House in LYON, France, with private swimming-pool (NO MORE AVAILABLE FOR JULY 2020)

 Our 140m2 house is situated in the 9th district of Lyon. Though it is in the city, it's an independent house (not semi-detached), modest but all modern, though it was built in the fifties.
We have 4 bedrooms : 3 with 1 double-bed each, and 1 with a 190cm long single bed. There's also a baby bed available and 2 additional basic convertible sofas. Though there's no air condition, it is well-provided : a fully-equipped kitchen, 2 LCD TV screens with blue-rays and DVDs, a Nintendo WII, HI-FI, etc...
The ground floor is composed of a 65m2 living-room with kitchen, a TV corner and a piano, a bathroom with shower, + the 2 bedrooms with double-beds. On the first floor are the two children rooms (1 double bed, 1 single 190 cm), a bathroom (with a bath this time!) and a TV corner with sofas (1 convertible).
We also have a "real" cave under the house (and we'll save some wine bottles in a corner for you to taste...)
We have a small but very quiet and secluded back-yard garden with a 7x3 private swimming-pool, a trampoline, a fig tree, and 2 wooden decks/terraces with table and chairs, barbecue and deck chairs. You can access both terraces, the back-yard garden and the swimming-pool directly from the living-room.
We do offer a car for exchange, but beware : it is a 100% ELECTRIC Renault ZOE that is designed to drive around the city only (about 100km of autonomy) and is convenient for 4 people. If you want to drive further, you might have to rent a car. Sorry!

Lifestyle

We are a very "urban" family, so we love to live in our city of Lyon, plus of course discovering and visiting other big cities. We like to walk around in towns, to go out to museums, famous places, restaurants, cinemas, etc...Well, nothing very original, in fact.
