If by 'best' you mean fastest/most direct, check the route detailed below. It's around 1100+km (700+ miles), is pretty straightforward with service stations/rest stops, has tolls but avoids driving near or through Paris. Absolute minimum driving time with no stops, traffic congestion, roadworks or navigation issues is 10+ hours.
Driving for 10+ hours is simply not safe so you should plan to break your journey with an overnight stop or, at the very least, a stop of several hours so you can get some proper mental rest (preferably sleep). The geographical (not necessarily time) mid-point of the journey is in the Dijon area.
1. From Calais (France) simply take the A26 southwards, passing through or near NordausquesThérouanneBethuneArrasHargicourtSaint-Quentin and Laon.
2. Follow the A26 around the north-western edge of Reims then continue onto the A4 southwards.
3. Stay on the A4 until just past Les Grandes-Loges then go right to pick up the A26 south again.
4. Stay on the A26 south, passing through or near Mailly-le-Camp and Charmont-sous-Barbuise. South of Daudes go left onto the A5.
5. Follow the A5 east then south, passing through or near BeureyVille-sous-la-Ferté and Marac. Shortly after Marac the A5 joins the A31...make sure you continue south on the A31
6. Follow the A31 south, passing through or near Courcelles-en-MontagneSelongeyChevigny-Saint-Sauveur and Nuits-Saint-Georges
7. The A31 meets the A6 to the north-east of Beaune. Make sure you follow the A6 southwards.
8. Follow the A6 south, passing through or near Chalon-sur-SaoneMacon (Bourgogne) and Villefranche-sur-Saone until you come to the north-east of Lyon where you should turn right onto the A7 south.
9. Follow the A7 south through Lyon and its suburbs then continue southwards, passing through or near Saint-Romain-en-GalVienneRoussillonTain-l'HermitageValenceMontboucher-sur-JabronSaint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and the outskirts of Orange (France) until it meets the A8 near Coudoux. Go left onto the A8.
10. Stay on the A8 to and around the southern outskirts of Aix-en-Provence then watch for a right-hand turn onto the A52.
11. Stay on the A52 south until just south of Aubagne, where the A52 meets the A50.
12. Continue south then east on the A50 all the way to Toulon
