      by rma2511 Online Now Jul 21, 2014 at 7:26 AM

      I'm taking a road trip with my girlfriend, and am planning on proposing to her when we visit Lyon, as I was living there as a student when we first met.

      Are there any particularly good places for this that anyone can recommend? My first thought was fourviere, but would happily hear more suggestions as I have not been back since 2008!

      Thanks!

      Hi, I know there is a shuttle type train that goes from the airport in Lyon to the various train stations, I have used it but I do not remember how long it takes to get from the airport to Lyon Part Dieu and how frequent these transfers are. Since I will be on quite a tight schedule, travelling to Clermont Ferrand, every minute is vital to complete booking my train tickets so I really need your help, please.

We think we need to be in the 1st or 2nd arrondisment. Do you agree? Or is the transportation system in Lyon good enough to stay a further out? What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to find such a place or know of a friend with such a place? Connections would be a great thing right about now... Thanks for any helpful suggestions. Have tried vrbo and homeaway but most listings come without maps and/or addresses so difficult to see if they are close. Thanks for your time and expertise.

    • Suggestions for 4-5 week stay in a village around Lyon

      by wulf21 Online Now Aug 16, 2013 at 8:26 PM

      Hi,

      Planning to take the family (my wife, her mother, 3 kids who will be 6, 4 & 2, and myself) to France in September/October 2014.

      We're hoping to stay in a village around 30km from Lyon and have the following wish list:

      • Small, picturesque village with good food/wine;
      • Rural rather than tourist trap;
      • Close to a canal.

      There's a few others specific to the accommodation (at least 4 bedrooms, pool etc), but they're the main ones we'd like.

      Has anyone got any suggestions based on your experiences of the area?

      Regarding the accommodation, hoping to hire a house (perhaps thru Wimdu or similar), any suggestions about that gratefully received also.

      Thanks!!!

      Most Outrageous Cheese in France

      by Mark_Lester Online Now Nov 30, 2012 at 10:29 AM

      We are doing a rather epic train trip round europe. We'll be doing a lot of pincincing onboard, and so a lot of the remaining planning is al about working out what to put in the picnic hamper at each of our rapid stops.
      Alas, super stinky cheese isnt something that goes down very well on posh TGVs, or any train really, so we'd have to eat anything like that almost at point of purchase. Any suggestions for cheese strong enough to scare off a tribe of Stilton eating englishmen would be most appreciated.
      Les Halles is purpose built for our requiremtns, We have 3 1/2 hours in Lyon (11:30 to 15:00) and it's walking distance from Part Dieu.
      If you are a Lyonnaise, either in spirit or literally, and have any recommendations for what to stick in a picnic hamper, or a particular shop in Les Halles you adore, please let me know and I'll jot it down on our blogs food pages. There will be 13 of us, so we can handle about 2.5 Kgs of cheeses, and about 2kg of meats, several of these terrines, (including one veggie) plus loads of breads and some deserts, and some fruit etc. We'll also need quite a bit of Rhone wine....
      We'll be going to Limoges when we leave, in order to pick up the sleeper to Barcelona.
      We've got a budget of £30 a picnic per person, so pushing 500 euros not including drinks, and Lyon is worth pushing the boat out for so we could extend the budget for this stop.
