A goodish days drive from Calais takes you to Macon/Dijon type of area in France, so maybe ask in those forums.

Otherwise thare are a few nice villages along Lake Geneva, just outside Geneva itself (eg Nyon, Morges); A bit depends on what time of year you are travelling as some villages are good to visit with snow on the ground etc others not so much.

Assuming you will be driving via Reims, when you get to Metz take the highway A31 towards Nancy . You cpuld make a stop in Pont-à-Mousson on the Moselle river ville-pont-a-mousson.fr/fichiers/tourisme/to… or continue on the A33 towards Lunéville http://www.ot-lunevillois.com/fr/accueil.html and stay in Baccarat the small town famous for its crystal http://www.ot-baccarat.fr/

Then continue your drive on the route nationale N59 via Saint-Dié and over the Vosges mountain range towards Séléstat in the Alsace.

We usually stop near Epernay in a small town called Etoges. There is a lovely hotel there, the Château d'Etoges, which we have stayed at over the years. It is beautiful, with a maot!

If that is too expensive, look at hotels in Montmort-Lucy which is nearby. there is a nice place there, le Cheval Blanc, with an excellent restaurant.

Eperny is a good place to be near as you can visit the champagne caves - Moët does a good tour - and also some of the smaller producers!!

For a second night - though it isn't strictly speaking necessary as the drive from Epernay to the Gstaad area is no more than 6 hours - look at the Besançon area. Lovely coutnryside and Besançon itself has a lot of hotels and restaurants and is on the Doubs river - very nice scenery.
