And she basically loves this book (she hasn't left for Spain yet; I'll update after her trip.)
Dear reader, you will have to take care of the cash and rental of the small car, but the guidebook is right here. Want to get off the beaten path in Spain? Look no further.
The book is organized around 25 driving tours of various lengths (from 1 day to 5 days), arranged by geographic region. Each tour includes recommended sites, towns, lodgings, restaurants, and practical information. All of this is introduced by practical material that summarizes everything from weather to how to rent a car in Spain. It's a self contained guide.
Then there's the photography. All of the tours feature lovely color photographs of town and landscapes. There are good, simple color maps as well, but one thing potential readers familiar with the DK Eyewitness series will want to know is this: There are no 3-D color cutaway drawings that you may have seen in other DK guides. The material in this book doesn't lend itself to that kind of illustration, because these places are about subtle contemplation rather than grandeur.
This is a book armchair travelers will love too, because each driving tour is narrated just enough to allow the reader to imagine the sites and listings. If you're up for a rural jaunt in Europe's most beautiful country, this is your book.
