Where to stop overnight between Paris and Biarritz

Hi fellow Francophiles!

I'm looking for some advice. I will be travelling with my spouse and two children between Paris and Biarritz this summer and returning to paris two weeks later.

I want to break my journey with an overnight stay on each leg. Ideally i want to rreturn via a slightly different route to enable us to stay somewhere different!

Anyone have any ideas for a nice to stay in between these two places? What about any attractions that you think should not be missed?

At roughly 1/2 way you are close to Poitiers, Le Mans & Tours are also good stop off points. Check out www.viamichelin.com for routes, it also gives you distances, costs & journey times.

We did the Calais to Biarritz route the year before last & stayed in Saumur in the Loire valley, a beautiful place with a chateau perched on a hill overlooking the town, but that might be too near Paris for you. We liked it so much we changed our return itinerary to go back for a couple of nights & explore properly.
