    • 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

Would love to see Salamanca, Toledo, Seville. Rhonda, Cadiz, Puerta banus, malaga, granada and majorca. Don't mind skipping Barcelona but we want to see Andalusia really well. Don't want to drive from Madrid to Seville but I don't mind driving around Andalusia (Blablacar is also an option).

      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.

      I was contemplating getting off a cruise ship at Cadiz in Mid July. It was my intention to hire a car and travel to Seville, Malaga, Cartegena and Valencia. 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?

      Car hire without problems - to Covadonga

      by nomad7890 Online Now Apr 19, 2011 at 9:58 AM

      I have been researching transportation from Oviedo to Covadonga. alsa.es has buses but we would have to stay there longer than we want to spend there - so am looking at renting a car. I rented a car via Hertz in Malaga before, but am looking into other companies. This is what we need:

      - no hassles - I would like to pay all possible insurances so if I hit something I don't have any out of pocket expenses. I know, this is not optimal but I prefer it that way.

      - pick up and return at reasonable hours. There's a Hertz and Avis right by the train station/bus station in Oviedo ... I am leaning in that direction except for the expen$e, but pick up is 9:30 am, so we will need to pick up late the date before. Anyone open earlier/later? The airport location is too far.

      - need around 300 KM - we will only have the car for the 71 km. from Oviedo to the Covadonga sanctuary.

      -no surprises - sometimes I'd rather pay more than have any car mileage or other surprise from a smaller rental.

      I saw the other recommendations in this forum and did not care for the companies mentioned.

      Any stable car companies or other suggestions? We just need the car for one day. I may just be renting from Avis and getting it over with - but if there is a better opiton I would welcome hearing about it. Thanks.

      Hi there. I am thinking of moving to Oviedo in September to come and teach English. It seems like an interesting beautiful city with lots to do and see.

      - Does anyone know anything about the TEFL scene there? Lots of private schools? etc.
      - Are there any mountains nearby? I like to walk and climb.
      - Finally, is there anywhere to play snooker in Oviedo? I love that too!

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
