We are taking a family trip to Barcelona the week of June 15-22. My daughter has rented an apartment for the family for the week. My husband and I plan to travel on our own after. For years I hae had my heart set on going to Granada and southern Spain. I am not ruling that out yet but since we are in the northern part of Spain. I wonder if that would be a wiser decision. I would love some advise o putting together both trips. The dates for Barcelona are already set Monday to Monday. WE may fly out on Friday and stay outside Barcelona till Monday (unsure as of yet.)
If we stay north, some of the places We would like to visit, Girona, Cadaques, into France Carcassone, and this is were I need some suggestions. possible Alps, Pyrenees, maybe Basque area, We are very flexible and are not bothered by heat. We were in Paris and Provence last August and had a wonderful time. The heat wasn't an issue. We also stayed at 2 lovely bnb with pools for afternoon relaxation.
Or we could head south and see Granada, Seville, Cordoba.
Would love a combination of active mornings and relaxed late afternoons, combo of city, country, and ocean, I don't think there is anything that we don't like to experience. Love soaking up the culture and history of the area. We can do a combo of train, air and driving. We prefer areas the are not overly touristy. We are still deciding how long we will extend the trip. I would say at least another week possible longer.
Love your suggestions.
