What region in the South of France?

Hello,
I want to travel for two weeks in July to the South of France. I have been to Nice-Cannes-Monaco-Villefrance-Arles-Eze-Antibes-Gordes and Avignon. I loved these places. If I go to the same area, where is someplace new that I have missed? My second option is the Languedor-Roussillon region which I have never been. I don't want to be disappointed, since I liked the previous places a lot. Is it worth flying to Montpellier and visiting near villages with train? Or should I do a split between this region and the Nice area? How far is it by train? I love the warm weather, farmers markets, colorful buildings, cafes, and countryside look. Thanks for your help!

How about Vaison la Romaine, Carpentras, Isle sur la Sorgue, Lourmarin, and Roussillon? You could also include Marseille and Cassis to the south, maybe do a week in two different places. Also to the west are Uzes, Pont du Gard, St Remy. Lots of choices but you really should rent a car.

I second Grier's ideas. We spent 10 days in Provence-2 in Le Lavandou for the beach, 5 in Lourmarin (with trips to Gordes, Roussillon, Gorges de Verdon, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and 3 in Vaison la Romaine with its wine loop. Nice markets abound. Send p.m. for more info.
