Best route & sites to see while driving from Dijon to Paris

We are planning to drive from Dijon to Paris and would like to explore the Loire Valley and make some stops along the way. We plan to depart for Dijon Tuesday Morning, Oct 2 and arrive in Paris Thursday night, Oct 5. So we have three days/two nights to work with and would like to make the most of the drive. Any tips on what sites shouldn't be missed, best driving route, or best places to stay along the way?

Any advice is much appreciated!

It´s a four hour drive from Dijon to Tours, all autoroute and not a great deal to visit in between, given the time that you have. Making this trip I might stop in Auxcerre to eat lunch. You would have a day and one half to see the Loire Valley. Here are several hotel recommendations to the east and south of Tours:

http://www.aubergedelaunay.com/

http://www.bonlaboureur.com/

If you have not stayed in a chambre d´hóte, you should try:

There are also several excellent hotels in Tours if you prefer to stay in a larger town:

For this amount of time, I might recommend you visit the following châteaux, all near the above hotels:

Chambord

Chenonceau

Giverny

Cháteau Blois if you have time
