Driving from Palamos, Spain to Avignon, France: where to stop

Hello, We will be driving after 7 days in Palamos to spend 4 nights in Provence on a weekday in late August. Where should we stop along the way to break up trip/eat?

I hope this isn't a rental car, or you're going to pay a king's ransom to pick it up in Spain and drop it off in France. Unless you're going back to Spain.

You have a map, I presume? It should show you where you might stop along the way, depending on when you arrive where.

If looking for a historic city on that route check out Aigues-Mortes!

Load down a guidebook and you will see that there are dozens of nice/interesting places between Marseille and Figueres. All depends on your interests.

hi, yes we are doing a roundtrup : France to spain.. is stopping along the coastal villages/towns an option or too much off the highway? We are not looking to get to destination the fastest but instead relax and see areas new to us.

Perpignan may be a good place to get off outoroute and check out nice old city or better for kids superb beaches- just short drive from autoroute.

Perpignan is indeed lovely, as are Narbonne and Collioure.
