    So we leave 2 weeks today and are heading to the Bay of Roses in Spain. We only have 14 days so we plan on 2 days of 4/5 hour drives from Calais. We bought 13 camping cheques as we only swapped our caravan for a MH in the last couple of months. Any help with route and sites would be fab..

    Safe trip. But can't understand why you posted it under the rally section unless you plan a big meet up along the way. (y)

    Not been to Roses for a while.. enjoy.

    Can't comment on the cheques as never used them. I used to go that way a lot but used non toll. Calais, Rouen, chartes, Blois, Chateauroux, Toulouse, Narbonne. Spain.

    Back to a very damp and cold Essex :-(
    Calais to Roses in 2 days - hmmmmmmm, 750ish miles - sure it can be done but not much fun .
    I reckon that to do it in 10 driving hours you'll have to use a lot of peage which doesn't give you many route options.
    Viamichelin offers a few.
    Make the most of the Sunday to eat up the miles (almost truck-free roads).

    Enjoy - you will. :)

    We I'd it in 2 days 2 nights in Aptil but it means long days driving1st night a motorway aire, 2nd night Calella, camping roca brava, stopped for supplies in Santa Susana, Roses midday on 3rd day, but it was a trek with only me driving and a few bob spent on tolls.

    Stayed in Roses overnight the 3rd night but moved on to Platja Cambrils for 10 days after that, much nicer sit & resort, Salou is a short bus ride away,

    Port Aventura if you have saucepans, and 2 lovely little beaches at Cap Salou that are good for a days visit, plus a waterpark and a great beach in La Pineda.

    Fast inexpensive train ride into Barcelona if you want some culture, the Segrada Familia, etc.

    Whatever you do have a great time.
