About Joan Tyson
Hi, my name is Jo and I have a long association with France, starting with coming here for holidays in the 1980's. I have owned two properties here. When I was teaching I came to France for my holidays and I lived here for a while when my son was younger, moving back to London in 1998. I came back to France to live in this house when my son went to University. I'm from South London originally, but for many years have been drawn back to my parent's roots in East London. I now spend time between London and France.
Joan Tyson purchased this house in 2001
Why Joan Tyson chose Nyons
I chose this house because it is in a beautiful place and the house itself had the space that I wanted both for living and working, as I am a yoga teacher and a shiatsu practitioner. My previous house had been rather small and dark, a typical village house. Whereas this one had great potential with large rooms and open space to the South. The view from my sitting room and terrace is amazing whatever the season. I have established a lovely garden and am also able to grow a few vegetables, though it is hardly necessary, as the produce available in this region is superb.
What makes this house unique
My house was built in 1729, but even so it has a very contemporary feel to it. I have renovated it in a way that has kept the beauty of the old doors and windows, but I have added my own personal style; sometimes retro, sometimes ethnic. I have visited India and Africa and the decor bears witness to this.
