Paris to Andalucia To train or to car?

Jump to last reply

My mother and I will be flying into Paris in late August and have 11 days to make it down to Andalucia for a wedding. We are trying to decide if we should rent a car or just take train trips between the cities (perhaps with overnights on the train).

Our itinerary will likely be something like the following, with a day or two at various stops as we determine which ones we are most attracted to:

1.) Paris - Amboise
2.) Amboise - Sarlat
3.) Sarlat - San Sebastian
4.) San Sebastian - Madrid
5.) Madrid - Sevilla
6.) Sevilla - Alajar

So the question is, we like the idea of getting to see more of the countryside (esp. Dordogne region) with a car and having the flexibility, but is driving that far a crazy idea? Will the tolls and petrol be more expensive than trains? Will having a car just be too stressful (esp in Madrid, but we won't have the car in Paris).

Any insight would be very appreciated! (on the destinations, as well!)
