Small Towns Spain(Catalonia,LaRioja,Navarra,Basque)w/ trip to Bordeaux

Jump to last reply

We will be in Spain for 2 weeks in May. Flying into and out of Barcelona. We like to partake in cooking classes, visit vineyards, wineries, markets and small villages and towns where there are cafes and lots of cute little shops. We will have a car. Recommendations on some bed and breakfasts in Spain are appreciated.

Can you please recommend similar towns and villages that we visited in France and Italy:
ITALY: Florence is large, but we loved it. Chianti region and surrounding areas, Bologna and surrounding area, Sorrento, Positono, Amalfi.
FRANCE: We loved Paris. In Provence, Velleron, Isle la Sorgue, St. Remy, Les Baux and other stops along the way. Lacoste, Apt, Bonnieux, Apt, Roussillon, Pernes les Fontaines, Sault, Vaison la Romaine, Eze near Nice.

We also plan to drive into Bordeaux and St. Emillion.

We will start our trip out in Barcelona and end in Barcelona. We don't mind taking a train/drive directly to our first destination and stay in Barcelona last before our departure back to the states. We have done something similar in the past, where we flew into Rome and took a train directly to Florence, beginning our trip there and ending in Rome.

I understand that we may not have time to visit all regions, nor do we intend to. I am simply looking for recommendations in those regions and am going to plan from there. We don't mind making brief stops along the way while driving through regions/towns villages. Our trips to France and Italy were also for 2 weeks and we found we had enough time to visit multiple regions staying few nights at each as a base for full day explorations via car/foot/bike/vespa.
