Home base for a month in France?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to spend a month in France in the late spring (May) but haven't landed on the best place to stay. We have been to France a few times (Paris, Burgundy, Loire, Nice, Normandy) but haven't been to Lyon, which seems really interesting to us. We were wondering if there is a town/village near Lyon from which we could travel around the area by car or train. Or might it be better to stay right in Lyon? We mostly want to relax but we enjoy food, wine, art, museums, walking, hiking and biking. We'd love to rent an apartment or a house (versus a hotel). We would like to take day trips or the occasional overnight trip from our home base if that makes sense. Would it be better to split this into two locations of two weeks each?
