We have decided that we will go to France and Spain in Vera this year when we finish the season. So after much deliberation and plenty of amazon ordering, we have worked out a route.
The idea is to go down to leave home in late October and stay overnight near Folkestone, travel over on the Channel Tunnel to Calais, then onwards to Le Mans, where we plan to stay overnight, then travel to Limoges or nearby and stay another night. We will then go on to a little French town in the Midi-Pyrenees and stay with some friends who have a B&B there for a few nights.
Once we leave there we will travel down towards Spain, the open road and the Costa’s. Not sure where will end up but so far recommendations have been Calpe, Benicassim and Roquetas de Mar, we shall see wherever the road takes us.
