I am planning a 2 week driving trip through Northern Spain and Southern France in August. My plan is to fly in and out of Barcelona. I have a tenative itinerary, but fear it may involve too much driving both because we are unfamiliar with Spanish roads and because we will have 2 children (ages 11 and 14). We have taken similar road trips in Ireland, France and Portugal and find that driving can be quite pleasant if the roads are ok and stops are frequent. Our tenatative plans are to stay in Barcelona for a few days, then head across Spain to spend a few days in the San Sebastian area, drive up into France and then back toward Barcelona by way of the French Pyrenees (but not through the mountains!) and then down into the Costa Brava. We want to end the trip with a relaxing few days at a resort on the Costa Brava before leaving from Barcelona.
Is this drive an impossible task? Anys suggestions for must-see sights alomng the way? Is it a problem to take a rental car across the boarder?
*I may also post this inquiry in a few other forums.
