Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Dijon to Lyon or Lyon to Grenoble

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Looking for a nice town for an overnight stop en-route to Serre Che.

Between Dijon (not looking to stay there, nice though it is) and Lyon or between Lyon and Grenoble.

Ideally a pleasant town with reasonable hotel options and some typical/charming restaurants for an evening meal.

Beaune, Chalon sur Saone, Macon and Villefranche sur Saone might fit the bill (all between Dijon and Lyon).

Just looking for any recommendations. Thanks.

@Cacciatore, Beaune would be your best option I think . Not a lot between Lyon and Grenoble.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

and it's not all that far; you might as well stay in one of them - Lyon is very nice and I quite like Grenoble, although I know that not everyone does

Beaune is certainly nice

@Arno, I like Grenoble too although my memories of staying there aren't quite so good, as most of it was spent visiting hubby in the hospital.

Beaune to Serre Che is not too bad a journey, we've done it quite often. Can be there in time for lunch if you want to.
Nuits-St-George would be another option.

Beaune is very nice and also easier than some others to find the motorway again Embarassed

Beaune is nice, it is very handy for the motorway and the IBIS hotel near the centre has a pleasant restaurant, parking and is in walking distance of the old town.

I once had a slightly enforced stopover in Macon; didn't strike me as very interesting, but perhaps I just didn't know where to look.

Lyon itself is a great place to stay, a beautiful city.

Much better choices for restaurants in Beaune than the IBIS hotel though.

Lyon is great I had a long weekend there a couple of years ago. Food is superb particularly if offal floats your boat.

So, we elected to stay in Beaune. A good decision. Charming town, loads of character and plenty of eating options. Stayed at the Qualys Hotel de la Paix. Highly recommend the place. Only 200m from the town centre and has secure parking. Friendly, decent sized and comfortable rooms.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Can't beat Lyon itself. Beautiful city and all sorts of restaurant options including Paul Bocuse's second tier (Nord, Sud, Est, Ouest) all with different themes and not bank breaking. Not sure where to stay as we have always stayed with friends but you could find a cheap spot just outside and drive in - plenty of pretty central parking in the evening.

We usually stop over in Beaune. @Cacciatore, too late for you as you've now left... But the mustard factory is a nice visit, if only to try the different mustards.
