Sounds exciting. As far as beach in Spain, I would recommend the Atlantic coast. We spent 4 days in Conil de la Frontera last spring and loved it. We stayed at this hotel http://de.hipotels.com/hotel-flamenco-conil-in-cadiz.htm and loved the location so much we plan to go back as soon as possible. There’s a small town which is walkable from teh beach as well as a couple of closer restaurants but it is far from being a city.  Barcelona also has a really great beach but it is much more of a city beach and even has free WiFi in places. I am impressed with the area called Barcelonetta and would get a hotel there next time for sure. I think you will like Barcelonetta if you are after relaxing over city as it’S close to the beach and full of restaurants. Just an FYI, I really like the food and wine in Spain but many people have told me they found it disapointing so maybe you should manage your expectations if you don’t like seafood or tapas. Sangria is always a crowd pleaser 😉

I don’t really have French recommendations but I would love to visit wine coutnry in Frnace and if you get the chance, there are many wineries where you could do a tasting.

I think it’s smart to spend more time in fewer places!

Spain and Portugal can be tricky for vegetarians – not sure how strict you are about meat?

I lived in Spain for ~6 months, but that was before I became a vegetarian. Both Spain and Portugal tend to have very meat-and-potatoes-centric cuisine. They also have lots of (excellent) vegetables and seafood, but they tend to use a small amount of meat in many of the dishes as a flavoring (think green beans with bits of bacon, etc.)

They do also eat a lot of eggs – you can get vegetarian tortilla espanola (like a potato omelet) everywhere in Spain, and I’m sure you’d be able to find the same in Portugal. If you stay in bigger cities, it will be easier to find veg. options, but if you go out to any of the pueblos, it will be a challenge. In the smaller villages, the whole idea of vegetarianism is kind of unfathomable to the natives.
