Default Moving to Lyon with kids

Hi everyone,

We are moving to Lyon in January 2018 for a minimum of 12 months with our two kids who will be 7 and 9.

I'm seeking advice on places to live around Lyon and primary schools with good reputations. Thinking public primary school.

We're happy to find a good school and then arrange to live near by. Thinking of renting a fully furnished place through Airbnb / Gites in france or another website platform if you know of one?

I previously posted a thread asking about the Toulouse region and the responses where overwhelmingly useful.

Really appreciate thoughts you can contribute. Many thanks in advance.

Hi, the general advice on schooling which we've already given in your other thread is applicable to Lyon. I would add that i've never heard of a Primaire with a bad reputation (except perhaps in the 93 and parts of Marseille where no teacher would like to be transferred). If no one can personally recommend a "good" one, then come over to visit a few schools, to get an idea and make a deciision, then find a furnished gîte to rent in the catchment area while you decide how long you'll stay, so that you'll have justification of domicile when you enrol at the Mairie.
I didn't read the full thread and may have missed an episode, but if you aren't salaried or self-employed with a French business structure, you'll have to take out private healthcare insurance for you and your family. If you're seconded from a UK company, take a look in the "posted workers" thread, in the Read-Me: Moving to France FAQs above.
Hope all this helps!
