Road Trip out of Paris without breaking the bank

I have been living in Paris for the summer and am trying to decide on a place or places to go in France for my last week here (which happens to include my birthday). I have been to Normandy and the Loire Valley so far. A few of us (including one Parisian) are looking to take a road trip somewhere, ideally in the countryside, with great food, wine, scenery, etc. The problem is we are all musicians and can't afford to stay in nicer places or eat at higher priced Michelin type restaurants. Any suggestions for a part of France (or a couple spots) where we could have a great experience and not spend a ridiculous amount of money (even though given the conversion rate, it's hard to feel good about buying a bottle of water!) ? I thought of the Jura since you can camp and the wine and food are supposed to be great. Have also thought about going to Provence and/or the French Alps (perhaps Annecy) and Gascony. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
