We've done France (and Northern Spain) both exceptional holidays.
In France, we had the first and last night booked to accomodate our ferry bookings (Roscoff). Then armed with the Yellow Michelin Local Maps we just picked a route each morning that looked good. We then looked for accomodation around lunchtime and spent the afternoon exploring the local area (or sat drinking wine all afternoon!)
(Google - Hotels des Mimosas - Pont Aven as an example of a wine drinking venue!
If the place was really nice, we extended our stay; or just moved on.
