We will be driving from the Cannes area to the Channel Tunnel in Calais at the end of June. To break the journey, we want to stay somewhere in central, or just north of central, France for two midweek nights. We thought of Dijon, but I also thought of Bourges, Chateauroux, Beaune, Auxerre, Besancon, and Troyes. It is our honeymoon and so I would like somewhere with a nice old town, bars, restaurants, parks etc. with nice Hotels.
I know all of the above towns probably have all of the above requests, however, is there one town/large village which truly stands out from the rest.
We have been to Paris and would like to try somewhere else.....we are staying in Reims on our way to the Med...
Thanks for any suggestions
