Thinking of a trip to Archez near Competa at the end of September and was wondering what the weather's like then generally? I can see weather statistics online, but anecdotal tales are useful. Are we talking shorts and T-shirt still? Eating outside in the day and evening? Swimming in an outdoor pool? That sort of info. Thanks for any help.

The plan is to do a tour of bodegas and such over that time, and seeing the following places - just wondering if anyone has advice as to which places would be best to stop for the night and any hotel recommendations?

-Logrono
-Najera
-San Millan de Cogolla
-Santo Domingo de la Calzada
-Haro
-Briones
-Elciego
-Laguardia

thank you,

Hi there travellers!

Has anyone been to Cuenca, Cercedilla and Toledo? I'm looking for campsites in the area. I only have 1 week there so would like to choose only 2 out of the three. Any idea which two should I choose? Is there anything you recomnmend and do these require a booking and can I just show up? I will be going in the high season in August.

Thanks

Hi guys, we are a mother (55) and daughter (20) spending three weeks in southern Portugal and Spain in November. We fly in to Lisbon and train out of Barcelona a bit over 3 weeks later. We love natural scenic wonders, walking, markets, beaches. we also have the opportunity to stay in a house for a week in southern Spain. I know it is not long but we should be able to get a taste of Spain!
Looking for ideas?
We thought a few days in Lisbon and Barcelona and stopping a few places - perhaps A ay…

I'm going to Barcelona for 10 days last week of September and I had a couple of itineraries in mind. I'm flying out of Barcelona as well, so I don't really want to venture too far, since I want to come back to Barcelona the day of my flight back. I have been to Barcelona before and did most of the tourist sights at that time. Right now, I have booked accommodation for 6 days in Barcelona and I'm not sure how to spend the remaining 4 days. Here are my options:

A. Go north and stay in Girona. The…

I am looking to put down a few roots in Southern Spain for perhaps 3 months. I would like to be able to do day trips in the vicinity and maybe do a few nights in Northern Morroco, and maybe a few nights in Portugal. I would also like to be in a city of a reasonable size and enough going on. I am retired, interested in. buildings, galleries, walking - very open minded really. I have been spoilt with ideas from the Thorn Tree community in the passed so thanking you in advance and looking forward…

Dear Travellers,

we are a family from Germany and want to go by train (AVE) from Madrid to Malaga but we are a little confused about the allowed luggage sizes. I read on the RENFE page that the maximum sizes of one piece of luggage is about 85 x 55 x 35 cm. Unfortunately our suitcases or bags are bigger than that (we are travelling with kids and have to deal with car seats, swimming stuff and so on).
Do you know if they take this maximum sizes really serios?
Is there a possibility maybe to pay…

I'm trying to arrange a visit to Ronda and trying not to backtrack. So I'm entering Andalucia via Jaen, going to Grenada and Sevilla. I thought of going to Cordoba after Grenada, and Ronda after Sevilla. My next stop is Merida. I could go to Ronda after Grenada, but that would mean going from Cordoba to Merida and I prefer not to backtrack to Sevilla to do so. Similarly, I want to stay overnight in Guadalupe and am looking for a bus connection to Placencia. Can anyone help me with suggestions? I…

Hi,

My boyfriend and I are travelling to the Basque Country - flying into Bilbao - for 8 days, from 29th July - 6th August. We're freelance so have to book everything last minute and have found that lots is booked up!

Does anyone have any suggestions of itineraries? We were thinking of three nights in San Sebastian from 29th - 1st but accommodation looks pretty ropey or astronomically expensive. So maybe were going to head more into the countryside and then into France.

We are both new to the…
