Driving from Cassis, France to Palamos, Spain: where to stop?

Hi, We will be driving from Cassis, France to Palamos, Spain on a weekday in late August. We will have two kids (2 and 6) with us. We are looking to make this a leisurely drive with no more than 2 hours consecutively. Any suggestions for where to stop to stretch legs, eat snack/lunch etc?

Like tomboy said on other thread rest areas may be a convenient place to rest - getting off autoroute and going into towns can take a long time and I believe you're looking at a fairly long ride. Kids that age will find room to run around and you can stop every few hours. May not sound dreamy but not bad either - many have kids' play areas:<br /><br />https://www.google.com/search?q=aire+de+repos+france+images&amp;tbm=isch& amp;tbo=u&amp;source=univ&amp;sa=X&amp;ved=0ahUKEw jgj73ovZXcAhWkyoMKHb_1BgkQsAQIKw&amp;biw=549&amp;b ih=588&amp;dpr=1.5<br /><br />Just look for signs "Aire de xxxxxxx" along the route.

As I mentioned on other thread Aigues-Mortes, a historic port city from which some King Louis launched some Crusades, is on that general route.
