6 weeks Spain Itinerary

Jump to last reply

For those of you that quickly assume we want all the work done for us: let me start out by saying that I do my research! I have 4 Travel books on Spain, multiple "saved" reports and bookmarked sights. And yes, I still would like some of your expert opinions.
We are just beginning to plan an extended trip to Spain in about a year, pending my DH's retiring. My dream of six months in Europe (at our ages, 63 and 68, I was thinking of doing several countries at one time!) was shot down finding out that 90 days out of 180 is all that is allowed... Anyway, the DH does not think he is ready (?!) for that long away from home.
Our last time in Spain was 30 years ago. So essentially, never!
We would like to base ourselves about a week or so in any given area to be able to experience it best. Ideally traveling mostly by train but we have no problem renting a car for visiting areas that would best be seen with the use of one. (I drove 6 weeks in Italy recently).
We would like to see ALL the regions of this large and diverse country. My main question: how to best break up our time. I would like to try renting apartments rather than hotels. B n B's are our most usual accommodations but want to spend less if possible.
Thank you.
