Annecy to Bilbao: Where to stop on the way?

I've got two weeks to make it from Annecy to Bilbao in Northern Spain. I was thinking of stopping by places like Bordeaux, Carcassone, even Toulouse. I'm going by public transport, and hope to explore not only the towns/cities I visit, but any surrounding outdoor sights/activities.  


Any small towns, or big cities, I should visit along the way?

Depending on your route, I really liked Lyon, Avignon, and Montpellier. I visited Bordeaux and Carcassonne and especially liked Carcassonne. Guess it all depends on your route. Just south of Bordeaux is Biarritz. I stayed there for almost a week and did day excursions. Check out my blog at : for any other ideas.

Carcassonne is a bit touristy for me.  I haven't been to Toulouse but I'm sure it's worth the stop.  Saint-Jean-de-Luz in Franceand San Sebastian in Spain are worth 1/2 day and a full day respectfully.  San Sebastian has great food, a beautiful beach and an old town with a magnificent cathedral.

Annecy is a beautiful place and worth a couple of hours or more.   I didn't care too much for Carcassonne because there is so much beauty in France that spending time here is redundant... better off in Nernier or Yvoire... or perhaps south.  I don't know Toulouse so can't guide you there.
