We were there at Easter and had a wonderful time. We used the fllnowiog itineraries and websites;These are in French.For sites in English:I hope you find them as helpful as we did. You do not mention what your favourite hobbies are or the ages of the people in your party. There are things to do there that cater for every taste and age group.PS. I see from the information which you have added that you are travelling as a couple as we did. This gives you greater flexibility as you can suit yourselves. We are not into water sports, but we did some walking from La Palud -sur-Verdon and near the lake at Ste -Croix. We did a considerable amount of touring though we avoided the coast on this trip. I like the old villages and towns perched on crests of hillsides. There are some dramatic views over the gorges at Point Sublime and from the bridge at L'Arturby.We are into culture and visited Moustiers, because of its renown faience ware which is still hand decorated, and its comprehensive Museum. There is an attractive 17th century chateau at Aiguines. The narrow streets of Castellane are very picturesque and the walk up to Notre-Dame du Roc is exhausting but well worth the effort. Being interested in the Provence described by the writers Bosco and Giono we went further afield into the Luberon. We stopped at Greoux-les-Bains as we were interested by the traditional Santons made for the Christmas cribs and which are fashioned into representations of all sorts of characters, from the poacher and the fisherman to the miller or the mayor.September is a good period to go as school holidays are over, and traffic is calmer. The weather is pleasantly warm without the violent storms which can occur at the height of the summer.Since you are there for a fortnight, you have enough time to go down to the coast. On the other hand you may prefer to stay inland and visit historical towns like Aix.Be careful driving and beware those airpin bends. I hope you have a wonderful time too.
