Catalonia - Am I trying to do too much?

Jump to last reply

After hours of research and booking hotel reservations, I'm now really worried that we're trying to do too much in 7 days. Please advise!

Day 1: Drive from Barcelona to Calella de Palafrugell, taking our time and making stops along the way. (Tossa de Mar, Sant Feliu de Guixo)
Day 2: Llafranc, Begur, Pals, and Peretallada, arriving in Girona for lodging.
Day 3: Girona
Day 4: Drive to Roses, where we have lodging booked, and then on to Cadaques to spend the day before returning to Roses for the night
Day 5: Drive from Roses to Besalu and ending the day in Beget where we stay overnight. (possibly stopping in Camprodon on the way?)
Day 6: Explore Beget and drive to Rupit where we spend the night.
Day 7: Explore Rupit and then drive to Barcelona for dinner.

This has been difficult to plan because DH wants to go to the ocean, and I have my heart set on the charming villages inland. We are mainly into just walking around and exploring on foot.. Looking forward to some good food, but nothing fancy. I don't envision us spending time at the beach, but just enjoying the scenery. DH will be doing all the driving, and I worry that it will be exhausting for him, especially because I keep reading about the winding road to Cadaques, and I believe there's another one to get to Beget.. And the route from Tossa de Mar to Sant Feliu de Guixo is windy too, right? Oh, this is so hard! There are so many places that sound wonderful. But will I OD on charming villages? And I should probably mention that DH is going along with me on this, but is NOT looking forward to it. He'd really rather stay home and ride his bicycle 40 miles a day.
Help me sanity check this, and tell me what to cut out, please! Thanks so much.
