Nyons - Vaison-la-Romaine - Nyons

Based on the diary I have with me, we have been here in Nyons prior to 2006. Right now I don't know exactly when but in any case it hasn't changed much. We found a very nice hotel, it is called  une autre maison...  meaning that it is different. E.g. the rooms don't have numbers, they have names. Ours is Les Amis or The Friends. Also the breakfast is excellent. Near the hotel parking lot we saw this beautiful pre-WW2 Citroën. It is called the  Traction Avant or the front wheel drive.
 Since the weekly market here in Nyons is on Thursday, we decided to go to nearby Vaison-la-Romaine. It is the same kind of market but on a different day. If you don't like to hear Dutch during your holiday, don't go there! It seems every Dutch tourist in the Drome is showing up in Vaison. In any case if you like French sausages, olives, savon de Marseilles or linen from the Provence, Vaison is the place to be.


  1. Nice to read your French adventures. Must be wonderful to have time and means to do all those things. Do you have photo's from these travels somewhere on internet to view? I like this old Citroen, have been inside one as a passenger once.
    Been in VAR myself many years ago and loved it.

    I am a bit hesitant about displaying all my pictures for everyone to see. I'm sure you understand :-) But i'll think about it. Good to hear from you again!
