Southern Living
One of the Most Chic Country Inns in America

It's hard to say what I love best about L'Auberge Provençale, an oh-so-French country inn located in the small town of White Post, Virginia. Perhaps it's the cushy bed waiting in my guest room. Or it could be the in-house restaurant's world-class cuisine and impeccable service. I'm fond, too, of watching the sun climb over the Blue Ridge Mountains and spill into the Shenandoah Valley.

“L'Auberge Provençale was even cuter in person than in the pictures we saw online. Tucked away in Virginia Wine Country, we were in the perfect spot to do the full wine trail, horseback riding, or even white water rafting if we wanted!"

“I was amazed by how much the place resembles inns I have visited in Provence, especially the surrounding, lush, garden. We were lucky to be there on a fall day that felt more like the middle of summer, so we took our time lounging around in the outdoor seating area, drinking the most delicious, freshly squeezed lemonade before heading out to explore Middleburg."
