From Sablet to Barcelona.

We plan to drive from Sablet to Barcelona in mid december. Can anyone advise me as to what the weather will be like and how long the car trip is likely to take? Any safety issues I need to consider.

If you pick up a rental car in France and drop off in Spain, there will be a very substantial one-way fee. Someone has to go to Barcelona and drive the car back to France.

If you Google "weather provence", you will find dozens of sites that say what the weather has been like in past years. There is absolutely nowhere that can tell you what it will be like this December.

For driving times, see www.viamichelin.com

NIck is right...you will be hit with a drop odd fee for the rental car of up to several hundred euros. You could take your rental car to a French town close to the Spanish border, like Perpignan, drop the car there and take the train to Barcelona.

Usually weather is rather mild in mid december. It barely snow, but that can happen once in a while (sort of every 5 yrs).

For the time being, weather has been very mild and nice this fall

Sablet to Barcelona takes about 4 1/2 to 5 hours - it is a mostly very pretty drive. Take care not to arrive too late in Barcelona as the peripherique is a nightmare during rush hour and in darkness.
