Property prices in Lyon

Hello everyone,

Finding affordable housing in Lyon is number one priority for newcomers. Tell us more about the estate market in your district/city/region.

What are the most desired places to live? What are the most affordable ones? What is the average cost of a rented flat? And what is the average sale price for an appartment or a house? Could you tell us more about local real estate policies/procedures? What about property tax or residency tax in Lyon?

What about you? Where do you live now? Is it a place you would recommend?

Thank you in advance for your clarifications.


Lyon is quite an affordable city, as long as you don't want to live in the popular areas. The most expensive arrondissements that I noticed were the 6th and the 5th (Brotteaux & Vieux Lyon) but obviously you can find affordable housing everywhere; if you look hard enough.

The cheaper places are around the outside of the city in Villeurbanne and the 9th/8th.
I am living in Villeurbanne and I pay 400 euro a month in really nice shared flat which I think is a very good price!

Because the city has such a good public transport system, it is not a huge disadvantage to live on the outside of the centre. The metro runs until late and there are buses that can take you anywhere. There is even the Velov bike system!
