7 Days in Spain -- Where to go? Need to make a decision quickly.

Jump to last reply

So we'll have a 7 day precursor to our trip to Paris with our folks next May.

There's availability on our reward ticket to fly to Madrid from London on our arrival--which would give us 7 whole days on the ground before heading back to Paris.

I've been to Europe many, many times--but never Spain and or Portugal...so I don't even know where to begin.

We have precious little time to book our flights (on hold for 24hrs) so I need to make and on-the-fly decision on our first destination.

We're not big city folks to begin with and would prefer a quaint seaside setting full of culture, amazing food and beautiful scenery. If we start in Madrid--what would recommend for our limited amount time we have? My partner really wants to go to Portugal...but there's no flight options for us to head there immediately.
