I'm hoping someone will be able to give me some good ideas and help em out a bit.
Basically, my mum has come to stay with me in Aix en Provence for the weekend. I've not been here long, only a few weeks, so I dont know the area completely well either yet...but well enough, and I have a car
So I was wondering whether anyone could give me some ideas of what to do tomorrow. I don't mind driving an hour or so to different villages/areas/landscapes etc, but not much more as we will want to come back for dinner in Aix in the evening.
So I've done a bit of research, and didnt want to really spend the whole day in aix doing museums etc as we have Sunday to do that, I dont think she'll want to do any hiking or crazy amounts of walking...but it would be lovely to know of a great spot for a picnic or a chilled little walk around to see some interesting sights etc.
So if anyone has any ideas, it would be great to hear them.
Also, I dont really think Marseille is an option just incase anyone is going to mention that, and Ive already been up Mt St. Victoire

1Yes, actually there is a place not too far from Aix-en-Provence. And since you have a car, you can drive to a place called Les Bonfillons and when you get there just a little bit south of it there is a huge lake. Outskirts of that lake has really cool place to picnic and walk around. And not to mention great view. Your mother probably would enjoy that a lot. Try Les Bonfillions. You would like it and it's quiet as well. It's not too far from you at all. Good Luck!
