Car travel Barcelona-Madrid-Granada-Valencia-Barcelona

Hi , we are family of five and planning our holidays , and we have 7 days for Spain, 6 nights to be precise. We are planning to hire a car and to drive from Barcelona to Madrid, then to Granada, then Valencia and back to Barcelona, as our flight is from Barcelona. I was wondering is it worse and possible to try to fit in all above destinations in 7 days, and at the same time not to spend all the time on the roads, but to be able to see around as well? If there are any other suggestions regarding how to plan our trip, we would appreciate it. Thank you

I dont see how you can fit everything in 6 nights without having the feeling that you're spending the whole time on the road. Madrid and Barcelona could fill easily 6 nights EACH! And both Granada and Valencia deserve 2 nights at least. Also, consider that Granada is quite far from Barcelona by car. For one week I would either do Barcelona and Valencia, just Barcelona (and daytrips maybe to closeby areas or mountains) or maybe Barcelona and Madrid (but in that case the car will be a hassle more than a help, because it is better to go by train and then parking is quite difficult in both cities)
