Accommodations for short holiday stays in Lyon

Lyon, France’s 2nd ranked tourist destination for visitors from higher socioeconomic categories

In 2011, the Rhône-Alpes region accounted for 9% of all hotel stays by French tourists. It came a close second to the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (French Riviera) region, which accounted for 9.4% of all hotel stays (Source: TNS Sofres – French Tourism Survey).

The typical profile of a visitor to Lyon is that of a city-dwelling individual from a higher socioeconomic category. Retirees top the list, followed by executives and professionals (23%).

This is 7.4 points higher than the French average, linked in part to the mountain area, which is somewhat more discriminating in terms of income. Nearly two-thirds of Lyon’s visitors come from a large or medium-sized metropolitan area (including Paris).

In terms of age, 30% of the French clientele visiting Rhône-Alpes is between 35 and 49 years of age, 26% is between 50 and 64 years of age and 17% is from 25 to 34 years old.

A short getaway to Lyon: choose a short-term rental apartment

Whether or not you belong to one of these categories, short-term apartment rentals are an alternative to standard accommodations, a new way of staying in the city.

If you are planning a getaway to the Capital of the Gauls, a visit to the Musée des Beaux-Arts fine arts museum in downtown Lyon, a trip to the Lumière Institute, the birthplace of cinema, in the 8th district, a visit to the Greater Lyon Aquarium in la Mulatière or simply to enjoy a cruise on the Saône with Lyon City Boat, a standard, run-of-the-mill hotel room simply will not do.

Beyond what the Lyon Tourism Office has to offer, for an entirely satisfying visit to the city, try a short-term apartment rental. This will give you the quality, authenticity and character of a typical Lyon flat.

Go out to the International Museum of Miniatures, head back into your apartment in the heart of the downtown Presqu’île district and get changed for dinner at an authentic bouchon Lyonnais.

Your next trip to Lyon is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to discover our short-term rental service.
