We booked the Hotel Vetonia (or "Rural Hoteles Vetonia") because it was away from the town of Avila. Are we ever glad we did! It is an old farm, with horse barns, etc. that has been converted to an inn. GORGEOUS!!! Vineyards, a view of Avila's lit walls at night, and away from the hustle and bustle beneath starry skies: a definite 10 out of 10. The furnishings are amazingly gorgeous and very Spanish; the bathrooms, very new. Love the cool old windows and how you open them to the aromas of lavender and other herbs growing outside your window. Have breakfast in the inn, too. How to find: take the first turnoff when you drive into Avila, keep going past ugly modern apartment houses, and follow the road to the palace - and Cebreros. Ask directions - it's worth it! And reasonably priced, too!
