Fall Driving France Itinerary Planning - Need Experts Advise Please!

Fall Driving Tour of France Itinerary Planning - Need Experts Advise Please!

We’re planning a trip to France this September. We've traveled extensively through-out Europe but have only been to Paris and the Southern France, including the Cote D'Azur and Provence (Loved it!).

We like to start rural and end in Paris. We can spend 2 weeks plus a few extra days and would like to drive, but have no problems using rail, if needed, to get back to Paris.

I usually like to include a few different regions to make the trip more diverse. For example last year we did Northern Italy for 16 nights. We spent 4 nights in Bologna - 3 nights in the Dolomites - 4 nights in the Piemonte Region - 4 nights Bellagio-Lake Como. It was incredible because it felt like 4 different vacations. Many thanks to fellow Fodorites for helping me plan. (Trip report at http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/northern-italy-16-day-trip-report.cfm if interested). Our travels in Spain included 4 different two week trips and we still have more places to go. We like to slow travel. I understand that France probably has plenty of two week trips.

I am intrigued by the Languedoc/Roussillon and Dordogne region of France because we love being near the sea, plus love good food, driving winding roads, castles, caves and little towns. We will end our trip in Paris and will spend a few nights there.

I know I am late in planning so your expert advise would be appreciated since I really don't know much about traveling in France and it has so many wonderful regions. Thank you in advance for your advise.
