Do you need a car in Provence?

It depends on what part of Provence you'll visit. Around the Nice and beach area there is lots of traffic congestion and you wouldn't want to drive in Nice as it's a large city. You'll do fine with trains and buses there. If you're going to western Provence a car is better, per Kerouac's statement above.
