I am a veteran teacher looking to relocate to Lyon, France. I would like to know the process of getting housing upon arrival. I am from the U.S., but obtained my PhD from Edinburgh, Scotland. Housing was arranged through the school. I did not venture out to obtain independent housing until my second year. I am currently sending my CV to schools.
I would ideally like to be in a very quiet, safe environment with at least 46 sq m (or 500 sq ft). I would consider a room rental that would allow me to save toward permanent housing goals. An area which would allow me easy access to schools for teaching and easy access to shops would be very helpful.
Any thoughts on how to get started are appreciated!
