A lot depends on what time of year you intend visiting.

I'd spend 2 nights in Granada and 4 nights in Sevilla (with a day trip to Cordoba).

This would give you a taste of Andalucia. With only 6 nights you'll really only have time for a taste of either area.

Ia gree with Cathy, go to Andalucia. Northern Spain is wonderful too but better a bit later in the year.

In March it has to be Andalucia - much better weather than in the North - although 6 nights will only give you a tiny taste of this fascinating region.

Save the North for a future Summer visit.

Great suggestions!!!! Then Andalucia will be!

Granada and Sevilla as main spots ... any other tips about these places? I will be driving.

Thanks

Buy your Alhambra tickets week in advance - can be done up to 3 months ahead - at www.alhambra-tickets.es

Don´t just stick to cities - have at least one night in the countryside to get a different perspective.

I honestly wouldn't bother with driving. With only 6 nights this will barely give you enough time to see Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. A car would be great for exploring but you just don't have time and it will end up being a hassle driving and parking in the cities.

Personally spend two days in Seville, then rent a car and travel to Ronda and onwards to Granada, to drop the car off.

Route planner www.viamichelin.com

Car rental www.auto-euope.co.uk

Accommodation ww.venere.com

In Ronda check accommodation in the old town, Espirito Santo

and Granada I can confidently recommend the Hotel Abadia, with parking
