From Netherlands to Northern Spain in 10 days

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to NW Spain/Northern Portugal in late August/early September. We have friends near Amsterdam that we'd like to visit on the front end so we want to fly into Amsterdam for the first stop in our trip...then rent a car and drive all the way to Santiago de Compostela, in NW Spain.

Have never driven through Western France so I need help figuring out whether my itinerary below is realistic/doable:

Nights 1 + 2 -Netherslands: Amsterdam
Night 3 - France: Overnight near Mt St Michel/Brittany
Night 4 - France: Overnight in Bordeaux
Night 5 Spain: Overnight in Asturias (Oviedo), Spain
Nights 6-10: Santiago de Compostela (Galicia) Spain
Night 11: Madrid, to catch flight back to the States.

Is the 2 night journey through France too ambitious an undertaking? We want to maximize our time in Spain, so I'm trying to cut the amount of time spent driving to Santiago de Compostela from Amsterdam...but still want to be able to enjoy the sights in France along the way, and I want to be sure that this itinerary is not too rushed to enjoy the sights along the way?
