Driving from Bordeaux south into Spain- tips please!!

Jump to last reply

Hi

My Dad and I are flying to Bordeaux early July and planning on meandering down through SW France arriving in San Sebastien and then exploring the Spanish Basque region. We have 2 weeks. I would ideally like to reach Madrid before flying back to London.
Questions:
a) is all of this feasible or will it be a lot to cover?
b) I have not had any luck securing a campervan which was our initial thought to keep costs down- any suggestions on companies I could try?
c) if we choose to go with the car option I wonder if anyone can recommend low cost accommodation...I have heard "auberges" mentioned- ?
d) maybe we could rent a van once in Spain?

Haven't decided if we will stick to the coast and travel E5/E70 route or go bit more inland on E7.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. !!!!!!
