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.
