France with ASD teen DD

I'm looking for recommendations of where to take my DD after her exams this year. She has ASD and anxiety and it will be just me and her. She has said she fancies France.

I would prefer to fly from Edinburgh or Glasgow and also to not need a car when there. So I'm thinking somewhere that is one bus or train trip from the airport, that is interesting and pretty without being too busy or overwhelming would work well. Where we can wander about and enjoy the atmosphere, with sights to see, but not necessarily "must do" things that would add pressure if she doesn't feel up to it.

We are not bothered about swimming or sunbathing, but do enjoy being by the sea. She is quite arty, likes history and "old" places.

We would probably like to be self catering.

Any suggestions or recommendations of places that you have stayed?

Montpellier on the south coast of France is a lovely town. Not sure how connected it is by train to other places though.. I also have ASD teen so watching with interest.

I'd recommend Nîmes (about 60 km from Montpellier, so not by the sea but really lovely) or Beziers/Narbonne in the Languedoc.

That sounds good. We can get a flight to Béziers. So that could mean one stage less in the trip. Thank you.
