We stayed in Lydie's house for 3 nights with 2 adults and 5 kids between 10 and 13 years old. The house was just perfect for us! The kids loved the pool, and we all enjoyed eating in the garden in the evenings. The house is perfectly situtated: only 15 minutes from Avignon by car, and very central to all the sights we wanted to see. Thank you very much to Lydie and her mother for the warm welcome, the bottle of rosé wine in the fridge and the fantastic house! We will be back!

Lydie"s home is a perfect family retreat in Provence. Just minutes outside of Avignon, it's settled in a quiet neighborhood of Barbentain. Our stay included 4 adults and 2 teens. Lydie's home had plenty of room for all of us and the kids loved the pool. Centrally located within numerous Provence touring destinations and vineyards. Clean and comfortable. Thank you Lydie!

Nice house with a really well equipped kitchen. The pool and pool house are relaxing. The garden could do with a little more care but overall a good house and reasonable price. We enjoyed our three nights with the family.

Great location as a base for us to visit Provence. The house is cosy, and the kitchen is well equipped allowing us to prepare some decent meals during our stay in Provence. Lydie's mother, Giaclina, is a friendly lady and even offered us a bottle of wine. We've enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much.

Perfect for a relaxing long weekend with family and friends!! We went in Spring time and we found the house to be perfect for what we were looking for -big house in the country in a relaxing area-. The house is located in a very quiet area close to most touristic areas like Avignon, Orange, Arles, etc. The furniture and apparel were all good and the house is big and full of spaces to relax and chill out. Checking in and checking out was easy be the owner was flexible and adapted to our arrival and departure times. We found everything very clean and tidy. A great experience!!!!e

The experience at the Villa kept unfolding and getting better as we spent more time there. The arrival and the tour was professional while being warmly welcoming. The space is beautiful with country charm and in perfect repair. The Barbentane community was quiet and lovely at this time of the year. The location was perfect for easy visits throughout Provence. I could not have been more pleased with our stay. I would highly recommend this hosting for couples and larger groups. Very special.

Let me give you a little bit of History about me, my family and the House and how it comes it is listed here today.
My father was raised in an old house in the center of Barbentane village. In 1969 he decided to buy a land outside the village. This land was then known by locals as “Les petits Pins” (“The small pine trees”). Working in the construction industry my father wanted to build himself his own house. After two years, working on vacations, evenings, weekends and receiving some advices and help from some colleagues, the House was built.
Early 2000, while I am working for an IT consulting company in south of France, I decide to launch a personal project: make this Family Country House a Vacation Home for myself and my Guests all year long.
After 5 years, working on vacations, some weekends and receiving some advices and help from my father and my mother, the Vacation Home was completed!
The Villa and the Garden went through renovations and upgrades meeting main requirements: keep true to the natural setting of La Montagnette and Provence, be comfortable, easy living, spacious and secure.
Welcome and Enjoy your stay in your Vacation Home in Provence.

Je voudrais partager avec vous une partie de mon histoire, celle de ma famille et de cette maison et comment elle est ici aujourd’hui.
Mon père a grandi dans une vieille maison dans le centre du village de Barbentane. En 1969 il décida d’acheter un terrain en dehors du village. Ce terrain était alors appelé par les villageois “Les petits Pins”. Travaillant dans le bâtiment mon père voulait construire lui-même sa maison. Au bout de deux années de travail pendant les vacances, les soirées, les weekends et avec les conseils et l’aide de quelques collègues, la maison était construite.
Au début des années 2000, alors que je travaille pour une société de conseil informatique dans le sud de la France, je décide de réaliser un projet personnel : transformer cette maison de campagne familiale en une résidence de vacances pour moi-même et pour mes invités tout au long de l’année.
Au bout de cinq années de travail pendant les vacances, certains weekends et avec les conseils et l’aide de mon père et de ma mère, la résidence de vacances était achevée.
La Villa et le Jardin ont été rénovés et améliorés de façon à conserver l’aspect naturel de la Montagnette et de la Provence tout en étant confortables, faciles à vivre, spacieux et sécurisés.
Bienvenue et Profitez de votre séjour dans votre résidence de vacances en Provence.
