Large townhouse from 1924 carefully renovated in 2022. Ideal for a large family or for two couples with children.

On the ground floor there is a large laundry mud room, a dining kitchen for 6, a living room with dining room for 10, complete with a log stove for the colder months. The living room opens onto a patio where you can enjoy hot days in the shade of a large olive tree.

Upstairs there is a large bathroom with shower + bath, then 4 bedrooms: 1 master bedroom with a 160 cm bed (queen) + a baby cot, 1 kid bedroom with a single bed (additional mattresses if necessary), 1 kid bedroom with bunk beds, and 1 bedroom which serves as a home cinema lounge with a 140 cm (double) sofa bed. The configuration can be adjusted if needed.

Many toys and basic baby equipment (travel cot, bath, high chair, observation chair, etc.)

High speed WIFI (I work from home). No TV (we have a projector with Netflix/Fire TV)

Negociable: we can lend cargo bike (Urban Arrow) for 3 children (+ maxi-cosi), long tail bike (Tern GSD) for 2 children, other bikes or our 7-seater car.
Our cleaning lady and our cook can continue to come if you wish.

Several bus lines 2 min walk away, 15 min walk from the Gratte-Ciel district with its metro and shops. By bike, you are in the city center in 15 min, or at the Parc de la Tête d'Or in less than 10 minutes. Easy and free car parking in the street.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Lyon has won 2022 World’s Tourism leading emergent destination and 2nd best urban destination ! Despite being France’s third-largest city, the country’s gastronomical capital, and home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Lyon tends to fly under the radar and you won’t find crowds of tourists here. A great opportunity to experience the city as a local. Explore our famous "traboules" passageways or our medieval neighbourhood, have lunch at one of our (many!) fine dining or local restaurant, walk (or bike) along the river bank from the Opera to the Parc de la Tete d’Or.

Lyon airport (LYS) can be easily reached too, as is Paris airport (CDG), a direct 2h train ride away. By train, Marseille (beach) is 1h40 away and Lille 3h away. You’re also 1h30 away from the ski slopes, 1h away from Burgundy. Several lakes are 1h car ride away. A perfect base to explore France!
