Stop over near Lyon?

We're driving from Italy (Florence) via Torino towards Bordeaux and will need to find an easy stop over place near Lyon. (On our return trip, we'd like to stay in Chambery, but for the outbound trip, we need to get an hour or so further along.) We don't want to trek into Lyon, so are there any good places to stop without getting too far off the motorway? We'd love to find a nice hotel or B&B and a good restaurant, rather than settling for a motorway hotel if possible. Any suggestions welcome, thank you!

You might want to consider Oingt, which is just off the Autoroute. It's a beautiful village (one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France), and there are several restaurants, including a great one that we just had lunch at 2 weeks ago -- La Table du Donjon. While I'm not sure about accommodations in the village (we were staying in Bois d'Oingt), there seem to be several within a mile or 2 of it.

Thank you! We'll give that a try. Seems to be about 20 minutes off the motorway. Thank you!
