Suggestions for France/Spain border stay

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have had two marvellous vacations in France in the last few years - the first time Paris to Sarlat, with a gite in the Dordogne, and the second in the Perpignan to Montpellier area, with a two week gite outside of Narbonne. We love having a home base from which we can travel each day.

This summer, we'd like to bring our children to France for the first time. They will be 12 and 14, and have been in French Immersion school since kindergarten. This will be their first opportunity to actually spend time in a french environment.

My husband is interested in spending some of our two weeks in Spain as well, even if as day trips from our home base. We're particularly interested in seeing Gaudi's work.

So my questions is this: with two weeks, two children and two countries, would you suggest that we find a home base on the Med side and visit Barcelona, or stay on the Atlantic side, and venture around Bilboa?

As always, many thanks in advance for the tremendously useful advice offered by generous Fodorites.
