Cozy in winter, the upstairs is air conditioned and cool in summer. You will stay there with the same pleasure for a night or a week. La Cauvinière is the ideal haven from which to explore the capital of Gaul, its monuments and museums, but also its markets and shops. It is also the perfect place for a stopover on the road to the slopes or the beach. Indeed, thanks to the free parking on the property, vs you will not need to empty your car. Bikers or cyclists are also welcome. They will benefit from the best welcome and a closed shelter for their two-wheelers. La Cauvinière also benefits from the Accueil Vélo label (Viarhona plan, recovery equipment;). Finally, its proximity to Gallo-Roman theaters makes La Cauvinière a privileged location to attend the Nuits de Fourvière shows, hosted every summer in June and July in this two-thousand-year-old setting which dominates the city. In the morning, depending on the season and your desires, a French breakfast will be served in the garden, or in the veranda where you can enjoy the flowers without fear of a downpour. With Alain, you can talk about photos, planes, gardening or painting. He will also show you his city, the one that this Parisian adopted 35 years ago. Do not hesitate to ask him for advice or walking trails before setting off to explore the Basilica of Fourvière or the traboules of Old Lyon.
