Avignon/Menerbes/St Remy/Arles Itinerary Check (Sep 2021)

bigjppop | Sep 28, 202105:26 AM    

I’m on my way to Provence this weekend and I’m pretty excited for the trip. This will be my second visit and focusing a little more on the western side. I’ve received some good tips from this group and wanted to make sure I’m not missing anything.

Thursday arrival in Marseille then picking up the rental car and heading to Menerbes for dinner at La Bastide. Lots of good comments on this place, seems like a good spot for my first dinner in the evening. Overnight here.

Friday morning getting up and making my way to Gigondas for lunch at l’Oustalat. Another place with lots of great recommendations. Leisurely lunch then a little exploring before moving on to St. Remy. I have a 1730 time slot at Carrieres des Lumieres and then am thinking of maybe later dinner at Bistro du Paradou. I still need to make a reservation, just don’t want to kill myself that day with two big meals. I’ll overnight in St Remy.

Saturday morning get up early to see Pont du Gard and then on to Uzes. No plans, just exploring. I’ll make my way back to Avignon for a late lunch at La Mirande. I was hoping to do their special dinner in the basement, but all full. After lunch explore Avignon. I still need a dinner for Saturday night, but ideally something lighter. Anyone have a favorite wine bar? Overnight in St Remy.

Sunday morning get up and make my way to Arles. I’ll spend the day exploring there, just need an idea for Sunday lunch. Later in the day make my way back to Marseille for a 2000 flight home.

Anyone have any suggestions for things I should consider? Anything I’ve missed?

Looking forward to some sun and nice weather this weekend!
