Spain driving loop, longer stay.

Jump to last reply

Hello our family is going to spend 6-8 weeks in Spain starting mid-October. We are going to be based in Jimena de la Frontera. We ended up choosing Jimena because of the selection of accommodation available and access to the National Park Los Alcornocales. Jimena is not as central as other towns people had suggested so I am looking for advice on logistics of visiting other places.

We will have a leased car and will be in Barcelona at the beginning of October for 5 nights before heading to Jimena. What would be a good route to get to Jimena from Barcelona. Suggested stops? LIke many of you, we're not interested in overbuilt beach resorts.

In December we have to make our way back up to France with the car and then on to Torino and points east. Just to complicate matters, we have our bikes on a bike rack and are travelling with a dog and two teens! is there a suggested different route we could drive on the return leg?

We would like to see Seville, Cordoba and Granada at some point. I think Seville will be an easy weekend getaway from Jimena (probably by train) but I have to figure out how to get to the others and when. And I'm sure we will pop down to Malaga and over to Cadiz while there. I have also heard great things about Valencia and am open to any other suggested places.


Should we do Granada on our loop back in December? How would you plan your route?

I'd love to catch some great flamenco or fiestas while we are there as well as good hiking,
mountain biking etc.

Lots to plan but with the longer stay we have some flexibility. I have been looking through the boards and particularly at Kimhe's informative posts. So helpful!

Thank-you!
