Vacation rentals in Lyon

An apartment high above the Rhône

Formerly founded as a Roman administrative centre, Lyon is one of the oldest cities in France. Those who want to indulge in the charm of the metropolis at the Rhône and the Saône are best accommodated in a apartment in the centre of the city. The cosy apartments along both banks of the Rhône are particularly beautifully situated, where you can watch the tranquil hustle and bustle on the river and on the lakeside promenade with a cup of café au lait from your balcony. Apartments and apartments in the nearby Parc de la Tete d'Or are also popular. The locals like to visit the Parc de la Tete d'Or to recharge their batteries.

Elegant living on the edge of town

If you prefer not to pitch your tents directly in the epicentre of the lively city, we recommend that you move into a vacation rental in the suburbs on the outskirts of Lyon. You will find what you are looking for both in the north along the Saône and in the northeast near the Grad Parc Miribel Jonage, where you will find everything from a small cozy vacation rental to a stately villa with garden, sauna and other amenities to relax your heart on holiday.

Travelers and Activities

Lyon for culture enthusiasts

If there is such a thing as a cultural capital in France, Lyon is certainly a hot candidate for this title alongside Paris. With over 30 museums such as the Musée de Confluentes, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, and with its churches, cathedrals and ancient sites, Lyon offers countless hot spots for culture lovers. However, the city is famous above all for its cinemas, theatres and the large opera house, which is also considered a masterpiece of architecture.

Lyon for connoisseurs

The fine Lyon cuisine is so multifaceted that you would need several holidays to discover all the culinary delights. Accordingly, you are free to choose whether you want to cook your own French-style food in your vacation rental or go for a meal in one of the fabulous restaurants. Plenty of variety is guaranteed in any case. At this point, however, you are spoilt for choice; nowhere in France is the density of restaurants as high as in Lyon. The spectrum ranges from classic restaurants to star cuisine á la Paul Bocuse in the suburb of Collonges au Mont d'Or. A secret tip, however, is to visit a traditional Bouchon Lyonnais, where dishes such as quenelles and salad Lyonais are served along with finely prepared offal.

Things to know

Best travel time for Lyon

Lyon owes its temperate climate to its location in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and its proximity to the foothills of the Alps. While summers are usually warm and dry, winter and autumn are cool and wet. The best time to explore the city's attractions is therefore during the summer months of June to September, which are characterised by pleasant temperatures of up to 26 degrees Celsius and only seven rainy days a month.

Regular events

Despite the cool temperatures, Lyon is also worth a trip in winter, as every year in December, the city at the Rhône attracts visitors with a festival of lights that lasts several days. State-of-the-art lighting technology transforms the city's monuments into true works of art, ensuring open mouths year after year. Fortunately, at this time it is also much easier to get an apartment. No less interesting, in addition to the regular Open Monument Day and the Lyon Comic Festival, is the Lyon Free Bike mountain bike race held every year in mid-September, where daring cyclists race at breakneck speed over cobblestones, bridges, squares and stairs. With a bit of luck you can watch the fast-paced action from a box seat on the balcony of your holiday apartment.

With Claudius, Caracalla and the temporary counter-emperor Clodius Albinus, three Roman emperors were born in Lyon.

Top 5 travel tips

Pont Wilson
Pont Wilson
1st Musée Confluentes

Situated on the Presqu'île peninsula at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, the Musée Confluentes is in itself a work of art made of glass and steel that floats above the water like a cloud of crystal. What is even more interesting, however, is what it has to offer inside, especially since there are extensive collections on the history of the world, the web of life and the themes of death and the afterlife.

2. On the tracks of modern film

If you have always wanted to learn about the making of the film, the Lumiére Institute should be at the top of your list of places to visit. At this historical location, the Lumiére brothers designed the first cinematograph, with which they shot the first film right next door. In the large auditorium of the Institut Lumiére, the legacy of the inventors of film is preserved by showing some of their productions alongside various classics of film history.

3rd labyrinth in the middle of the city

If you liked to play the classic board game "The Crazy Labyrinth" as a child, you will like this real maze. The so-called Traboule, which are located in the Croix Rousse and Vieux Lyon districts, are intertwined connecting corridors, stairwells and corridors that are connected to each other over an entire district like a large network but cannot be seen from the outside. Explore this network, for which not even the Lyon authorities have a map and which the Resistance already used during the Second World War to operate out of secret. Maybe you'll find a secret passage to your apartment?

4. The sacred landmark of the Lyons

The Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière is the landmark of Lyon and is located exactly where the Trajans Forum stood in ancient times. The cathedral dates back to the great plague epidemic in 1643, when the citizens of Lyon begged the Virgin Mary to spare the city. When this actually happened, the construction of the cathedral began, which is characterized by its richly painted ceilings and interior walls.

5. Discover Lyons little secrets

In Vieux Lyon, the old town, it seems as if time has stood still in the Renaissance. Narrow lanes run through the roughly paved gorges of houses, cosy cafés invite you to visit them and various merchants offer their goods for sale in the old lanes. Especially if you want to discover the culinary diversity of Lyon and buy a souvenir or two, there is no way around the Old Town, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
