Spain near Easter

Jump to last reply

Hello all! We are planning to travel to Barcelona and San sebastian for 13 days during Easter. March 26- April 8. We have 2 adults and 4 kids ages 9,7,41/2 and 1 1/2. We plan on slower travel with the kids in a spacious apartment and as much as possible and thinking 5-6 nights in Barcelona( I studied abroad there so know the city). We have never been to San sebastian but heard its amazing. First trip to Europe with the kids. Renting a van and driving to San sebastian. Any route suggestions? Any scenic routes through mountains without making to trip longer then 6 1/2 hours? We are thinking of staying in Rioja one night on the way back. Was looking for hotel with indoor pool for the kids but could only find Serotel in Laguardia. Perhaps one night outside of Barcelona near Penedes so we can be closer to airport before flight home. Anyone do this route?

Concerned for hotel closures if we stayed in Rioja for Easter. Anyone stay there for Easter? Were there any restaurants open? Also is it not a good idea to drive on good Friday, are rest stops open? Easter Monday as well?

Thank you!
