Spain itinerary for a 5 week trip?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Spain for either next Sept or the following spring. We have about 5 weeks and are trying to work out a route. We prefer basing ourselves in an apartment/house and doing day trips as much as possible, with rental car or trains. After a lot of research, I have come up with a possible plan and would like some input as to whether this sounds like a good routing, or is there a possible better way to see all that we want to see?
Fly into Barcelona....5 nights (day trip to Montserrat)
Train to San Sebastian.....5 nights (day trip to St Jean de Luz)
Train to Madrid.........5 nights (day trip to Segovia, Avila, El Escorial..1 day car)
Train to Toledo.....2 nights
Rental car to Granada.....3 nights
Rental car to either Ronda or Arcos.....6-7 nights (day tripping to other villages)
Rental car to Seville .........6 nights (drop rental car BEFORE entering Seville!)
Train to Cordoba.........2 nights
Train to Madrid........1 night Fly home from Madrid

We are trying to avoid backtracking and we do like the freedom of driving when feasible. I'm not sure that the time allotted in each place is good...may need to subtract or add a day here or there. Any suggestions? Thanks for all input.
