The Best Way to Get from France to Spain

From December 2013, there is now a high-speed train from Paris to Barcelona that connects you in just six hours and twenty minutes. 

This is the quickest route, even if traveling from Madrid. From Madrid you need to change at present in Figueres or Barcelona, but direct routes are no doubt imminent.

Trains from France to Spain with Elipsos

Elipsos is the name of the 'train hotel' overnight sleeper service from Madrid to Paris via Orleans, Blois, Poitiers, Vitoria, Burgos and Valladolid. The Elipsos website is chaotic (one might say 'broken'). I would not recommend using this service.
