Re: Where's a Warm Spot for March

DrFumblefinger ·
Welcome, Gulliver, and two weeks will give you a nice break. I'm not sure where you're traveling from. Easiest and cheapest place for a warm break from North America is to head south, especially to Florida or the Caribbean, or from the West coast to Hawaii or Arizona. But the south of Europe is also quite nice this time of year. Italy, Sicily, Greece are places I'd consider going, depending on what interests you and where you've traveled before. Do any of these interest you? Are you...

I know you've seen it already, P., but for the sake of others following your plans, I'll post this link to a recent short Conde Nast piece about Uzes, a place I stayed a week and liked very much. They call it un-Provence.

Nearest St-Remy: - Don't miss Les Baux . The village is touristy but the castle complex on top is fantastic and the views are to die for - you don't need to be a fan of scenery to appreciate them. - Roman ruins of Glanum , walking distance from St-Remy - Arles for more Roman ruins (but I think you've been already?) Farther away: - Day-trip to the Luberon for unmatched scenery and charming little villages full of vernacular architecture - what people build themselves, without an architect.

Thanks for the comprehensive thoughts! We have been in Arles and Aix...not for as long as I'd have liked, but I think we'll have to include Avignon this time (nearby, and only got an hour of our time before). I'm leaning to the idea of one day for the Luberon, one for Avignon and the rest closer to "home"--although the roast chicken is calling me! We're arriving in St-Remy around 9ish on Wednesday, with an apartment just behind the main part of the market (hope we can get through to the...

Unless your accommodations have private parking, I'd arrive really early on Wednesday. The market starts at 9am. If you're there by 8 or 8:30, you should be able to snag parking reasonably close. I haven't been to the market in St-Remy, but given its size, I bet the roast chicken truck will be there too.

Good point, and sent me scurrying back to the Airbnb details page—and fortunately, there's on-premise parking. That's good, because we're picking up the car at Avignon TGV at about 8:40. An earlier train would be more expensive and less pleasant... We're staying at a hotel in Marseille that's just at Gare St-Charles, and considered picking the car up there...but decided that leaving central Marseille in the rush hour might not be our favorite thing...and also adds about 54€ to the rental for...

Where's a Warm Spot for March

Former Member ·
I'm set for two weeks off next March before starting a new job...and I'd like to take in some Europe, but not where it's still too cold. I don't need a beach or anything...just somewhere that I can count on not needing a winter coat. Suggestions? Kill...

We will be in Saint-Remy de Provence, with car, for five days in late July and would appreciate suggestions for a couple of daytrips from there, and also for worthwhile sights and activities in the immediate area.   Jetlag should not be an issue;...
