Lyon is the 3rd biggest city in France after Paris and Marseille, and is the gastronomic capital of the country. Being less than 2 hours drive from the world’s largest linked ski area and Geneva, 2 hours by train from the sea, less than 2 hours by train from Paris and 30 minutes from the Beaujolais and Bourgogne wine areas, the geographical position of the city is envied by its more illustrious rivals. Indeed, voted “Best Weekend Destination” in the European Travel Awards in September 2016, Lyon has much to offer, from its UNESCO World Heritage classed old town and Roman ruins to its buzzing restaurant scene, from its world class festivals and spectacular painted walls to the Parc de la Tête d’Or, the biggest urban park in France. A fast-growing business centre and student city, Lyon also offers guaranteed revenues to investors and much more value for money than other major European cities: one million euros can buy 180m² in the best areas of Lyon, compared to only 33m² in London, 56m² in Geneva and 82m² in Paris.
I first experienced France back in 1995 when on an ERASMUS exchange programme in Amiens in the North of France. I loved the way of life so much I came back to live as soon as possible after finishing my studies, arriving in Paris in 1998, where I met my future wife and stayed until 2005. After living in picturesque Strasbourg for a couple of years, we moved to Lyon in 2007, which is a good compromise between a small, cute town and a large, dynamic city. We live in the centre and walk everywhere. I enjoy jogging by the Rhone river passing swans and ducks on the way to the park where I often see squirrels; Lyon is a beautiful place to live, with a nice blend of nature and dynamic urban development. Having been a business travel agent for international sports events for 9 years, I’ve become used to dealing with accommodation and the importance of their location as well as maintaining high levels of customer service. I look forward to helping you find the property of your dreams in the city of the lights.View French-Alps Information Homepage
