where to go in Provence with a car ...adding a day or 2 to 4 day trip...

I am spending 4 1/2 full days in Provence (3 by myself and 1 1/2 with 3 sisters ..)
i plan to stay 2 nights in Apt taking a little time to visit the Luberon and surrounding areas..then staying a night in Uzes and after picking sisters up in Nimes, visiting Arles and Nimes and going to stay one night in Aix...back to question is after they leave for Paris , I can choose to stay 2 days more in the area...and then take train from marseille or nimes (where i got the car)
Anyone have suggestions to add 2 days? i am 70 plus years with a bad knee and cannot climb ...ok?

Since u will still have a car ck out lovely small Cassis along the water. The calanques by boat is a wonderful cruise along the waters edge to see the unique limestone coast line. Ck it out . There are lovely views from the hotels and prommenade area. A greatway to end your trip.

Another option is a visit to the Camargue, the largest wetlands in Europe. It is immediately south of Arles and has two charming (and very different) villages: the walled village of Aigues Mort and the seaside town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. If you like nature, this is a wonderful national park with trails for horseback riding or biking. You can see the famous white Camargue horses, the black bulls (and attend a bull "race" if your timing is right) and the elegant pink flamingos (easily seen in the bird sanctuary).
