Getting from Barcelona to St. Jean de Luz

Jump to last reply

We are trying to decide which option makes most sense; train, plane or car to get ourselves from Barcelona up to the Basque region in June.
1) Train is 5 1/2 hours - maybe this is worthwhile if the scenery is good or at least interesting?
2) Plane is just over one hour and the Vueling airline is cheaper than the train. We're not familiar with Vueling - can anyone comment on using them? (for such a short flight we wouldn't care about leg room but safety matters!) Obviously this gives us more time once we arrive although the check-in, etc. adds to the hassle factor.
3) Driving would mean all day but cheaper for us and we'd be getting a car once we arrived anyway. But really the question is same as #1; is it worth it to give up the day to see the region from the road?

We'd sure appreciate any input from people who know the area or these routes!
