There are, quite literally, many hundreds of towns in France that meet these requirements. You could pin a map of France on the wall and throw darts at it. Time to get hold of a guide book and France and start doing some research.

In France, a car can be very useful to explore small towns and the countryside, but in big towns a car is nothing but an expensive nuisance.

You might get some ideas by looking at the 50 places we have stayed: http://nickbooth.id.au/Places/France.htm

Be aware that the weather in February in the South of France will be much more temperate than in the north and that many rural villages will be very quiet in February compared with larger towns and cities.

Look at flying direct to Nice to use as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur by public transport.

7 days is a very very short time... Changing town every 1.5 day is also totally unrealistic. In 7 days at most you can do two towns, connected by fast trains, like Paris and Lyon or Paris and Bordeaux or Paris and Strasbourg for example. For someone who likes food, culture and wine, Côte d'Azur is a bad idea in my opinion. Just because it's famous doesn't mean it's great for everyone.
