À propos de ce logement
A charming 1928 country house very quiet with a two minute walk of all the necessities; Grocery, Boulangerie, Butcher, Post Office, Pharmacy, bus into Lyon (20 minutes), XI th Century Church.
The two-story home was built in 1928 (we preserved the date on the hallway wall when renovating). I updated the bathroom in 2013 to all new finish and fixtures. Most of the house is original with a few modern amenities added overtime.

The full house is available to use - there is an small mattress in the landing/loft/nook upstairs that can accommodate an additional person if needed.
The neighborhood is sweet and many people have lived in Grezieu-La-Varenne for generations (including my family). This home was built by my great-uncle Antoine Marchina and later given to his sister, my grandmother Annette Richard. I grew up coming to stay and visit many summers here and just love the house and village.
There is a bus that services Grezieu and will take you all the way to Gorges-de-Loups (25 minutes) which is the transportation hub for other bus connections and the Metro. You can find the stops around the new center of the village just beyond the end of the street. It is even possible to get to and from the airport via public transportation. You can buy tickets on the bus (exact change) but a book of tickets is cheaper and you can buy those at the stations.
If you have your own car, there is street parking or parking in the property inside the gates.
The home is on a small one-way street with an elementary school across the street. When school is in session you hear the the playing voices of small children around 8:30am, at noon and in the afternoon as they are dropped off and picked up from school. The church bells ring during the day. There are peaceful sounds of birds almost all year long.
The XIth Century Catholic church is historic and holds mass at least once/month. There is also a weekly farmers market as well as a weekly organic farmers market.
