My husband and I are planning to go to Spain for our honeymoon in late May-early June. This is my tentative plan - any specific location or hotel recommendations, or words of advice or caution?
Fly into Madrid, spend 2/3 days (possible trip to Toledo)
Either rent car in Madrid, or take train to Santiago de Compostela and then rent car.
Spend one week to ten days driving across northern Spain, stopping in Picos de Europa, Bilbao, San Sebastian. Stay in Casas Rurales (recommendations?)
Drop off rental car in Girona, take train down to Barcelona.
Spend 2/3 days in Barcelona, take AVE back to Madrid.
Does this sound like a good plan? I lived in Barcelona for a summer back in college, so I know it fairly well and can still fake it in Spanish. Since this will be our honeymoon, I thought Northern Spain was a better choice than Southern, since our goal is to stay off the beaten path and have a relaxing trip.
