Come and Stay
on: 17 September, 2013, 12:23:25 AM
If anyone is looking for a B&B  in the Moraira area of the Costa Blanca. I have a one bedroomed apartment attached to my villa. 45.00 per night min stay 2 nights, That is for the apartment NOT PER PERSON. It can sleep up to 4 people in comfort, 1 double bed in bedroom and 2 double settee beds in the lounge. 2.50 extra each for breakfast if 4 staying, 5.00 additional laundry charge if more than 3 people staying. Apartment consists Lounge, Bedroom and bathroom.
There is a 8x4 mtr swimming pool right outside your door. Fans are supplied in warm weather, also central heating come the cooler months.

If biking/touring there are some fantastic roads around here and the scenery is amazing. I am quite happy to be your guide as I enjoy the rides myself

Contact Lew on 0034 634 331 715 or PM me on the forum if interested

Hi Yorky, I will PM with more details if you are interested, but basically
Santander A 8 >Bilbao. Bilbao AP68 > Zaragoza. Zaragoza AP23 >Teruel. Teruel AP23>Valencia.
Valencia AP7 > Benissa. Come off AP7 at Benissa and follow local signs for Teulada and Moraira.
A rough check on distances and times for this route is 517 miles and travel time of 7 hours 30 minutes

It is a long time since I did the Santander route as I go Dover/Calais and stop over in Bordeaux as my son lives there.

The other route is
Santander A67,N627,N623 to Burgos. Burgos A1>Madrid. Madrid AP36,E7/A31 >Albacete.
Albacete E7/A31 >Alicante. Alicante AP7 >Benissa, as above come off the AP7 at Benissa and local signs Teulada and Moraira.
Again a rough check for this route is 564 miles and travel time 8 hours 20 minutes.

I think the route I would take would be via Bilbao, it is a long time since I went through Madrid and even with the ring road Madrid was a nightmare.
Hope this helps, most of the routes are on motorways some are toll roads some are not.
The weather is still very warm still hitting the high 20's low 30's most days and it will be like that for a few more weeks.

Suggestions for a route from Santander but avoiding motorways where possible? We'll be looking for places to stay once we've decided where to go.

We're in the early stages of planning for next year. We'll be looking at taking two or three days to get to the coast, then up to a week doing not a lot, then head back to Santander via a differenent route, possibly Portugal.

Hi , I am not that familiar with routes down from Northern Spain to the coast and I would not like to plan a route for individuals just in case it is not to there liking. I was asked what I thought was the best route from Santander down to Moraira,  so I have obviously opted for Motorways giving two options. There are sites, I am sure would advise on great biker routes from Northern Spain to the Costa's avoiding motorways and Toll roads.

I usually find a good starting point for a tour route is by using the Via Michelin website:
www.viamichelin.co.uk/‎
Here you can elect to avoid toll roads and choose from various route types, including scenic (my preference)

The attached shows an example Santander / Moraira, just to get an idea.
Once you've got this far, you can make further minor changes to suit your requirements, although this one keeps motorway distance down to less than 60km and no toll roads (total 522 miles).
The down side is that there're a lot of speed restrictions along the way, so it's a matter of getting the balance right for your style of riding.
When I went to the S. of France last year, it became a little tiresome slowing down for each and every village and I wished I'd planned in a few fast sections along the way, more to break the monotony than for anything else.
Worth bearing in mind.
Mike

Thanks for that Mike I will have a look at that as I have a trip back to the UK coming up at the end of this month, sadly not on the bike though.

Two great roads for getting from Santander to Med coast are the N232 to Vinaros and the N234 to Sagunt.
The latter hits the coast just above Valencia, giving a nice coastal run down to Benissa.
