We're deciding between 3 itineraries and would love some advice.

We have 9 nights to spend in Europe at the end of July into beginning of August (Yes I know we are late but we have checked into all and still have time:) ) and are considering the following 3 options:
1)
Fly into Bilbao Spain
3-4 nights in/around Cantabria.
3-4 nights in/around San Sebastian ( roughly 3 hr drive from Cantabria to San Sebastian)
2 nights in Madrid (roughly 4 hr drive from Cantabria to Madrid...or take train)
Home

2)
Fly into Bilbao Spain
4-5 nights in/around San Sebastian
4-5 nights in Bordeaux France countryside (roughly 3 hr drive from San Sebastian to Bordeaux)
1-2 nights in Paris (roughly 3.5 hour train or 1 hr flight from Bordeaux to Paris)
Home

3)
Fly into Bilbao Spain
4-5 nights in/around San Sebastian OR Cantabria
4-5 nights in/around Lisbon Portugal (roughly 40 min flight from Bilbao airport)
If we did this option we would probably break it up with a countryside stay outside of Lisbon
Home

We are into beautiful sights, food, wine & culture. We like old and authentic vs new and modern. I know this doesn't narrow down much in pretty much all of Europe but hoping it helps. We don't want overly touristy (I do realize this prime vacation time for all of Europe) or overly quiet.
Would love to hear opinions from my valued Fodor's travelers!
Thanks so much!
