France/Spain in june: Catalonia help, girona figures costa brava barcelona

Jump to last reply

Hi, we would like to visit catalonia as part of a greater spain/france driving trip this june and are debating how to divide up our time and where to base. For Context, our general itinerary so far is as follows
Madrid 3 nights; Seville 4 nights; Granada 1 night; 2 nights undecided; leon 2 nights; San Sebastian 4 nights; THEN not sure. currently thinking drive into France/Dordogne for 5 or 7 nights then down to Catalonia for 6 or 8 nights.

We are having major troubles figuring out if we should donate the questionable 2 extra nights to france OR to catalonia (or cut out france all together or just do pays basque part of france). For catalonia, we were thinking of basing ourselves 2 nights Girona OR figures and 2 nights cadaques (for Costa Brava) then 4 nights Barcelona ending there on the 24th for the San Juan festival. Do you think this is a good plan for exploring northern catalonia and its worth devoting 8 nights here or can we get a good flavour for northern catalonia with 2 nights (girona or costa brava). Our interest in catalonia is the beautiful med coast of the costa brava for some beach and relax time, Dali stuff and cute towns and maybe a monastery (food and wine also). our interest in france is food, wine, prehistoric sights, gardens, Armagnac. any help or suggestions for bases or how to divide up our nights welcome.
