Spain one or two week's Sep 8 2012

I'm looking at going to Spain in September. Hoping to catch the crossing on the 5 Sep. From Dover, and be in Spain on the 8th. I have my eye on a complex booked just the French side of Barcelona. About a grand all in. Unless you go daft then one and a half grand. Stay over night on the fourth in Dover £10 per night. Up early catch the early morning crossing. Then fly down to Poitiers, Then on to Pau, or Perpignan on the French coast. Making the crossing in to Spain on the Saturday.Those of you that can count will see there is an extra day in there. The idea is. Either leave a day earlier and arrive on time, or spend two night's at one place and ride round and see what's on offer.

Any one interested mail me here.
