Most recently we went to Provence to see the lavender fields and spend some time at the beach after flying into Montpellier.
Pros- absolutely beautiful region! Can’t beat being close to (low) mountains, but within about an hour of the beach. The food is divine and the people were nice enough. If you get off the beaten path (or should I say beach), you can get plenty of quiet relaxation in. Old Roman ruins switch it up a bit if you don’t want to spend all of your time looking at flowers or on the beach.
Cons- lodging is very expensive and so are rental cars (60 euro a day…outrageous!).
Espiguette Beach- you can see there isn’t a lot of competition for space
