    • Driving from Barcalona Airport to Denia

      Denia Dec 20, 2016 at 11:10 PM

      I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
      We will have the car for a further three weeks.
      What are the points of interest along the way?
      What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
      We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.
      Appreciate some local knowledge

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?

      Santander to Plymouth ferry

      Santander Mar 24, 2016 at 3:43 AM

      I'll be taking this ferry probably around 25 May and wondered how late I can book as a foot passenger (with bicycle). It's hard for me to predict actual arrival date to Santander so wanted to leave it as late as possible, but without then finding it fully booked. I was hoping more passengers would be heading south at that time leaving the north-bound ferry half empty. Does it coincide with school holidays? Maybe I could just turn up and buy my ticket at the port? Any advise much appreciated.

      Cheers

    • Travelling by train or bus?

      Cantabria Feb 27, 2015 at 5:10 AM

      From Biarritz I will travel in July untill Cangas de Onis and back to San Sebastian for two weeks. Most of the hotels are booked because I found them lovely and cheap more or less. I am aware about the bus and trains in this region. It seems that it will be faster travelling by bus. But I love train rides and would like to know which stretch is a must to do by train because of the landscape.

      Drive trip along "Dinosaur Route"

      Dear VTers

      We'd like to do a drive trip in Asturias but have a few concerns we'd like to hear comments on.
      1. We're keen to check out the Dinosaur route - any itineraries to recommend and nice rural cottages we could stay along the way?
      2. Is it better to pick the car up from Bilbao or Santander?
      3. We're not used to driving on the same side in Spain but are generally safe drivers. Can someone suggest if we should even drive and how we can get help from the GPS or maps?

      Any advice on driving would be really appreciated. Thanks

    • Santander to Somo - practical? Taxi cost?

      Santander Sep 8, 2012 at 6:55 AM

      I was thinking of going to Somo for some surf lessons.
      Though I head Somo is very quiet at night - so it makes sense to go to Santander for the nights. I assume the city would be nice.

      Just wondering.

      a) I think the last ferry is not too late (like 9pm) - so how much would a taxi be from Santander to Somo in the nights?

      b) Would it be better to stay in Somo - or in Santander and just commute to Somo in the morning for the surf lessons?


      Any advice appreciated

      Rural house

      Hi all, could anyone recommend a clean and cute rural house in Cantabria for august this year? We're flying into Santander, and would like to stay somewhere in Cantabria for 2-3 days on our way to Asturias (we're driving).

      We would like a place in the countryside rather than the coast, where we can easily go trekking, kayaking and/or horse riding without having to drive around too much. Maybe around Potes could be convenient? We are looking for something really scenic. Once in Asturias we will be staying in Picos de Europa, so maybe something slightly different-looking.

      Thank you very much in advance for your help.
