Visiting the Midi-Pyrenees in Early March 2015

Jump to last reply

Me & My GF are visiting northern spain and midi-pyrenees in early March. We want to drive from San Sebastian to Bordeaux, to Cahors (3 nights). On the way back from Cahors, France We would like to drive through the pyrenees between 10-12 March and get to Barcelona by 13th March. Pic Du Midi, Cauterets, St. Bertrand De Comminges, Bagnères-de-Luchon, Gargas caves, Niaux and Abbey of St Martin of Canigou were some of the places i was interested in visiting driving from Cahors to Barcelona. We would like to stay a night somewhere in the pyrenees and Luchon seemed like a perfect place. However, our concern is the weather and specifically snow. We don't want to drive around in the snow and would like to visit places and cross over into spain but avoid roads with snow. I am a mountain person and coming so close the pyrenees and not driving through the mountains and experiencing mountain panoramas will be heartbreaking! :)

We need help to find a route that shows us the pyrenees but also avoids major snow and slippery roads. We are not interested in the shortest route and want to do as many of above sites driving around as possible although they were widely dispersed. We also need suggestions to find a good town to stay a night before we move on to barcelona. Excitedly looking forward to your suggestions! :)
