Can anyone please advise on a great family night stop- off south of Dijon. We're travelling from St. Omer, heading towards Bergamo the next day. We'd like a hotel with parking, and restaurants within walking distance. Thanks so much!

If you stay on the A6 (and do the Macon turn off rather than via Dole - we went this way last year):

Novotel at Macon Nord has a pool and whilst nothing much in walking distance, it has secure parking and the food is not bad - nice wine!

www.lasourcedesfees.fr/ this chambre d'hotes is about 10 mins from the motorway. We've stayed a couple of times. Fab breakfast and lovely garden with wine tasting thrown in. There are a couple of restos in the village but we went for the set meal there - local food with a kids option.

The Ibis Styles at Chalons Sur Saone is right off the A6 also - has a pool and family rooms - we had a one with 2 bedrooms sharing a bath. It's not the most scenic spot but is next to a hypermarket with restaurants and a McDonalds.

Don't ever go the Novotel at Dijon Sud - it's awful! Just thought Beaune is another nice option - Ibis Styles is near the centre. Novotel there is fine too - but it;s towards the edge of town.
