thank you in advance.

seat61.com/morocco best way to do this but it will be blistering hot in summer winter always best. weather2travel.com BEWARE all the Maroc agnets touts scammers spammers in clever disguises here check profiles carefully.Personally would skip it in summer head to Barcelona Costa Brava perhaps sunfrance.com
instead. hoteldelacite.com Carcassonne is beautiful and lots cooler one of my personal favs.

Happy Travels

Even southern Spain will be miserably hot in the summer. Plus, it's almost a crime to go to southern Spain without visiting the Alhambra, and it's not a day trip from Seville.

It sounds like you haven't done a lot of research - you need to spend some time with some good guidebooks - Lonely Planet is usually good on logistics.

If it were me, and I had signed up to go to Spain in the summer, I'd aim to spend a fair amount of time in the north - there are some good looking mountains back of the north coast, plus the Pyrenees on the French border. Check out the Basque culture and save Morocco for a trip when you can see more of it.

Note that you will not find direct transport from Ronda to anywhere in Morocco, or from Chefchaouen to anywhere in Spain. You will need to travel to one of the ferry ports, or to an international airport.
