Opt for an old industrial building in boho-vintage style, whose history gives it an indescribable soul. What if you privatized an arty house for your film shoot?

When it comes to renting your film location in Lyon, it's perfectly possible to opt for an apartment with an unobstructed view of the wooded hillside.

A large walnut table, a fireplace, materials of plant and mineral origin, and vine wood seats are just some of the elements you can choose from when renting natural settings in Lyon.

Emblematic filming locations in Lyon

Do you dream of shooting 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, a homogeneous group of buildings constructed during the Renaissance. With its cobbled streets and traboules, it's immediately charming! Head for the Quai Saint-Vincent, which Louis, played by Jean-Paul Belmondo, crosses in La Sirène du Mississippi. There's no shortage of apartments overlooking the Saône, and they're sure to meet your business needs. Then head for the Passerelle des quatre vents! In 1900, this railroad was used to transport coffins to the Loyasse cemetery. Today, the railroad no longer exists, but the footbridge offers a sublime view of Fourvière: a beautiful setting for your film, especially as apartment rentals for filming in Lyon are extremely convenient.

Find an unusual space in Lyon

If you're looking for an unusual location for your film in Lyon, you've come to the right place. On our site, which specializes in the rental of natural settings in Lyon, you'll quickly find what you're looking for. From the hanging gardens of Perrache, landlords compete to present lofts and apartments to suit all budgets. The brightly colored flowers add a touch of cheerfulness and create a privileged environment for filming scenes in a true haven of peace. And don't miss the Rosa Mir garden! With its columns decorated with shells and pebbles, mineral frescoes and Hispanic-style vegetation, it deserves to be listed as a historic monument and is an inviting place to stroll around. What's more, it's ideally located in the inner courtyard of a building in the Croix-Rousse district, a neighborhood teeming with Canuts apartments. This type of dwelling is characterized by very large windows, exposed beams, 4-meter high ceilings and a mezzanine with a kitchen underneath, as the weavers slept on their workplaces.

Secret filming locations

The city of two hills never ceases to amaze visitors and locals alike. So, if you want to captivate an audience, don't hesitate to visit the Vaise fort. On the surface, it exudes a dark atmosphere, particularly suited to the shooting of a crime or horror film. Entering the underground passages of this historic site, built around 1840, is a thrilling experience! Have you ever heard of Lyon's fish bones? They're the City of Light's greatest enigma, because these tunnels, branching out from some thirty galleries dug beneath the Croix-Rousse, have existed for centuries, but no one knows their origin or purpose. All the more reason to choose this fascinating district as your location for filming in Lyon! The Ermitage du Mont-Cindre rock garden in the hills above Saint-Cyr-au-Mont-d'Or is an unlikely backdrop for your film. In fact, this work of art was created between 1878 and 1910 by Brother François, who was watching the Fourvière basilica take shape on the hill opposite. He would undoubtedly have been inspired to hand-carve chapels, grottoes and a belvedere, all out of pebbles.
