I think it looks good.

Where are you picking up the car in Marseilles? I think the airport is a bit out of town, so you might want to get a hotel that is close to your car pick up. And make sure you know the location of where you are returning the car. I would think dropping off the car at a Paris airport would be preferable to having to drive in the city, unless you are an experience Parisian driver.

Looks good indeed! Where in Burgundy do you have in mind?
Regarding Marseille car pickup location, airport can be cheaper thanks to the presence of less reputable renters like Goldcar and Firefly, but the train station is convenient, as it is both fairly central and right next to the highway to the north.
