Travel from Logrono to Paris, Barcelona or San Sebastian.

We are completing the first leg of the camino ending at Logrono on July 3 rd and are looking for the best travel route back to Paris to catch our return flight back to Australia on the 15th July.
We are considering Barcelona in the south but have been advised that San Sebastian in the north is well worth a visit.
Choosing Barcelona as the first destination would change the list of places to visit such as locations along the south of France as preferred 'must see' spots such as Marseille, Monaco , Cannes etc.
Choosing San Sebastian as the first destination would allow us to visit Bayonne, Biarritz, Bordeaux etc.
Can anyone please suggest the best route of travel in a hire car from Logrono? Barcelona or San Sebastian?

Since you will be ending your camino adventure in Logroño, I would head north to San Sebastian-Donostia, and then on to Biarritz and Bayonne, far more interesting that Barcelona, which will be filled with tourist in early July. The only problem with San Sebastian-Donostia during the first week of July is that the Donosti Cup, a major football camp (29 June-6 July), will be taking place, you hotel rooms are at a premium until 7 July. But there are a lot of options outside of SS.

If you are intending to fly on from your next destination to Paris then be aware that there are only internal flights from San Sebastian airport. As Robert suggets, you can make your way to France and fly from Biarritz to Paris Orly or use the SNCF trains to get to Paris.
