    Seeing as no one else has replyed , this is what we did but we were only touring round so no where near a direct route , we went down to Dijon , across through chalons , Limoges , where you can park at parc verger, and just across to confolens, we were looking at houses and land for sale and did quite a bit of touring around that area, then we just camr straight up , tours, Le Mans very nice area, some tolls but you can do it without if need be and you have plenty time.

    Route through Paris is around 700kms or 9 hours driving and mostly toll road.
    Route not using toll road is around 740 kms or 13 hours driving so it depends how quickly you want to get to Confolens.

    I normally travel Abbeville - Rouen - Le mans - Tours - Poitiers- Ruffec then over to Confolens - nice aire next to municipal campsite - 2 minutes from town centre. Tolls after boulogne to Abbeville, toll free to Rouen, go down to Le mans via the N road next to the Peage, same as from Le mans to Poitiers no need to pay as the N roads run just about next to the Peage.
