Spain for a Small Family

Jump to last reply

I am looking for suggestions for family travel to Spain for my husband, 7-yr old daughter and me. Some specifics:
-We would most likely be travelling the 3rd week of March '17. If we can't get this to work, OR if the weather would be much better, would could possibly push this back to the 3rd week of June '17. Any input on this would be helpful. Our stay would be from 8-10 days.
-We would like to see Madrid or/and Barcelona, but would also like to see 2-3 other sites, either off the beaten path or not-to-miss sites. I think the south looks really interesting, my husband thinks the north and northwest coast looks beautiful. I'd even be willing to skip Madrid in lieu of some other sites (Granada? San Sebastian? Galicia?)
-We'd like to see some cultural places, but also have a chance to do some more adventurous outdoor activities. Our daughter (and I) are apt to become bored if there are too many museums, etc. I'm thinking perhaps some small hikes, horse back riding?, beach walking, biking, etc.
-We are very open to staying in different types of accommodations, although it would be nice to have a pool at one of them:)
-I'm intrigued by staying in the old monasteries.
-We aren't big spenders....but are hoping to offset the vacation with some built-up miles in order to be able to stay at nicer places and/or do things we want. Thus we can rent a car using the miles and stay at some hotels in Madrid and Barcelona using miles. Our lflights will be on miles as well.
Thank you,
Molly
