What about days outdoors and cosy evenings by the wood fire? Come enjoy the Jas du Pontias in Nyons with restaurants and a market all year around.

The Jas is located at ideally with restaurants, shops and hiking trails into the Drome Mountains at walking distance from the house.

Come enjoy the Jas du Pontias in Nyons with restaurants and a market all year around. Original, elegant and comfortable townhouse, residential street, heart of Nyons, Drome, Rhone-Alpes, France. The Jas is located at ideally with restaurants, shops and hiking trails into the Drome Mountains at walking distance from the house. The Jas du Pontias, 85m2, was once a little farm on the edge of the medieval town. Today, we are part of a residential street in the heart of Nyons, a lively town with 7000 people. Downstairs on street level, where the beasts used to live, you’ll find a garage and a cellar with washing/drying facilities. One flight up is the large terrace, the kitchen/dining room with my cookbook collection and its battery of pots hung against glowing-beige walls. Beyond, you will find the vaulted lounge alias first bedroom with an open fireplace. Adjacent to the lounge with its plastered vault, an elegant black and white bathroom was created with a generous shower and a stylish sink. There is also an independent WC on this level. Mostly authentic pieces of art, with a few reproductions, are scattered over the walls. On the next level up, where the hay used to be stacked, you’ll find the second bedroom, cozy and forest-green under the roof, with its en-suite bathroom, complete with quality gear: bath, bidet, sink and WC. The stairway and hall are brightly lit by natural light through the roof window and its stark-white walls host more of my art collection. Our street is a residential cul-de-sac street. Our area is called la Drôme Provençale – the south of the Drôme Department and the north of Provence, located in the South-East of France. You will bathe in the delicious microclimate of Nyons, a small, picturesque and animated town at the foot of the Drôme Mountains. The house is cool in summer and cozy in winter. In the heart of town, you will stay right next to a good choice of restaurants and shops. Meanwhile, vast nature is to be found at walking distance. (There is a good collection of detailed walking maps available to you.) In case of a rare rainy day, you can borrow our extended collection of board games and cards and for evenings an interesting collection of auteur films on DVD is at your disposal. The spacious kitchen offers semi-professional equipment, including many cookbooks. I make sure you'll find some kitchen basics when you arrive. If need be, you can give me a short shopping-list for your first night's meal.More

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...
Getting around
A car is not necessary for enjoying life in Nyons: There are several hiking trails accessible directy from the house. In the center of town, there are many restaurants and a choice of bakers and grocery stores, boutiques and pharmacies. All at walking distance from the Jas. Meanwhile, you will be using your car if you want to do a lot of sightseeing and find the full spectrum of hiking trails.
