You may be thinking, what makes Middleburg so romantic? In short, Middleburg blends an idyllic sense of America’s yesteryear with modern country opulence. The town breathes an equestrian heritage set against a brilliant countryside that captures your attention and immediately makes you feel at home. Fit in as a local while you travel down its friendly shop-lined streets and get lost with one another in the rolling hills of what we consider a wine lovers haven.  Classic beauty, scenic vistas, and humble adventures make this romantic destination a timeless memory for any couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of our nation’s capitol.

In essence, if you haven’t caught on yet we’re telling you it’s worth a visit. Fortunately, L’Auberge Provencale is located close enough to Middleburg where an afternoon drive out to the town is enough for you to catch the”love” bug.

The Before Picture of the Peach Room

Now that the planting of the gardens are done and the lawn is mowed, here at our romantic getaway in Northern Virginia, we have been embarking on transforming our Peach dining room into the new Sun Room. Starting with all new fabric from Provence we have made the curtains and tablecloths. The next step is underway with Tim, our incredible faux painter, using real ochre from Roussillon in France to finish the walls to a soft patine. We can hardly wait to set the tables for Friday, June 22nd, when all will be done.
