Our town, Ecully (Is near the beaujolais(wine) and the Dombes which is famous for its frogs' legs and its strolls.), touchs the second biggest town of France, called LYON. In 10 minutes you are in Lyon center.
It’s in the south-east of the country, and the weather is great: hot in summer but not too much, so we have a swimming-pool we can use all the summer along (sometimes till 29°C).
There is many public transportations to reach Lyon, but we can let you our big car with 8 real places, and a big trunk to put bicycles in (Toyota HiAce), and a smaller one, automatic, with 4 places.
You can shopping just near: there is a big commercial centre at 5 minutes by feet, with a supermarket and about 80 shops.
