Emblematic filming locations in Lyon

Do you dream of making your film in cult locations in Lyon, such as Saint-Jean? Several scenes from the police comedy Mon petit doigt m'a dit... were shot in this district of the 5th arrondissement, named after its Gothic cathedral. Listed as a World Heritage Site, it is part of the historic site of Vieux-Lyon and is a homogeneous group of buildings built during the Renaissance. With its cobbled streets and traboules, the charm is immediate! Head for the Quai Saint-Vincent, which Louis, played by Jean-Paul Belmondo, crosses in The Mississippi Mermaid. There is no shortage of apartments with a view of the Saône and they are sure to meet your professional needs. Then head for the "Passerelle des quatre vents"! In 1900, this railway allowed the transport of coffins to the Loyasse cemetery. Today, the railway no longer exists but the footbridge offers a sublime view of Fourvière: a beautiful setting for your film, especially since renting apartments for a shoot in Lyon is very convenient.

Find an atypical space in Lyon

If you are looking for a location for your film in Lyon that is out of the ordinary, you are in the right place. On our website specializing in the rental of natural settings in Lyon, you will quickly find your happiness. From the hanging gardens of Perrache, the owners compete with ingenuity to present lofts and apartments for all budgets. The brightly coloured flowers add a touch of cheerfulness and form a privileged environment for filming scenes in a real haven of peace. Don't miss the Rosa Mir garden either! With its columns decorated with shells and pebbles, mineral frescoes and vegetation in typical Hispanic style, it deserves to be listed as a historical monument and is an ideal place to stroll around. Moreover, it is ideally located in an inner courtyard of a building of the Croix-Rousse, a district which abounds in Canuts apartments. This type of dwelling is characterized by very large windows, exposed beams, a height under ceiling of 4 meters, a mezzanine equipped with a kitchen underneath since the weaver workers slept on their places of work.

Secret filming locations

The city of two hills never ceases to surprise visitors, but also the people of Lyon. So, if you want to captivate the audience, don't hesitate to go to the Vaise fort. On the surface, a dark atmosphere emerges, particularly suitable for the shooting of a crime or horror film. When you enter the underground passages of this historical place built around 1840, the experience will be very exciting! Have you ever heard of the fish bones of Lyon? This is the greatest enigma of the city of light, because these tunnels branched by about thirty galleries dug under the Croix-Rousse have existed for centuries, but no one knows their origin nor their use. This is a good reason to choose to rent your film location in Lyon in this fascinating district! As for the rock garden of the Hermitage of Mont-Cindre, built on the heights of Saint-Cyr-au-Mont-d'Or, it represents the unlikely setting for your film. Indeed, this work was shaped between 1878 and 1910 by Brother François, who watched the basilica of Fourvière take shape on the opposite hill. He would have been inspired to hand-carve chapels, grottoes and a belvedere, all with pebbles.
