I'm planning a trip to the South of France over a period of about 6-7 days.
Im coming in to Calais and am hoping to get west to see Mont de Michel and then head down south to the coast, stay there a couple of days, then head back up via Paris back to Calais back to london

Are there any good suggestions on places to visit on the way, but particularly in the south of france? Any one who says this is a bad idea? :P oh yeah, particularly interested in quiet beaches to just sit around for a day or so when i get to the south

thanks guys

If you pass Carcassonne, you should visit its castle - you'll see it from the autoroute.
Beaches around Serignan are good, not too busy, but if you've time, head east to St Tropez and Port Grimaud for the buzz.

We stayed in Nice, which gave us the oppurtunity to see Cannes and Monte Carlo. The Sea is soooooo beautiful there!
