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!

My husband and I recently visited for the second time and this time surpassed our expectations -- once again. This time we stayed at Villa Capanette. Our room (#13) was cheerful, spacious and overlooked the meadow. The Villa has a beautiful pool which was very welcome with the heat. Breakfast was served around the pool the next morning. On our previous visit (February), we stayed at the main Inn. The room was again beautiful, spacious and had the most exquisite bathtub. The meals at L'Auberge are divine - from the full breakfast (our first morning five courses including peach panna cotta and second morning an incredible eggs benedict) to the dinners (which defy written description here except to say that EVERYTHING is worth having. If you stay two nights, you must go there both nights so that you can plan your next night. The grounds are beautiful with many spots to just sit and take in the countryside. Day trips include Winchester and wineries. Celeste, Alain and Christian are wonderful hosts for an extraordinary experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. We enjoyed #13 at the Villa (overlooking the meadow) in July and the pool was most welcome. At the main inn, the far room with the fireplace and bathtub was wonderful in February.

Everything was impeccable, the rooms are clean, very tastefully decorated and welcoming, giving you the feeling you are actually in France. The grounds are well taken care of, with a beautiful garden and flower beds in front of each room. They also have their own herb and vegetable garden, a large porch in front of the house, and a patio area outside the restaurant, refreshments and pastries for the guests.

Dinner was amazing, both in terms of plating as well as taste. We tried the three-course menu for one person and the five-course menu for the other and split everything. It's the kind of food you have to savor slowly paying attention to every taste and texture. It may seem a bit pricey, but the executive chef does an amazing job. We heard him explain to someone that he personally picks the ingredients for each day's menu, so everything is fresh. The service was outstanding, better than at any other restaurant we had been to before. Wine is expensive.

Breakfast was cooked by one of the owners, who is French, and was delicious.

What impressed us the most was the attention to detail in every category. You cannot stay/dine here and not notice the effort that goes into ensuring you, as a guest, feel welcome.
