Resolved Question: Really need some advice
Ok, so I booked a return flight to Bordeaux on the 28th September and was due to come back to the UK on 5th October, but now I can extend my stay until about the 16th October as an appointment I had in England has now been cancelled.
I intend to visit Bordeaux, Bergerac, (maybe Carcassonne), Perpignan, Montpellier, Avignon and finally Marseille.
I found this website called wheretosleep where you can book reasonably priced rooms in villas and homes throughout France (and the world I guess) but some of these accommodations are about 20km from the place I actually want to see (e.g Bergerac).
When I last travelled to France two weeks ago (Paris) it seemed to me that there is no coach service there - like National Express? Only trains which are quite expensive in France. I cannot hire a car as I paid off all my credit cards last November and effectively got rid of them. I only have a debit card which I presume you cannot use to hire cars.
So my choices are: trains (expensive), take my own car (uploading French maps to my satellite navigation system but I am worried about driving in France - on the right and all that - Never done so before).
If you were me, what would you do? Drive to France with your own car? Fly there and take public transport or see if there is a car hire service that takes debit cards? Incidentally, is there a coach service in France?

Resolved Question: Which of these places
I only have two days in which I can drive from Lyon to Frejus, France and then back before driving back to Germany.
I am spending a night in Lyon and will have a few hours there that afternoon.
The next morning, I will drive toward Frejus where I spend another night.
I am trying to figure out if I should see the Pont du Garde aqueduct, Arles, Nimes, Aix en Provence, or take a ferry to the islands of the Hyeres. I know I have to choose one or two sites to see.
Alternately, I will be driving back to Lyon and need to figure out what route to take.
I am not sure what to choose to see for an hour or two at a time, en route.
I realize I have to pick like one or two things en route to Frejus and then one or two things on the way back, en route to Lyon.
I can drive all day but do not like driving at night that much.
I will also have my dog with me, so I probably will just see the outside of things.
I was possibly considering driving through Nice and to Monaco and then heading north to Lyon the second day.
Also, is it worth just driving along the coast, if that is all I do on the second day??
And if so, are there places to pull off to see the view of the water at all??
I have only been to Paris so far, and this is my first time in southern France.
I am from the US and have only driven in Germany so far.
