Spain with a car and kids 18 days

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. Thank you for suggestions on my other posts. We've revisited our plan and have come up with the following:

(NB: By this stage we've already spent 16 days driving from Paris to Provence)

Day 1 Drive 300km from Camargue, France to Coasta Brava (Llafranc / Tamariu / Calella de Calafrugell / Platja de Castell - We're having trouble deciding which town would be best here.)

Day 2-3 Laze at the beaches

Day 4 Drive 115km to Barcelona

Day 5-6 Explore Barcelona - Sagrada Família Church, Park Güell, La Rambla, Plaça Espanya Magic Fountains Montjüic, La Boqueria food market (I've been here several times before, so again we're happy for a brief stop).

Day 7 Drive 350km to Valencia - Just a place to stop the night and stretch our legs. (Open to other suggestions here)

Day 8-9 Granada - Drive 500km to Granada - Visit Alhambra, Garcia Lorca Park,

Day 10 Seville - Drive 350km to Seville - Stopping at Ronda and Olvera (Pueblas Blancas) [Direct to Seville is 250km, so this is a detour)

Day 11-14 Explore Seville - Day trip to Jerez, Flamenco dancing, April Festival

Day 15 Drive 150km to Cordoba - Mezquita

Day 16 Drive 420km to Madrid (stop in Toledo on way).

Day 17-18 Explore Madrid (I've been to Madrid before and hubby isn't that fussed, so we're happy to not spend a huge amount of time here)


Questions:

* Other options for a stopover between Barcelona and Granada?
* Is Jerez worth a day trip from Seville (94km each way)? I think our kids would like to see the horses.
* Is it feasible to drive the Pueblas Blancas on the way from Granada to Seville?
* Anything we should cut out / add in? I was wondering if we should reduce our time in Seville and add it somewhere else - Barcelona / Madrid / Sergovia?
* We'll likely be in Seville to catch the last two days of the Seville April Fair. Good idea / bad idea??

* The only thing that we've locked in is leaving from Madrid on Day 18. Part of me thinks we're crazy to explore the South of Spain and we should stick to the North and drive less distance. For example total km from Provence to Madrid (via Barcelona / Seville / Granada) is 2000km vs Provence to Madrid (via San Sebastian / Bilbao) is 1200km.

* Finally, my husband won't even consider the idea of taking the train. He would much prefer to drive.

Thoughts? Thanks so much
