Experience coliving in Lyon! 



Coliving is a way of living that has been spreading in France for a few years. Coming from the United States, it straddles the line between shared accommodation and aparthotels. More advantageous than the aparthotel, but often less than shared accommodation, co-living generally offers an individual living space (a bedroom and a bathroom, sometimes a kitchen) and collective spaces and services (living rooms, coworking , gym, library, laundry, internet, streaming platforms, etc.). It is also organized around common values ​​and interests (ecology, way of life, professional activity, etc.). 



Lyon, at the junction of the Rhône and the Saône


Lyon has 1.3 million inhabitants on 55,000 hectares. Second largest agglomeration in France, it is geographically perfectly located halfway between the sea and the mountains, between Northern and Southern Europe. The city, located on the Rhône, is a point of meetings and exchanges due to its location, for many tourists.

It is thus a real European metropolis, in many respects, in addition to being the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region. Lyon attracts by its geographical position, its dynamism and its economy. It is today the second French student city after Paris. Real estate prices are high and still rising!

It is a peninsula located between two dominant hills, Fourvière and Croix-Rousse. Two rivers cross it, the Rhône and the Saône. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the architecture that dominates the city of Lyon, and particularly in the old Lyon district, deserves special attention. It should be noted that the architecture of the city is specific to the Italian and Parisian styles because it is inspired by the upper middle class. Lyon attracts because it has the advantages of a metropolis while keeping a rural side. Lyon's population is partly young and dynamic due to its student dimension.

If you are a new resident, take the time to identify the places you visit most often, to choose your ideal location and be sure to discover Lyon  in the best conditions.


La Croix Rousse, a village in the heart of the city


Belonging to the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, this district is unique.

La Croix Rousse is located in the northern part of the peninsula. On the plateau of the Croix Rousse, there is a rustic bohemian atmosphere and a little bourgeois, very pleasant.

Often considered a village in its own right, resembling the Montmartre district of Paris. Historically, this is the district where the silk workers worked, Lyon was the capital of silk. The working-class past of the Croix-Rousse hill has given it the nickname "the working hill".

La Croix-Rousse is the endearing district of Lyon. You will find small shops, Lyonnais corks, and the famous village atmosphere.

Today, the traditional looms are still in business, with orders for high-quality fabrics pouring in from all over the world. This tradition is perpetuated by lovers of this material: in particular the association Soierie Vivante and the Maison des Canuts. Croix-Rousse is well served by buses but also by metro C. 

Real estate in the Croix-Rousse district is very popular. The apartments are negotiated between 4500 and 7000 euros per m2. The prices go up as you go up the slope. The Croix Rousse plateau is one of the most expensive areas of Lyon.




The Presqu’île district, between Rhône and Saône


Belonging to the 1st, 2nd and 4th arrondissements, the district is between the Rhône and the Saône. The Presqu’île is home to emblematic historic squares such as Place Bellecour and Place des Terreaux. The 15th and 16th century buildings benefit from proximity to shops, cultural venues and restaurants. The Place des Terreaux and the hill of the Croix Rousse have always constituted the northern limit of the peninsula, while the southern limit has changed a lot over time. Indeed, at the end of the 5th century BC, the peninsula was no more than a group of islets extending only to the bottom of the Croix Rousse plateau.

Rue de la République is the main street of the Presqu’île district. Probably the most beautiful in Lyon, this long pedestrian avenue is right in the heart of the city centre. It starts from Place de la Comédie, where the Town Hall is located, at Place Bellecour, passing through Place de la Bourse and its beautiful palace housing the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Lyon. When night falls, many concerts and shows take over Place des Terreaux and its completely renovated illuminated fountain. It is this same square that shines with a thousand lights each year on the occasion of the famous Festival of Lights. It is an area very well served by various public transport. The Presqu’île district is very coveted and this is reflected in the prices which are constantly increasing. 



The coliving lease contract, how does it work?



Because of its very recent arrival, coliving is still poorly regulated in French law. In fact, co-living accommodation is often rented as furnished, on a mobility lease or even as a hostel accommodation.
