“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Stayed here one night. We had a room in the main house. Room was very nice, spacious, well furnished. The only negative was that the inn is close to a fairly busy highway so there is some highway noise, but not enough to be a big issue. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The owners were very friendly and seemed genuinely happy to have you there. We will return if we're in the area again.

We experienced your restaurant for the 1st time and cannot praise you enough for such a wonderful Anniversary dinner celebration! The food was very well done with a combination of flavors second to none. The scallops just melted in our mouths and I have never experienced lamb so tender!

The service and atmosphere was impeccable! Fresh flowers adorning the tables along with the perfectly sunny textiles gave the candlelit room a cherry glow! Service flowed like a well synchronized dance with pleasant staff and unobtrusive attention to detail.

We will definitely be back, even if it isn’t for a special celebration. Thank you for such a wonderful night!

We stayed at L'Auberge Provencale Sept. 15, 2012, for our 15th anniversary, seeking restfulness, a culinary adventure, a bit of Virginia history and yes, some luxury.

We got all that and more. We were quickly directed from the main house to a villa about .5 miles away and were pleasantly surprised. Both properties are delightful, with abundant places to sit, sip, swim and/or chat. French country decor throughout, with statuary and thoughtful touches.

Our room at the villa (#17) was just lovely - a big bedroom with bed, chaise lounge and fluffy robes, and a huge bathroom with claw-foot tub attached.

We headed back to the main house for dinner and it was hands-down the best we've ever had (also the most expensive! Bill: $270 including tip). We began with cocktails on the wide front porch, gazing at the mountains and marveling at the train that passed across the landscape as the sun went down.

Inside, my husband got the chef's tasting menu, while I got three three-course meal. It was a long dinner, but every plate that came out had a taste and texture combination that was new to us. Fantastic scallops and steak. Amazing risotto. Delightful cheese plate.

Back to the villa at 11 p.m., at which point I took a bath in the huge tub. Husband zzzzzzzz.......

Breakfast was a delicious quiche with homemade granola and yogurt. I read the paper by the pool, accompanied by one of the owner's two dogs, Bernadette. What a character.

Perfect, playful end to a delightful getaway. Highly recommend.

We had a two-night stay here last week that included two fabulous dinners and two innovative breakfasts. The food here is absolutely first-rate and the wine list, which I believe was built by Celeste, has many wonderful selections. They hold the "Best of Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator, one of less than 900 locations on the planet.

The breakfasts deserve a special compliment...one included duck breast and the other pork loin as the meat.

If you live within four or five hours of Boyce, Virginia, and you want a romantic food-centric getaway, L'Auberge is worth the trip.

Room Tip: We were in Suite 1 which is spacious and conveniently located.

My husband and I have been coming here through our entire relationship, from our first trip tgther through our engagement to our pregnancy with our daughter. We have never been dissapointed.

The rooms with steam showers are amazing and quit relaxing, comfy beds and the extras they provide are always wonderful.

The gourmet picnic baskets are the best! I have severe food allergies and they always accommodate me. One basket included lobster salad along with with steak and avocado sandwhiches! They even arranged a canoe trip for us to take our lunch on.

They are centrally located to great vineyards to spend the day at. The staff always remembers us when we come back. And the breakfasts have always been outstanding! We have never had dinner in the restaurant though. When I was pregnant they sent us up a small dinner to the room since I wasn't feeling well.

Engagements, Marriage and now a baby! We are happy to have been such a nice part of your life! Maybe, on a special anniversary you can try the dinners. That is what we definitely are about! A gourmet picnic is pretty yummy too, I must say.
And as noted we are always happy to accommodate any allergies or food restrictions for all of our guests here at L'auberge Provencale! We look forward to your return!

My husband and I just stayed here in Suite 11. This place is so special. We felt we were in the French countryside! The staff is so nice and friendly, particularly Celeste and Jamie. The restaurant is worth trying at least one night and our suite was beautifully decorated, big, and romantic. Breakfast was a dream; it was our favorite and we were always greeted with a smile from Jamie. The place is also close to wineries, horseback riding, and other activities. Definitely recommend it!

We stayed at L'Auberge Provencale in early July. The building is quite old, but the rooms have been decorated tastefully and with attention to detail. We felt that the manager's attitude was one of arrogance when he greeted us and when he showed us to our room. The remaining staff were much more pleasant, yet still rather "stuffy". Our dinners were well prepared but quite expensive when compared with others we had enjoyed on this trip. The delicious buffet breakfast included ample offerings as well as a hot entree. Overall, we felt it was too expensive an experience and seriously doubt we would return if revisiting this area of Virginia.

Room Tip: Plan to spend a lot of money for a good room.

The "manager" is no longer with us at this time. If anyone greeted our customers with arrogance we do indeed apologize. Alain, Christian, myself and the rest of our staff are courteous and nice people. I am very puzzled that the impression was "stuffy" from the rest of the staff.
At L'Auberge Provencale we use only the very best of ingredients in our cuisine. That translates into higher food costs. Our scallops are diver "day boat", and all of our fish is wild and line caught. It is shipped to us in some of the most beautiful boxes you have ever seen overnight by Fed Ex. The fish is caught at 4:00 today and will arrive tomorrow morning by 10:00. Our Kobe/Angus, Wagyu Beef is $24.95 a pound now. The rest of our meats are bought locally to support local farmers and are raised impeccably at a much higher cost then what you buy in a grocery store. All the gourmet items, including the olive oils, vinegar, and spices are top notch. And we pay our chefs very, very well.
One has to expect a higher cost for the quality of ingredients. It is very hard these days with the rising cost of energy and food (two things not counted in inflation) for us to make a small profit.
Our staff is professional and nice people who work hard and need a living wage. We are a low volume, high end experience for the discerning traveler.
Hopefully, if you do a return visit you will be greeted with a smile!
