A great place to say in all respects  By Robert and Marie-Claire from Yutz (2017)

We had a lovely stay at this charming property in Nyons.  The house is well equipped and very tastefully decorated.  It is a stone's throw from the restaurants and shops of the town centre and yet in a quiet street with virtuallly no traffic.  The terrace is a great spot for drinks, meals or just relaxing.  In addition, Manon and her family are very lovely and welcoming people.  They provided a lot of personal guidance on local attractions, facilities, restaurants etc. which proved to be very reliable.  Nyons itself has all the shops, restaurants and other facilities you might need, but is not a tourist trap and we found the people to be rather friendly.  There are plenty of things to do in the town itself - including an open air swimming complex, a lavender distillery and a number of other attractions, which meant that we did not need to use the car everyday.  At the same time, it is really well situated for day trips either up into the mountains or to historic towns like Orange, Vaison la Romaine and Avignon.  Oh, and the olives are delicious!

 

Top Wohnung im Zentrum Nyons, dennoch sehr ruhig  Von Michael und Ingrid aus Winterbach (2017)

Sehr liebevoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung in der es an nichts fehlt.  Nette Vermieterin, der das Wohlergehen iher Feriengäste am Hertzen liegt.  Ruhige Lage obwohl im Stadtzentrum, da in einer Sackgasse gelegen.

 

Terrific  By Bobbie and Bob from Grimsby (2017)

We recently spent a week in this wonderful apartment. It is located in the lovely very old historic part of town, but once inside the front door, it is as modern as all get out. Beautifully maintained, with most everything you could possibly want and lots more, and extremely clean. The shower stall is probably the best we have seen. We were a little concerned about the parking situation at first (the house does come with a garage, but only a very small car can make the turn into it, and our car was too big) but soon learned that was not an issue. Lots of public parking spots nearby. And to be only steps away from the town center with all the cafes, restaurants, market stalls etc certainly made up for having to walk a few minutes to get our car. And you could drive up to the house to unload or load the car when necessary. Manon and Nick live next door, and were always ready to help with advice about the house, about the area, and any other questions we had for them. However they were never intrusive, and we very much enjoyed having a glass of wine with them and hearing about old Nyons and the development of Le Jas. The outside terrace where we enjoyed most of our meals was a delight. And while Nyons itself is wonderful - the surrounding area made for many great day trips. We can highly recommend this property.

 

Un bon séjour a Nyons  By Sandra and John from Atlanta (2017)

Nous avons passé une bonne semaine dans cette jolie maison au coeur de Nyons. Tout etait propre et la cuisine est particulierement bien équipé. On peux faire tout a pied et retourner a la terrase ensoleillé. Et le paysage Nyonais et la Drome est un rêve. Merci Manon ! John et Sandra

 

An elegant, beautifully designed historic town house  By Pam and John from Sandwich (2017)

Manon's house is exceptional- spacious, top of the range facilities and with a true cook's kitchen! The shady patio was where we spent much of our time when not exploring the market or the restaurants which are within a couple of minutes' walk. The old town, river and hills beyond the lovely town of Nyons were all walkable from the house. Manon and Nick made us very welcome with suggestions and we have already made plans to visit again next year!

 

Superbe séjour  Par Estelle et Philippe de Ouistreham (2017)

Une semaine dépaysante dans un gîte décoré avec goût. On sent tout le soin apporté au Jas du Pontias par Manon et Nicholas pour que les visiteurs se sentent comme chez eux. Leurs petites attentions et la convivialité contribuent à nous faire passer un séjour agréable dans cette très belle maison. Merci encore à eux deux. Nous reviendrons, c'est certain.

 

Le paradis en Provence  Par Cathy et Bernard de Fontenay sous Bois (2017)

Accueil chaleureux, petite maison très coquette, super bien équipée et dėcorėe avec beaucoup de goût. Nous avons séjourné la semaine dernière et avons bénéficié d'un ciel bleu de Provence chaque jour, ce qui nous a permis de prendre tous nos repas sur la jolie terrasse baignée de soleil sous la tonelle de glycine, que du bonheur!!!! Manon et Nicholas sont des hôtes charmants et très chaleureux que nous espérons revoir très vite. Encore merci à vous deux pour cet excellent séjour.

 

Une maison où il fait bon vivre  Par Dominique et Michel de Toernich (2017)

Un petit séjour improvisé, pour nous sortir de notre quotidien, nous a amené à choisir cette superbe petite maison. Chaleureuse à souhait et idéalement située, elle nous a ravis! A l'image de ses propriétaires, Manon et Nicolas, elle est accueillante et incite au calme, à la détente et au bonheur de se ressourcer.
Merci à vous, Manon, Nicolas et Louis pour ces 4 jours magnifiques, vos précieux conseils de randonnées, votre accueil formidable et ces instants "magiques " passés en votre compagnie.

 

Le Jas du bonheur  Par Dominique et Christian de St Bris le Vineux (2017)

Quel bonheur !  Quelle douceur !  Quel accueil !  Nous avons eu l'impression d'être chez nous dès notre arrivée dans un gîte pensé et cosy à tout point de vue avec Manon et Nicholas, discrets, tout en restant disponibles et à l'écoute de leurs hôtes.  Merci à vous Manon, Nicholas et à--- Louis, très attachant.  Une petite caresse à Silver Shadow !

 

Our all time favourite holiday rental, and there have been many!  By Ron and Angela from Honolulu (2016)

We stayed in this beautiful, comfortable and very clean house for a month in May/June. The house has a wonderful kitchen with everything you could possibly desire. The bathrooms were exceptionally nice, one with a tub and one with wonderful shower. The house is in the middle of the old town near shops, restaurants, the market, but it is on a very quiet street. Manon and Nicholas were very hospitable, but not intrusive and we enjoyed getting to know them. There is a lot of good walking in the area and interesting towns to discover a little further afield. The food is wonderful! We recommend Le Charette Bleu just outside town. In the spring we had no difficulty finding parking in town. We highly recommend both the house and the town of Nyons. Thank you Manon.

 

A perfect place for a sejour in sunny Nyons  By Maggie from London (2016)

This was my second holiday in this lovely house. I was not disappointed. The house is perfect, my hosts were more than helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely return next year!

 

A beautiful home - well located  By Lynda from Edmonton (2016)

This well-located home is an amazing property. The extremely well equipped kitchen is the dream of all cooks! The home is very clean. The 2 bathrooms are top of the line. The beds were comfy. We loved being in the old section of town which is very close to all the restaurants and shops. Manon was very knowledgeable and friendly....gave excellent info about the area and things to see. I definitely recommend this site and would stay again in a heartbeat.

 

Absolutely perfect place to stay  By Allyson from San Francisco (2016)

Manon has created a beautiful, comfortable home away from home that wants for nothing. The apartment is spotless and is beautifully designed with a kitchen equipped to meet the need of every cook or chef. My mom, sister-in-law and I spent a week here in September and found it very hard to leave the charms of Nyons and our lovely apartment. We would return in a heart beat and certainly on a Thursday morning in time to enjoy the town's fabulous market. Merci! A bientôt! A

 

A lovely hide-away  By Caroline from York (2016)

The online photographs probably don't do justice to this lovely apartment. Beautifully well equipped with top of the range kitchen items including dishwasher! The apartment has been designed and specified by the owner and everything has been carefully thought about and it was sparklingly clean when we arrived. Manon greeted us on arrival and was just next door if we needed anything but was not at all intrusive. An invitation for a glass of wine was gratefully accepted and it was lovely to get to know both Manon and Nick a little. Just a two minute walk gets you to morning croissants or lunchtime ice creams and a selection of good restaurants only another couple of minutes. There is great walking in the area but mostly, it being very hot while we were there, we relaxed on the terrace and played lots of games of Yanif! There is swimming in local rivers and also at the towns new Water Centre but it has strange opening hours and we missed it! There is a lavender still in the centre of town so the whole town has a wonderful aroma! I would definitely recommend this for a couple or two couples. We came with my daughter and husband and, as we were paying, we got the good bed and they got the sofa bed! (they said it was comfortable though!) Two bathrooms ensures privacy and no waiting around for the shower.

 

Dejlig ferie i Le Jas du Pontias  Af Karin og Soren fra Frederikssund (2016)

I juni og juli 2016 tilbragte vi tre dejlige uger i ”Le Jas du Pontias” lige midt i hyggelige og charmerende Nyons.  Vi blev modtaget af Manon og Nicholas, som viste sig at være uhyre hyggelige og spændende mennesker at tale med og under hele vores ophold var de meget hjælpsomme med idéer og gode råd – på den gode diskrete måde.  Huset er rummeligt og velindrettet og meget velholdt og rent, og det blev gjort perfekt rent en gang om ugen, mens vi var der.  Køkkenet er stort og meget veludstyret. Det er inspirerende at komme med torvets mange gode fødevarer hertil og tilberede dem. Ligeledes var stue og soveværelse originalt indrettet og meget hyggelige at opholde sig i – kort sagt et stort og rigtigt dejligt hus med en stor, hyggelig terrasse, hvor der både var sol og skygge.  Huset ligger midt i middelalderbyen tæt på butikker og restaurationer, og alligevel er den smalle gade stille og rolig og præget af de fastboendes dagligdag.  Bestemt et hus, som vi gerne kommer tilbage til – også gerne i længere tid.  Tak til Manon og Nicholas for at skabe den perfekte ramme til en dejlig ferie i skønne Provence.

 

Een bijzondere week in Le Jas  Door Jackelien en Olaf uit Lage Zwaluwe (2016)

Een huis huren In het centrum van Nyons. Het was een gok die geweldig uitpakte. Eerdere ervaringen met het huren van een huis van iemand die je niet kent heeft ons sceptisch gemaakt. Altijd weer afwachten wat je aantreft. 'Le Jas' van eigenares Manon van der Laan was een verademing. Zeer smaakvol ingericht, aan alles gedacht. Ook aan zaken die je niet verwacht. Ze heeft zich kennelijk goed verplaatst in de beleving van haar gasten. Een plekje voor fijnproevers, die houden van subtiliteiten en kokkerellen in een geweldige eetkeuken met Provençaalse ingrediënten van de markt om de hoek. Wij hebben een onvergetelijke week gehad. Komen zeker terug! Bedankt Manon, en niet te vergeten je bijzondere partner Nicholas.
 
Ravissante maison, situation exceptionnelle  Par Florence et Luc de Paris (2016)
Nous avons passé en couple une semaine dans cette très jolie maison ancienne, parfaitement refaite avec un goût très sur, en tirant complètement parti de son originalité. Equipement au top (quelle cuisine ! un bonheur)... De plus la situation est parfaite, au coeur de la vieille ville, à qq pas de la rue ou se trouvent les restaurants sympas, et de la magnifique place des arcades. Manon et Nicholas sont charmants , disponibles pour tout renseignement mais très discrets. Nous recommendons vivement cette maison si comme nous, vous aimez les locations de charme ayant une "âme". La Drôme, faut-il le préciser, est une région magnifique !
 
Wunderschöner Urlaub im Jas du Pontias  Von Dorothe und Wolfram aus Pittenhart-Oberbrunn (2015)
Dieser Urlaub wird sicher auch wegen der besonders schönen Unterkunft in bester Erinnerung bleiben.  Die Wohnung auf 2 Etagen wurde sofort bei der Ankunft als sehr wohltuend empfunden: großzügig, geschmackvoll, modern und auch sehr gemütlich; die Küche ist überdurchschnittlich ausgestattet.  Auch die überall gegenwärtige Kunst in Form von guten Bildern trägt sehr zum Wohlbefinden bei.  Das kleine und feine Schlafzimmer, wunderbar!  Mit Manon´s Plattensammlung wurden die Abende vor dem offenen Kamin im Gewölberaum immer länger.  Unser besonderer Dank gilt Manon und Nicolas für ihre herzliche und unkomplizierte Gastfreundschaft.  Sie versorgten uns auch mit allen nötigen Informationen bestens.  Wir kommen gerne wieder.
 
A happy week in a lovely house By Maggie from London (2015)
I know Nyons pretty well but this is the first time that I stayed in Le Jas - it won't be my last. Manon, Nicholas and Louis were very welcoming and helpful. The house was comfortable and extremely well equipped. As it is situated in the centre of Nyons everything you could possibly want is nearby. I'll be back!
 
Wonderful townhouse in a lovely area  By Duncan from Cambridge (2015)
We (family of three) stayed here for a week in August 2015. We were met by the owners who lived nearby. They were helpful and informative. The townhouse itself is beautiful. The pictures do not do justice to the stunningly equipped kitchen and wonderful house which has been recently renovated to the highest standard and yet retains the most warm and friendly feel to it. There is everything on your doorstep in Nyons -shops, restaurants and a fantastic village pool. Walks and stunning bike rides from the doorstep. Any cyclists will be pleased to know there is a secure garage under the property as well. Can't wait to go back!

 

Très belle location  Par Anna de Lyon (2015)

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans cette location très agréable, tout confort, aménagée avec goût, conforme aux photos et à la description. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil chaleureux de sa propriétaire Manon. Nous recommandons donc cette jolie location.

 

Tout simplement parfait !  Par Florence, Stéphane, Antonin & Thibault de Paris (2015)

La location de vacances parfaite ! La maison a beaucoup de charme, est très bien équipée et très propre. Manon, Nicholas et Louis sont des hôtes extrêmement sympathiques et accueillants dans une région authentique. Nous avons hâte de pouvoir y revenir et partagerons avec plaisir cette adresse avec famille et amis. C'est une des meilleures locations de vacances que nous ayons eue. Merci encore à nos hôtes !

 

Spacious, stylish and spotless.  By Deborah from Edinburgh (2015)

Spacious, stylish and spotless. Ideal for 4 people. Lots of light and space and 2 rather luxurious bathing facilities. The vaulted room is a really cozy and comfortable sleeping space. Kitchen is very well equipped and the terrace is a nice sunny spot (even in March) to sit and read a book. Plenty to do and see in and around Nyons. Owners very welcoming. We could have happily stayed a month here.

 

Location de charme  Par Chantal de Millery (2015)

Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve dans cette jolie location. Rien ne manque : cuisine très fonctionnelle, salon et chambre décorés avec goût, le tout très cosy. Propreté impeccable. A ceci s'ajoute un emplacement idéal dans le vieux centre ville, où se côtoient de nombreux restaurants. Les propriétaires sont charmants et très à l'écoute. Nous y retournerons sans hésiter ! Et Nyons est une si jolie ville !
