4 bedrooms apartment in downtown Lyon + easy to visit countryside with our car - Central but calm area - Open to all destinations !

Hi, Our vast apartment is located in downtown Lyon, in the Croix Rousse neighborhood, very central but in a very quiet area (meals on the balcony are a daily pleasure !). We are a couple with two children (a son aged 18 and a daughter of 10).

Our apartment of 120 m2 has 4 bedrooms: three rooms with a king (190*220) or queen size bed (140*200) and one bedroom with two single beds, two bathrooms and two toilets. There is a balcony and a garage. It's ideal for a family of 5 with teenagers or a group of up to 8 friends.

The area is known for its shops, its village atmosphere and its many artists, artisans (arty shops, chocolate, decoration, clothes...), bars, restaurants and its famous market which takes place several mornings a week. A ten minutes walk and you will be in Lyon's largest park (Parc de la tete d'or).

Lyon is a very charming city particularly known for its UNESCO area (a large renaissance area - https://tinyurl.com/yxsm26z5 - its two roman theaters, the lightning of its monuments at night, its gastronomy with plenty of Michelin star restaurants.

Kids: plenty of activities for kids and parents : a very large beach and sailing area (Miribel), many swimming pools (Etoile d'alaï, aqualibi), walibi attraction parc (walibi.fr), lego starwars miniworld, exalto (trampolines, escape game, laser, air battle games...), France Adventures, bric4kids, centrekapla, bubblebump, climbing (azium), we ride (biking). Most museums have special sessions in english for kids of different ages : Musée des confluences, Lugdunum (roman museam), contemporary art (yes yes kids love it), planetarium, museum of puppets, museum of cinema, aquarium, two operas houses with shows for kids, many cooking classes with parents (lelabodelo.com, ogourmandisedemary.com...). And not far away : provence perfume sessions for kids (distillerie-bleu-provoence.com), adventure walking in historical places (Perouge, cluny-abbaye, chateau-de-brancion), crocodile farm... ) If you wish we shall prepare a nice program adapted to the age of you children and teens.

It's very easy to drive away from the city, to the countryside ; There is . The Alps or Provence are a couple of hours drive away and we can leave you our car if needed.
