Lyon is France's second largest metropolitan area. Steeped in over two millenia of history, it is a thriving, exciting modern European metropolis. Its location is unique, astride two major rivers, Rhone and Saone, two famous hills, Fourviere and Croix-Rousse, and surrounded by the picturesque Monts d'Or. It offers world-class museums, among them Musee des Beaux-Arts, Musee des Tissus, Musee de Gadagne (city history and puppets of the world). Theaters, music venues (classical and popular), a summer festival in the two Roman theaters, fascinating architecture spanning many centuries, luxury boutiques. Plus what Lyon is famous for around the world: gastronomy! With over a thousand restaurants, from glorious to humble, in the French tradition or bringing the flavors of far-away cultures, visitors will invariably be rewarded with memorable meals. The apartment is ideally located to explore the region: wine villages of Beaujolais and Rhone Valley, medieval Perouges, and the Alps nearby.
Other Activities: City shopping; restaurants; world-class museums; architecture; history
Year Purchased: 2017
About the owner: I was born, raised and educated in Lyon. I now live in the western United States but return to Lyon as often as I can to keep in touch with family and friends. I love this beautiful city.
Why the Owner Chose Part Dieu - Bir Hakeim, Lyon, France:
I recently bought the apartment to spend more time in my home city. The building is located in the heart of the neighborhood where I grew up. My old high school (lycee) is two blocks away. From the north balcony, one can see the church where I made my first holy communion and the city hall where I was married (many years ago).
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Besides the super-convenient location of the apartment near everything in Lyon, what makes my heart rejoice upon opening the front door is the incredible view of the rooftops and monuments, and the sense of space and freedom standing on either of the balconies -- in the center of the city and yet near the sky. Having both a North and South large balconies lets one choose which side to sit out according to the seasons.
