Driving south from Lille in May

Jump to last reply

My husband and I in our mid 60's will be taking the Eurostar to Lille and picking up a rental car to drive onwards. On previous driving trips we have taken a west route from Paris to Honfleur, Normandy, the Loire and then down and across to Monte Carlo. On another trip we drove from Avignon down towards the Spanish border and then up to Bordeaux, via Carcassonne.
We had hopes for May 2016 to drive to Annecy and then maybe to Strasbourg, however we are concerned that it may still be cold with perhaps snow along the border.
We have been to Lyon on a previous trip, and with the car and parking problems, would prefer a route/accommodation which takes in small towns/villages.
We are interested in wineries, museums, and provincial French food.
