A nice house near Lyons

Our home is a recent, sunny, comfortable,3 bedroom house. It is situated in a quiet estate in the center of a pleasant, residential village about 15 kms from Lyons. It is 140 sq. meters. It consists of a fully equipped kitchen, utility room, a dining-room and sitting-room, a study and a bedroom downstairs (double bed) , two bedrooms upstairs, one with a double bed and one with a single bed and a baby cot, plus one bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. II has all the modern conveniences. We often have our grandchildren with us so there are toys and basic baby equipment.

It also has a garden with tomatoes and other summer vegetables that you'll be welcome to eat if you wish to. There are two terraces, one facing full south (too hot in the summer) and one north east that we use more often. We usually park one car in the garage, the other, bigger one sleeps outside.

Our village is mostly a residential one. It has enough shops and services for everyday use, 5 doctors, a dentist's, a chemist's, two banks, a big supermarket outside the village. Our house is 5 mns from the center on foot and 100m from the village park. There's a well-equipped sports ground and a number of walks in the surrounding countryside,.

Lyon, the second biggest city in France, is about a 30 mn drive, depending on the traffic, which is always heavy, but in fact we often use the tube to go to the city center. The nearest metro station is 15 mns from Chaponnay.

Lyon has interesting Roman monuments and a whole medieval district. There's a rich cultural life, great museums and a large number of shops, cafés and pubs. The city has a reputation for gastronomy and boasts a large number of restaurants, some of them really excellent.

Another city of interest is Vienne, 15kms south of our village, with great Roman and Renaissance heritage. We also live near famous wine areas like Beaujolais (1h) and Côte-Rôtie (30 mns).

Other interesting sites are les Dombes, a lake area about one hour from Chaponnay, and the Alps are are about 1h30 away, Grenoble only 1h. There is also another mountain called "Le Pilat", about 45 mns away, with pleasant hiking paths. Annecy and its lake is 2 hrs away. A smaller, very clean and warm lake is Aiguebelette, 1h away. The Mediterranean sea and Marseilles are 3 hrs away.

In short, I think our village, though quiet and unremarkable, is pleasant and centrally situated to visit Lyons, Vienne and other cities as well as the wine areas and the mountain areas.

Lyons international airport is 30 mns away and the A46 motorway 3kms from our house.

Circa la nostra famiglia

We are retired teachers : André, 70, former PE teacher, and Jacqueline, 68, former English teacher.

We have two grown-up children, Floriane, 40, Nicolas, 37, and five grandchildren.

We did 3 home exchanges a long time ago, before the age of the internet!) and they all went well. We did 2 in Britain, in 1988 and 1995, and one in Canada in 2005. We are now retired and after years of caravan holidaying we got back to home exchanging again, as we found it a very good experience, and we had a successful exchange in 2019.

We like sight-seeing and do quite a lot of hiking. Jacqueline is interested in music and literature. We are rather quiet but we love meeting people and talking about the country we are visiting.

Stile di vita

Our grown-up children, Floriane, 40 and Nicolas, 37, have their own family. We spend quite a lot of time looking after our grandchildren.

We also like hiking, reading, travelling, and we do yoga and music. We are also involved in an association for the deaf. André likes gardening and we have a small garden.
