Touring near Barcelona & Southern France...anyone have advice?

My wife and I are headed to Barecelona this summer and thinking about trying to get in a week of bike touring. Does anyone have any experience/suggestions on routes or areas to focus on between Barcelona and southern Farnce (where we need to end up)?

Also, any guidance on renting a BMW in that neck of the woods?

Thanks.

Still looking for info? I've had my bike based in BCN for the last few months and have done a few very nice local rides. Fantastic bike country I must say... Send me a PM if you have specific questions. Cheers
