- no wall between "bathroom" and bedroom part.
- ancient bathtub without enamel on the inside!! Very unhygienic!!
- fabric bathtub curtain surrounding the bathtub in the middle of the "bathroom" part. How hygienic is that!!!
- Toilet behind another fabric curtain to the right of the bathtub and the washbasin to the left of the bathtub. Horrible and unhygienic
- garden completely overgrown, so you had to push back the shrubs to be able to walk on the gravel path leading to the hotel!!!
- pool not maintained - water green, i.e. not possible to have a dip if you want to stay well
- no reception in the hotel, just a very basic small wooden table in the corner of the kitchen part
- no a la carte restaurant, just today's menu and we were not welcome to dine as we had not prebooked!! And a 3-course menu at Euros 44. Extremely excessive!!!!
- tiles loose in the corridor upstairs, tripping hazard
Une Autre Maison is a fabulous hotel, a short stroll from the centre of the delightful village of Nyons. There is a free car park behind the hotel and we had no problem finding a space. Check in was welcoming and friendly, and a couple of blokes who were either friends of the owners or were just having a drink, insisted on grabbing our bags and taking them up to our room.
The whole hotel is decorated in a wonderfully rustic, Provençal style and our room (Prune) was delightful. Although relatively compact it had plenty of wardrobe space as well as a safe, a fridge and very necessary air conditioning. The en-suite was actually in the room, with modesty preserved by a nice, curved partition. The room is very well designed and the overall effect is homely and rather charming.
The gardens here are also lovely with lots of little shady nooks and crannies in which to sit with a book to enjoy a quiet hour. There is also a swimming pool and, although we didn’t use it, the pool and surrounding area are also very nice.
Breakfast was a very pleasant affair taken on the terrace, and we had the added bonus of meeting fellow Scots and having an enjoyable chat. Many previous reviewers have commented that at 15 Euros a head the breakfast is a little overpriced and, reluctantly, I have to agree. It wouldn’t take much to improve it and for that price I would have expected some local cheese and cold meat in addition to jam.
The bottom line however is that this is a truly lovely hotel. Whenever we set off on new journeys I often comment that I hope to find a new “gem” of a place to which we will return. Une Autre Maison in the delightful village of Nyons is definitely such a place and we look forward to coming again for a longer stay.
We always stop here on our way to the house we rent in Provence for the month of October. It is a very friendly and accommodating place with very comfortable rooms, a friendly chef who will tell you about what he has prepared, and friendly staff including the owners. The only small problem is the hand showers in the tub are a little difficult to use without getting water in other places. The garden is beautiful and sleeping with the window open with cool air coming in the bedroom and no noise is very soothing. We would definitely recommend Une Autre Maison.
We’d taken the new ferry from Mallorca to Toulon and had to push on to get to Nyons in time for dinner. We’re glad we did. This is a lovely intimate hotel in an old townhouse with a walled garden and terrace leading onto a small square handy for parking.
Our room on the top floor overlooked the gardens with rooftops, spires and the hills beyond. Limed floors, cool colours and an ensuite built as a semi-open bathroom made it individual, comfortable and quiet.
Set menu dinner served on the terrace was terrific - fresh local ingredients thoughtfully prepared and served with a smile. Breakfast was the same with fresh fruits, bread and local jams.
Definitely a stop worth making. And Nyons has an intriguing old centre and makes its own famous olive oils as a bonus.
We stayed for one night. The hotel is lovely. The decor is very original. Comfy bed and clean room. There is a nice looking garden outside but the weather was too cold to enjoy it. It is only a short walk from the centre.
Breakfast (continental) was good but a bit pricey at €15 each.
