When I was little I dreamed of a princess wedding so when I passed the gate of the Château de Tilly, my eyes lit up and I knew that it was the ideal place to make my dream of a little girl come true. ! My husband and I fell in love with the visit, where we were warmly welcomed by Aurélie. The grounds are magnificent, the gardens are perfectly maintained, the chateau is splendid. An exceptional setting that allows you to take wonderful photos. The orangery is the perfect place if you have a large number of guests. There we celebrated the secular ceremony and we had the reception where the view of the illuminated castle is worthy of a fairy tale. We reserved the domain for three days, we wanted to prepare on the spot and we enjoyed enjoying the place over a long weekend with our families. There are many rooms, worthy of large hotels, which can accommodate guests who wish. We took the Photobooth option, the price is much more affordable than with specialist service providers and we delighted young and old alike who got caught up in the photo game. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to this enchanting place and the kindness and availability of the owners who did everything to make this moment perfect. All our guests were charmed by this magical place! Thank you again to Aurélie and Gaëtan!

Dommage qu'il soit trop loin, dommage de cette augmentation de 3000 € par rapport à l'an dernier, bel endroit

Sumptuous place for a wedding. Idyllic setting. The rooms are very nice and well maintained and you sleep very well. The garden is grandiose and perfectly pruned.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
