Whee.. I don't know where to start. We have been all over France and try to go to small wonderful villages.If you are going to be in Dijon, you must see some of Burgundy before you head west. We drive down from Paris and right off the A6 there are so many great places to visit that are only about an hour from Dijon... here we go... Montreal, Flavigny, Semur en Auxois, Chablis, Chateauneuf en Auxois ( this is my favorite village in the whole of France) There are many Chateauneuf's in France , but this one has en Auxois after it. This village overlooks the Burgundy canal which is lovely and has picnic tables for a lovely picnic or wine and cheese stop.We stay in little Montreal . If you want a spectacular place to stay there send me a PM. Another place on the way west is St. Julien de Civry which is in the Charolais- Brionnais ( these are cows) region of western Burgundy. There is a wonderful chateau there which is being renovated by 4 people. It is incredible. Again , send me a PM for these accommodations if you are interested.
