Default Au Secours!

My husband and I are going to France on business in June (the 24 Hours of Le Mans auto race, for those who don't know us). I have a "significant" birthday coming up in July and we thought we would use our 6 days off between qualifying and the race to do something really fun. Ideally we would park ourselves in one spot at a nice B&B/inn/chateau and take day trips out from there. Favorite things are good food, good wine, vineyards, gardens, horses, untouristy villages with farmer's markets, just walking/driving through pretty countryside, and so forth. We really don't want a huge hotel with swimming pool, golf, and all that stuff. Something smaller and more personal suits us better, although my husband could really use wireless access in case of emergencies at the track while we're on the road.

We were thinking Provence but would like to avoid crowds of tourists. Has anyone stayed at a really fabulous little country inn somewhere that you could recommend? I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and don't know where to start looking. All help gratefully received!
