Fight the heat this summer...

Have you shifted from sunbathing by the banks to lingering in the frozen foods aisle at the supermarket?

Fight the heat this summer...

Last updated date : 03/07/2018

Is it too hot to go to work? Find out where to go if you’re looking to cool off this summer!

Are you a nature lover? We recommend getting out of Lyon and heading for the Grand Parc de Miribel-Jonage, a beautiful nature reserve with beaches, or perhaps you'd like to go a little farther to the town of Cublize, which is home to Lac des Sapins (Pine Lake).

No car? No problem! The Centre Aquatique Les Vagues (Les Vagues Aquatic Centre) in Meyzieu, Aquavert in Francheville, or the centre nautique Tony Bertrand (Tony Bertrand Nautical Centre) on the banks of the Rhône, are all excellent options if you feel like cooling off in a pool!

Fancy a fuller range of leisure activities? The Spa at the Pavillon de la Rotonde in Charbonnières, Lyon Plage (Lyon Beach) in the 4th arrondissement, and Calicéo in Sainte Foy are ideal destinations for those seeking to cool off and unwind!

After a day of sports, quench your thirst while enjoying the view from one of the many restaurant terraces in Greater Lyon or pick out your favourite flavour of ice cream in a traditional glacier (ice cream shop)!

Of course, you can always simply head to the nearest indoor shopping centre in search of air conditioning, but either way, one thing is certain: this summer will be a scorcher!


Laetitia is a real ray of sunshine. Needless to say, there's no chance of getting bored when working by her side! Whether she's cheerful or glum, she's wont to burst into song, with tunes that tend to stick in your mind all day. Well where's the fun in a non-catchy song?
