This was one of those "be flexible" vacations: our original plan was to do a rock-climbing course in Provence during the first week, then do two weeks of backpacking in the Maritime Alps. When the course was cancelled the week before we left, we decided to just do three weeks of backpacking. After around two weeks with the packs and tent we decided to use a hut/hotel as a base camp for the last week and do hikes from there.

And for the dayhikes:
