Things to Do

In the house is a binder with suggestions for outings in the area, both in the Drôme and in the Vaucluse.  In it you will also find restaurant and winery recommendations (Manon worked in wine for thirteen years).  Our collection of hiking maps and various board games are at your disposal, as is our collection of DVDs.

Two videos to give you a taste of Nyons and the surrounding Drôme Mountains:
