Northeastern Spain

Jump to last reply

Well, we just decided that we're headed for Spain again in late May. I have spent a lot of time in Spain, mostly in Sevilla and greater Southern Spain. I have been to Northern Spain, but I covered almost a city a day working my way across the top of the country and now am thinking I'd like to plan more focused time in a smaller area. Our plan is to pick a couple smallish town to stay in for a week at a time, with a plan to make day trips to the bigger cities. We were targeting one week for Catalonia, and one town that seems appealing is Begur. We would like to be close to the ocean but don't have to be right on it. When I think of smallish towns, what I mean is that we want to be able to stay in an older section of town, maybe in an apartment, and have 3 or 4 bars and restaurants within reasonable walking distance of the hotel. We did not originally plan on having a car at all, but it seems like people on this board feel that you need to have a car in Catalonia if you plan on traveling to the small towns. So, how do people feel about Begur as a home base for the first week? Basque country is what we're targeting for the second week. Again, we'd like to consider a smallish town as a home base and travel out by bus and/or train to nearby small and large towns. Any ideas for Basque country? Thanks for your help, I've already been pouring over the other postings and have pages of notes and ideas.
