    Ideas? Links? Prices? Where to avoid etc? Time to drive there (realistically not in a competition). Tips.

    Many thanks guys. Did France for 5 weeks last year and now we fancy the Spanish Costas this year. Ideally a short walk, pedal to shops etc as 'er indoors has a bad back and walking far isn't an option.

    It could depend on when you are going and what temperatures you enjoy. The Costa del Sol has some nice beaches and interesting places to visit but is a lot hotter than the east costas and it can get very humid in August.

    My vote goes to Costa Brava too but not in the school holidays - busy and expensive

    As above.... July and August, hot and uncomfortable in a motorhome (unless you really do like the heat) plus campsites are packed and top whack money wise....
    June ideal.. :)

    One consideration to think of is that mosquitos are very active in some areas of Spain, mainly around canals, lakes and waste disposal areas.
