if you're taking two days to come down then why use the autoroute?  has to be one of the most boring drives ever IMO.

last time i came down i came down further west via le mans, tours (took in a couple of the loire valley chateaux) then stayed the night in Sarlat - (see here: http://www.clarkson.edu/~griffitk/sarlat.html  (not my pics))

next day went east to Avignon, over Mt Ventoux (one of the most famous Tour de France climbs) then west to Moustiers St Marie through the Provencal Lavender fields.  Hardly touched an autoroute but the route nationales are so good you don't miss them and big bonus is they are free.

Hotel le Panorama, 74 Route de Pommard, Beaune, Tel 03 08 26 22 17. Good stop over hotel, you can walk into the center of Beaune easily, the hotel is on the edge of town off the main autoroute, surrounded by vinyards, has its own restaurant and pool to cool off in after a long drive, good value, regards Lynnette

I like Savigny-les-Beaune, personally - good food, good wine and a beautiful château with a bizarre, eclectic museum focusing on old motorbikes, military jets and Abarth racing cars...
