10 Free Days in Fall--where to go??? Help!!

Where would you pick to spend 10 days in France in late September/early October if you want charming villages, greenery ,and easy walks?
We are planning 5 nites Paris, 4 nites Lyon and probably 5 nites outside Sarlat. We have spent time around Dijon/Annecy/Chamonix/some of Brittany.
We have 10 days open and are not sure where to go. We will have a car.
We had thought of going to Loire Valley, but Stu Dudley does not recommend the Loire valley area for scenery and charming towns.
Would appreciate any advice and suggestions!!

It is important to remember that the charming small towns/ villages in late September/ October are very very quiet.
I loved Avignon, Orange, Roussilon and around the Provence area.

In the fall, I would first head for the Ardennes and the Vosges for the autumn foliage and then work my way down through Alsace, the Jura and a bit of the Alps. This does not appear to correspond to your ideas, except for maybe Chamonix.

I'd aim for Alsace which pretty close to the Vosges. Or Narbonne.
