Hi all. I'll be travelling with my family of 4 this summer. Our current plan is to fly into Biarritz, train it to San Sebastian, then pick up a car and head to Santander for a few nights, and then drive on to Portugal. Starting in the northern end, and ending in the Algarve. I have a three part question.
First, does anyone know if the temps in the Basque region in July are hot enough to require A/C? i'm finding it difficult to find a place to stay that has A/C, and wondering if it's necessary or not.
Secondly, does anyone have any suggestions for travel from Spain to Portugal. I don't think there are any train options along that northern route, and so I had thought renting a car (pick up in Spain) and dropping off in Portugal would be my only option. I don't want to fly.
Third, does anyone have any suggested towns that we should stop off at on our way from Santander to Porto? I've got two young boys and so breaking up the trip and getting out and exploring is always a must.
Thanks in advance.
