Late Fall Weekend

5 on November 26, 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed a recent 2nd overnight visit. Everything during our stay was excellent and we were so pleased to see the addition of the new bar area. Great gathering place when traveling with friends. Highly recommend this B&B.


B&B in Boyce, VA

3.8 on October 28, 2016

This B&B (more like an Inn) is quite nice while a bit remote. The room price is a bit high for its remoteness and the price for dinner is also high (although we did not eat dinner there). The staff is very friendly. The TV setup in our room (#5) was awkward as one would have to sit on the bed sideways to view the TV. The one main complaint we had was the pillows which were cheap foam and VERY firm pillows. Our necks still are sore. One would think that an Inn as expensive as this one is would have nice down pillows. We stayed at a B&B in Frederick, MD that was half the price and much nicer. I think at this Inn they are relying on their past reputation. They have done some nice upgrades to the bar and the morning breakfast was VERY nice.


Wonderful

4.2 on October 10, 2016

Wonderful rooms and outstanding meals! A way to turn off/block the outside light would have been nice. No tissues in the room may have been an oversight.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We apologize a box of tissues was not to be found in your room upon arrival. For future stays, please alert a staff member and we would be happy to deliver anything needed to your room. All of our rooms feature traditional Provencal fabric curtains to block out light and noise for both windows and doors. Garden pathway and porch lights outside remain on overnight for the safety of our guests.


Wonderful Getaway in Virginia Horse Country

4.8 on October 10, 2016

We spent two memorable nights at this lovely inn in Virginia horse country in late September 2016. Everything about L'Auberge Provencal was delightful; the room with sizable porch, the sitting room, the steam shower, all the amenities were perfect. Breakfast was substantial and delicious and I can't say enough about both dinners; the first in the new bar/lounge, bistro style, and the second was one of the best if the not the best tasting menu we have very experienced. Staff were gracious, helpful and quick to respond when needed. We will most definitely be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your reviwe! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our Lafayette suite's private balcony and our chef's creative cuisine. We look forward to having you back!


Weekend getaway

3.8 on September 19, 2016

Just What I Needed!

5 on August 30, 2016

I booked a room at L'Auberge Provencale to get away from the job and DC for a little while, and also to do some writing. When Celeste found out, she gave me a free upgrade to a larger, quieter room -- how thoughtful! The place is lovely and peaceful, the room was very comfortable, the garden in front of my windows was a delight to see. The food and wine was excellent and I was interested to see that the State Arboretum was just a few miles away, so I walked through their herb garden and some of the tree plantations. (Too hot to do much more walking -- the place is 600 acres -- but there is a driving trail that takes you all around the property.). Best of all I got a lot of writing done. I will definitely be back!

A splendid evening

4.4 on August 04, 2016

We had a birthday celebration at l'Auberge Provencal and decided to really celebrate by spending the night at their Villa! We were not disappointed! The tasting menu was superb, and our suite at the Villa even better! We had a truly wonderful evening in a charming place!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review, we were happy to be a part of your special birthday celebration. We hope you were able to enjoy the swimming pool at the Villa La Campagnette too!


An Exquisite Retreat

5 on August 02, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at L'Auberge Provencale Bed and Breakfast. We originally booked room #12 in the villa, which is a few miles down the road from the main building and restaurant. The owners were so kind and gave us a free upgrade to #13 on arrival. Our room is charming in every way with many modern amenities, making us feel that we are in the middle of France. We particularly enjoyed the array of books, magazines and games in the common area. Later we had the chance to look at other rooms in the building, which are all thoughtfully designed and very lovely. We had their four course dinner and the food was wonderfully prepared - fresh, innovative, delicious and beautifully presented. The breakfast had many choices and was freshly prepared by the owner himself. The environment is also beautiful and peaceful.

Innkeeper Response
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! We were happy to upgrade your room to your needs from Marie Antoinette's Queen Room #12, to Matisse's King Suite #13. Celeste and Alain love to get to know their guests, especially over breakfast at the Villa La Campagnette. We hope you were able to enjoy the swimming pool there, and the new bar & lounge on the main property!

About the innkeepers

Having lived in Key West for about 10 years, Alain and Celeste decided to leave the tropical paradise and open a country inn. They sold both restaurants, and in their Cessna 172 (Alain is a pilot), found the location in Virginia to open their inn. They landed in White Post, in the rolling hills of Virginia Hunt Country. Far enough from the city, but not too far, the property known as Mount Airy.
