexible. I know its been addressed before but thought I would ask. Thanks again for everyone's time.
