Arles - Saint Tropez 9 day Itinerary 2 base camp suggestions

Married 30 year old couple flying in and out of Marseille Sept. 3-11. We want to do two base camps (hotels) one on the coast and one more inland. I've broken down spots we are interested in in the two areas, although we know we will not be able to see and do everything we would love recommendations on what towns would be best base camps and if you would prioritize this list in any way and if you'd split time evenly or more time on coast vs inland.

We are active and I am a photographer so most important things to us are seeing beautiful views, hiking, we want to do a boat off coast one day, and/or kayak one day, and see cute towns, markets, drink wine, maybe a spa day and eat great food. We are not interested in museums or historical monuments on this trip.


Coast - Cassis, Hyeres, Bormes-les-mimosas, Grimaud, Ramatuelle, Saint-Tropez

Inland - Aix-en-Provence, Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Apt, Gordes, Menerbes, L'Isle Sur la Sorgue, Lex Baux de Provence
