  • Recommendation for our relocation services in Lyon

    2016, 03-31

    We would advise anyone who is considering relocating to Lyon France to contact the Lyon Expat Services for help and assistance. We made the move to Lyon two months ago and just before leaving the UK had found the Agency’s website.
    Therefore on our first morning in Lyon made a visit to the agency and met Sophie DORD who is Founder President of Lyon Expat Services.
    Sophie enquired what our expectations and requirements were and guided us from then on, helping us to find an apartment and open a bank account.
    In just 24 hours of meeting we were able to view the first apartment. Within a week of arrival in Lyon an introduction to a bank was made enabling us to open a bank account.
    Any questions or problems we may have had were quickly and efficiently dealt with by Sophie DORD. With only a very limited knowledge of French and being unfamiliar with the City all this would have been a long draw out process without this assistance.
    We cannot recommend the Lyon Expat Services highly enough who enabled us to make a move to Lyon a relatively stress free relation.

  • Vincent, Sweden, homestay student with Lyon Expat Services

    “The family is very open and there really is no need to be shy when living in the house.
    This creates a very friendly and comfortable environment. I always felt that if there was a problem, the family would have no problems letting me know about it and I felt no hesitation in letting the family know if I had any issues I would like to have resolved.
    The family is extremely understanding and open to the needs of their student.
    Furthermore, the family has acted as a fantastic support throughout my time in Lyon. I really felt like I could discuss anything with them and I am very glad that I did. When staying with the family you really have a chance to be a part of a French family.
    It really is so much more than just a place to stay.
    Oh and I forgot to mention… they are all a blast to hang out with and really contribute to a fun stay in Lyon!”

  • Lee, English gives us his testimonial

    I started the house hunting process online and attempted to contact real estate agencies in Lyon by e-mail as my French is not yet up to standard.
    After a number of emails that went without reply I reached out to Lyon Expat to see if they could offer me help finding a flat.
    They were incredibly helpful from the first e-mail and offered me as much information as possible to help get the process started but also offered a lot of great information on the city.

    They used a simple questionnaire to determine the needs for my new flat and I was really pleased with the potential places they had set up for viewings. I really liked that they arranged the flat viewings to take place on one day, making it easier to take time off from work and not only that but I found the place I wanted to stay in that one day.

    The help offered did not stop there, as they then were present for me to sign the contract as well as explain the contract requirements and how to set up important household necessities such as electric and gas accounts.

    Overall, I have had a great experience working with Lyon Expat Services and I extend my thanks to both Sophie and Catherine who helped me specifically.

  • Testimonial on our Lyon Expat Relocation Services

    I'd like to compliment for the excellent service that "Lyon Expat Services" provided us.
    We moved to Lyon without knowing how to start.
    We did not know the language, the city, the bureaucracy etc.
    After checking few Expat agencies, we decided to get "Lyon Expat Services". I mostly remember that when we first met our consultant, I expressed my fears regarding finding the right place for us to live. She smiled to me and said "Do not worry. We never fail". The hunt for our new apartment went very smoothly.
    Everything was pre-planned for us for that day and all the flats that we saw were relevant for our needs.
    At the end of that day we found a place to live!
    We also used the office service to open contracts such as gas and electricity.
    No doubt, when it came to managing concretely our move to France, we discovered how crucial the service of "Lyon expat services" was, and how difficult our settlement would have been without it.
    We would love to recommend Sophie Dord and her team to anyone who relocates to Lyon!
