3 mths in France

We will be spending 3 mths in France from mid August and although we will spend a couple of days in Paris, have been there before and only want to concentrate on the little country villages. Will spend 2 weeks at a time, but continue moving. We have leased a car so are very free as to where we go. Have done a fair bit of research on the internet, but wonder if anyone has some experiences off the beaten track, places, things or villages not to be missed etc.
Any input appreciated.

3 months is a long time
Are you staying in hotels?

We'll be there early July.
We're going through the French alpine region and will also spend a bit of time in Nice & Monaco.

We'd love to see more of France but our time is limited.
We've only got 6 weeks to do France, Italy, Greece & Switzerland.

3 months is a long time

you're kidding? we're planning on at least 6 months, and preferably 12. we'll stay in swap houses or take a long lease on a cottage.

neighbours did france and italy in 4 weeks recently and it was soooooo not long enough. they barely saw the surface of what they wanted to see.
