From October 1st to April 30th the heating system is on in the house.

Those charges are to be paid at check out.
Our stay in Provence was a dream, and Lydie's house was an important part of it. We were two couples and four young children. The house was perfect for us. The weather was good, the children enjoyed the garden a lot, we had lunch outside, and our dinners were very agreeable, in the dining room that overlooks the garden.
This a very well equipped house, and the kitchen has everything you'll need to prepare meals with the wonderful ingredients you can only find in France (the only things missing: a cutting board, knives and some recipients for leftovers). Giaclina, Lydie's mother, was very welcoming and even left some crayons, pencils and a coloring book for the children and a bottle of wine for us. She was also very patient with us during check-out (thank you, thank you!). Oh, and before our arrival she did some grocery shopping for us, since we'd be arriving at night from a 24h trip with the kids. What could be better than that?
We loved the location, close to many attractions and about 10 minutes away from Avignon. You have to have a car, though.
Lydie answers the emails really quickly, our communication was excellent.
If you, like us, are a family with kids, bear in mind that one of the bedrooms is downstairs, in the basement, so it will not do for small kids because of the stairs. Also, you pay for electricity in the end of your stay, which in our case turned out to be EUR 13 per day.
I hope to go back to Provence really soon, and Lydie's house is definitely where we will stay.
I have purchased some additional items for the kitchen :-)
The electricity and gas are to be paid at check out only in winter time when the heating system is on (October 1st to April 30th).

Lydie De Negri: Lydie has a beautiful home in Barbentane. It is in a wonderful location for day trips to the fascinating sites in this part of Provence. The home is warm, comfortable and very well kept. Our only regret was that we were there at a very cold time of the year—it snowed! We never got a chance to appreciate the grounds around her home, nor the pool, or the pool house. Maybe next time!
We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful house. We recommend it for anybody who would like to understand the true atmosphere of Provence. Lydie and her parents are so welcoming that we felt like at home :) We wish to come back there soon :)
The best experience I've had on AirBNB to date. Excellent information before the trip. An absolutely wonderful host at the villa. The place is amazing, and close to many lovely things. The best people and the best place. It was an absolute joy.
Lydie’s Villa was perfect for our group of six—3 couples from Minnesota spending a week in Provence. The spacious house and large garden is lovely and well cared for. We had a warm welcome from Lydie’s parents who were there to check us in when we arrived. The house is well equipped. The large, sunny dining room was our favorite room with its big windows offering views of the charming garden and the town of Barbentane in the distance. This was where we started everyday with breakfast and gathered at the end of the day with a glass of wine to plan the next day’s adventure. The pool and pool house was another relaxing gathering place to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of the garden overlooking the house. Yes, some of us took a dip in the pool even in September!
The villa was in a perfect location for day trips throughout Provence. We explored Avignon, Arles, Orange, Nimes, Aix, Les Baux de Provence and Pont du Gard among other places. But most of all, we enjoyed experiencing life in the village of Barbentane. We were fortunate to be there to attend the annual Horse Festival, (Cheval en Fete) featuring Camarque ponies being paraded through the village and a marvelous horse show. We shopped in the local stores and dined in the local restaurants and explored the local sights—the Bretoule Windmill (a short walk), Barbentane’s medieval tower and the Frigolet Abbey. We had a wonderful and memorable time in Provence at Lydie’s villa. We highly recommend it.
It was really great to stay at Lydie's villa! Very comfortable, kind and stylish, fresh air, small Provence city Barbentane near the villa, everithing reflected a very good atmosphere of real Provence. Recommend to stay there!
This place is very lovely. We stayed there with our dogs for 10 days. At our arrival we were greeted by Lydies Mum and Dad and they showed us arround. You will find a huge place, which accomodates easily 8 people. The only mini down were the pine needles which fall into the pool. But the pool got cleaned every second day. All in all a very lovely house, garden and pool! I would recommand to go there!
I don't think our experience could have been any better. From the very beginning Lydie was prompt, thorough, and very easy to deal with and her mom could not have been more welcoming or friendly. Even though she did not speak English, and we speak very(!) little French, communication was not a problem and we had all questions answered.
The house is exactly as described if not better with plenty of room to move around. There were 7 of us, all female, and we never had an issue. The pool is gorgeous and relaxing; the grounds are well maintained; and the cicadas provide a very warm type of white background noise (once you acclimate). We were delighted to come "home" each night during our stay.
Barbentane is a terrific launching point for day trips all throughout Provence, and Avignon is only minutes away.
I have nothing but positive things to say, and would highly recommend Lydie and her home to anyone thinking of staying in the area!
The house was wonderful - we really enjoyed the pool and the short walk into town. We rode out bikes and visited a few of the nearby wineries.
Eight of us- two families stayed there. Very comfortable holiday villa conveniently located close to Avignon, St remy, lavender fields, etc. Hosts very helpful- Lydie guided us well on getting there, things to do there prior to the trip, and her mother who is the person in charge locally was very warm and welcoming. House is well equipped with lots of pots and pans, linens, etc. We had asked for extra fans to take care of the summer heat which were arranged. There is a large open area outside including a nice pantry and change area by the pool. Great place to stay for families.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
