Car Service from Lisbon to Seville?

Jump to last reply

Planning a 2 week trip to Spain and Portugal in late Sept. - early Oct. which tentatively looks something like this:

Fly Phila. to Lisbon
4 nights in Lisbon (mode of transport????)
3 nights in Seville (train to Madrid)
2 nights in Madrid (train to Barcelona)
3 nights Barcelona
Fly Barcelona to Phila.

The part that is giving me trouble is how to get from Lisbon to Seville. For two European cities that are relatively close together, it's hard to believe there is no direct train service. I know that we could do a combo of buses and trains, or just trains to do this leg, but from what I've read, it sounds like a long, exhausting, wasted day during which several things could go wrong. I always prefer not to take buses and I'd rather not do connecting slow trains with luggage in tow. Rental car sounds out of the question because of the international return fees. So, my thinking is that a private car service might be the answer. I know it will be expensive, but if it's leisurely and we can do an Algarve driving tour or stop in Gibraltar for a few hours on the way, I think it would be worth the expense. We did this from Frankfurt to Prague last year stopping in Rothenburg on the way, and it was totally worth it.

Any thoughts on this? Any recommendations for a car service?

Thanks so much!
