Interaction with guests
We live next door to the Jas, at N19, in a similar house (each house is perfectly independent). You can pick up the keys from us and we will show you around the house at your arrival. We will indicate free parking in the neigborhood if your car doesn't turn into the garage. If you have any questions about the house and its equipment, or about the town or the region, we are available during your stay. You will find plenty documentation about the area in the house and I made a list of interesting daytrips from Nyons. There are also detailed hiking maps for your use.

About the neighborhood
A big Provençal market takes place every Thursday morning in Nyons throughout the year. In season, a smaller market is added every Sunday morning.

On a pedestrian street parallel to our street, you will find a collection of restaurants with their terraces for different tastes and budgets. A few more are to be found on the beautiful Place des Arcades, classified historic monument, at 2 minutes from the house. The town has several supermarkets, banks, and pharmacies, wine stores and cooperatives selling local produce, such as olives and olive oil.

Nyons is quaint and great for an evening stroll, with its mediaeval quarters and Romanesque bridge. Our street is located right in the middle of these.

You can also visit Dieulefit (pottery), Grignan (Château de Mme de Sévigné) and Taul...

How to get there

Railway: Montélimar: 31.1 mi
The close airports for access to the Nyons include Nîmes, Marseille and Montpellier. You can also fly into Lyon, Béziers or Grenoble, a bit further away. We recommend train travel; the TGV to Valence or Avignon, with connecting local trains and even a bus, which will take you to the center of Nyons. It is not essential to have a car here, as you can do shopping and hiking directly from the house. However, if you wish to visit the many sites of interest in the area, you will need wheels.


Nyons is a 40 minute drive from the A7 motorway at Montélimar Sud and about the same distance to Orange Sud. It is a 1 hour and 15 minute drive from Avignon. We are at 20 minutes from Vaison la Romaine. Many places of interest can be found at less than 1 hour's drive from Le Jas du P...
