A Manor in Tarare near Lyon

This Manoir was built in the 19th century by a silk industrialist at a time when textile was the rule in Tarare and throughout the Lyon region.

First, we are surprised by the discretion of the façade on the side of the road. The first owner and his architect wanted a very simple and discreet facade not to disturb. But on the valley side the façade of the manor becomes exuberant with its tower, its impressive height, its roofs in all directions in beautiful slate, its terrace in ellipse. It overlooks a park full of trees more than 100 years old, cedars from Lebanon that you absolutely had to have in a bourgeois park, a tulip tree from Florida, like Marie Antoinette at little Trianon, a purple beech, a sequoia and many others that all help to filter the noises of the small town of Tarare and refresh the house during periods of high heat that become common. So silence and freshness are at the rendezvous and contribute to the rest of the travelers.

In a somewhat theatrical atmosphere there are five guest rooms all different and each have a particular theme:

They all overlook the park and you can sleep in peace. The park where you can go for a walk and sit by the ducks playing, tireless in their pond in the middle of the Roman ruins of the 19th century. Sometimes you meet the peacock Marcel.

The Manoir located in the center of Tarare, city located 35 minutes from Lyon and 10 minutes walk from the train station

The manor hotel is very easy to reach from the A89 motorway (exit Tarare Centre) as we are barely ten minutes from the exit. For the record we are 35 minutes from Lyon by car or train and 10 minutes walk from the train station. We are practically in the city center.
There is private parking at your disposal surrounded by high walls. There is of course Wifi throughout the house.

For a stage we first think of a hotel. A hotel is simple and convenient. But sometimes you want to stop in a beautiful house with welcoming and caring guests. There are very few rooms compared to hotels, so we have more time to be attentive to the needs of our guests.

Breakfasts with traditional croissants, bread from the best baker, homemade jams, a seasonal fruit tray are served in the dining room of the Manoir and are included in the price of the room.

Does the Manor have a history?

One morning the house was surrounded and even targeted. But Albert Giron managed to escape through the door at the bottom of the park to finally finish the war two streets down and continued his activity.

At the end of the war, the inhabitants of Tarare had offered him the Town Hall but he preferred to take care of his workshops and his affairs which were not famous during this war period.
