Pyrinees Mountain drives advice for a retired couple.

Jump to last reply

We are a couple age 67 and 62 with limited driving mountain roads experience .
Our plan is to drive the following route starting May 6 up May 20 2012.
Barcelona –Turla (Ordesa)-Loudres(grotte de betharrams) – Cauteres (pont déspanie)-Gabarne (Circ de gabarne)-La Mongie (pic de la midi)- Aspin pas – Espot(Aiquestor) - Figueras.
Questions:
1: Is this a safe route for retired people with limited mountain experience?
2: What car type we should hire?
3:Tips for safe driving in the Pyrenees.
4:Any relevant point we should consider.
Thank for your time
