need help with andalucia - spain and morocco in 11 days [august 2015]

Jump to last reply

hello all! i am in the beginning stages of planning my first trip to spain and morocco in august 2015. my husband and i will be flying out of JFK into barcelona and have 11 full days. normally i focus on only one country at a time, but we plan on starting a family next year and i've always dreamed of going to morocco so i wanted to combine it with this trip and get it out of my system. :) i am set with that portion of the trip, but am not too sure about andalucia.

here is a rough outline of our itinerary:
day 0 - jfk to barcelona
day 1 - barcelona [10 am arrival]
day 2 - barcelona
day 3 - barcelona
day 4 - andalucia - ??? seville province
day 5 - andalucia - ??? granada or seville province
day 6 - andalucia - ??? granada / alhambra
day 7 - andalucia - ??? malaga province / ronda
day 8 - andalucia, seville city center [5:30 pm flight booked from seville to marrakesh]
day 9 - marrakesh
day 10 - marrakesh
day 11 - marrakesh [11:30 pm booked from marrakesh to bcn, arrives at 3AM]
day 12 - 11:15 am flight from bcn to jfk

in my preliminary research of the andalucia region, i am interested in visiting seville, granada, and ronda and plan on renting a car. my husband and i loved val d'orcia in tuscany and stayed in a working farmhouse/agriturismo so we are looking for a similar country/rural experience in andalucia. i really like this place called hacienda san rafael, which is 40 minutes from seville ( so here are my questions:

1. should we make this our base for the 4 nights or should we spend 2 nights there and 2 nights closer to granada? if the latter, this should probably be the last two nights / three days as opposed to the first two since our flight to marrakesh is out of seville.
2. should we be considering staying in seville and granada instead of the areas surrounding it?
3. has anyone had any experience renting a car in granada and returning in seville or vice versa? based on this feedback, i will be able to determine which city to fly into from barcelona.

thanks in advance for any feedback and recommendations!
