L’Auberge Provençale has been the ideal location for romantic getaways, country weddings, and a respite from city life in the bucolic Shenandoah Valley, Virginia setting. For over 39 years, L’Auberge Provençale, under the leadership of Celeste and Alain Borel, has adapted and continually exceeded the needs of our guests. This continues today with an enhanced cleaning, sanitization and disinfection protocols to ensure our customers’ safety and comfort. From enjoying the fresh country air of our grounds with ample room for social distancing, to the many nearby hikes, excellent golfing, and other outdoor experiences you can safely enjoy some time away. You have been taking care of yourselves at home, so now let us take care of you. Read on for the many changes we have made to allow you to travel and get away with confidence.
Stay Small, Stay Safe
Enhanced Environment Cleaning
The Housekeeping department has always taken the time and care to ensure each room is perfect for the next guest. We take pride in creating a safe, clean and comfortable setting to welcome back our guests, and to that end we have recently improved our hospitality cleaning protocols. Hand washing and sanitizing all touch points of the inn throughout the day is the norm. Other enhanced housekeeping procedures further let you have control over your environment and help us ensure that our environment is safe and clean for all:
- Comprehensive COVID-19 guidance is in place, including providing hand sanitizers and frequent cleaning of high-touch areas
- Designated employee to focus on sanitizing, which includes routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces throughout the inn
- Disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces (for example, doorknobs, handrails, tables) can be wiped down and disinfected by employees throughout the day
- Disinfectants used not only meet, but exceed the standard guidelines for COVID-19 as set by the EPA and CDC
- Hand sanitizer in all public areas and at check-in
- Increased cleaning of restrooms and public areas, and providing housekeeping service upon request at check-in or you can choose to forego services
- Self-check in and self-check out procedures are in place
An Intimate & Peaceful Setting
Returning guests tell us that “it is nice to escape, and come back, to a place full of happy memories, knowing we are safe.” L’Auberge Provençale has been a setting for many cherished memories for countless guests. We are ready to welcome you back to make new memories while enjoying the serenity and safety of our country inn. Revel in relaxation with our:
- 10 acres of land with private spaces for picnic lunches
- Chairs in sets of two spread far apart so you can soak up the sun, just the two of you
- Pristine pool available to our guests only
Guest rooms are meticulously cleaned after every guest. You can choose to forego housekeeping during your stay or you can choose to have your room cleaned each day.
- All comforters are cleaned after every stay
- We have removed cloth throw pillows from all rooms
- Private entrances for suites
- Each unit has individual AC/Heating
Decadent Dining En-Suite or Al Fresco
While the dining rooms are currently closed, there are still many ways to enjoy the amazing fares of our chefs. We are strictly following guidance from the Virginia Department of Health and the CDC, but this still allows a few different ways for you to experience our chefs’ luxurious creations. Our waitstaff will be wearing facemasks and washing hands after each food delivery, but you can tell we welcome you back with our smiling eyes.
- We can deliver breakfast to your room, as well as any other meals from our Curbside Menu for in-room dining
- You can also choose to dine outdoors on our terrace, porch, and lawn for any breakfast or dinner (and lunch/brunch on weekends only for now) at tables set up 6 feet apart to allow for social distancing
- Dining tables have been set up in most of our rooms and suites
Safe Dining Procedures
- Our dining room is open at 50% occupancy. Tables have been arranged for social distancing and reservations can be taken for indoor or outdoor seatings on a first come first serve basis
