      Isla de Formentera Jan 26, 2015 at 7:30 AM

      Thinking about staying at Hotel Cala Saona in September and would like to visit different beaches and go into town for dinners, but prefer not to rent a car or motor bike. Might try bicycles part of the time, but also wondering if there is dependable bus service from Cala Saona into town, and to some of the other beaches. Or would we be better off staying somewhere else with better bus connections?

    • 3/4 day trek in the Picos staying at refuges

      Picos de Europa Jan 20, 2015 at 11:51 AM

      Hi there - I wondered if you might be able to help as I've done lots of research but am having trouble coming to any conclusions! My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenagers 15, 17 and 19) are coming to the Picos in the summer en route to Portugal. Ideally we'd like to go to a hotel/pension where we can stay one night, leave our baggage and car and start a circular walk the next morning that will last about 4 days - staying each night at a different mountain refuge and returning after the 3rd night to the hotel to pick up our kit, stay one final night and depart south. We're all fairly fit and up for decent walks although don't want to experience the cable I've read about ('a fall could be fatal') on the Central Picos circuit!! (am hoping there must be an alternative to this steep section?) Do you have any suggestion of where we should base ourselves (hotel/town), which part of the Picos we should concentrate on and any specific routes/refuges that would fit this brief? Would very much appreciate any advice anyone can give

    • Does anyone know of a good cycling group in Alcudia, Majorca?

      Alcudia Jan 16, 2015 at 4:39 AM

      This is where I am going this summer! I haven´t told my family yet, the kids will go wild, my wife will forgive me all my sins. It is bang in the middle of cycling land in the north coast of Majorca, where all the top teams train, except they all go much earlier in the year. What I would like is to join some kind of local cycling group operating in the area. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with cycling groups in the area? I appreciate any help, Thank you!

    • Beach towns near Barcelona

      Barcelona Jan 4, 2015 at 3:20 PM

      Hi all. This my first posting on VT. We are two retired couples traveling to Spain and Portugal next September for almosta month. We are flying into Barcelona on Sept 6 and thought it would be nice to head to one of the nice beach towns north or west of Barcelona for the first few days as we settle into the time zone! A nice sea view would be lovely, and somewhere where we can easily walk out to local restqurants . I've done some research and can't decide between somewhere like Tossa de mar in the Costa Braga or maybe around d Cambrils in Costa Dorada. Thoughts would be so appreciated. We were not planning to rent a car until later in our trip, so we will be making our way from Barcelona Into. Airport. Then we would move on to Barcelona., Madrid, etc. Before heading to Portugal.

      Hello,

      My husband and I (both in our early 30s) are going to be in Barcelona mid May for 4-5 nights. What's the best are to stay in? I was looking at maybe the Gothic Quarter?
      Are there places we should take day trips to nearby that we can take the train to?
      Is 4 nights enough or do we need 5? We will be taking the train to France for the rest of the trip.

      Thanks!

      Hello there, I'm just looking for a bit of advice. I'm planning a visit for 10 days to Toremollinos in May 2015. I've have been researching a lot of hotel and think the one I like best especially for my toddler is Sol Principi. Has anyone been there and if so what was you opinion and feel for the hotel. Also I'm looking for a holiday that has quite a fair bit to do outside the hotel so we arnt tied everyday all day. I've seen there are theme parks zoos and aquamarina parks not far from the town and was just wondering has anyone visited these. I'm just tying to get a feel doe the place. This is our first holiday in 7 years and our first time taking our 2yr old daughter abroad and so desperately want to get it right for us all.

      1 night in Gijon!

      by Cutler05 Online Now Jan 28, 2008 at 3:46 PM

      hi guys,

      yes it'd that time of the year again! My family and I are off to Spain in August, yippee! Just wondered if anyone could recommend a suitable hotel for 1 night only in or around Gijon, as we have 1 night to kill before our villa is available and Gijon seems to be the perfect midway point. Would like to know if any hotels offer family rooms/adjoining room as boys will be 12 and 15 and getting too large to sleep in makedo camp beds. Not sure if hotels would allow them a room on their own either. We're not fussed about too many 'facilities' or stars as long as the hotel is comfortable and friendly.
      All suggestions greatly received!
      Happy travelling
      Thanx

      We are visiting Gijon over christmas and new years with KIDS! 4 year old, 2 year old and 8months old.
      Are there any place we should visit? Any playgrounds?
      Please give me some recommendation on family friendly (not classy) restaurant that serves good food.
      Thank you thank you thank you. I am so excited to visit such a beautiful city.

      Also, if anyone knows.. Is it easy to get around town by bus with kids? If we taxi, I thought we would need child car seat. (am I right?) so, bus is the only option seems like.
      If there are any recommendation, comments, advice, please let me know.
