A Manor in Tarare near Lyon

An 18th century Manoir built at the very beginning of the twentieth century by an architect disciple of Viollet-le-Duc, for a muslin industrialist, at a time when textiles were the law in Tarare and throughout the Lyon region.

The first owner went to look for a very young architect from Lyon, 30 years old, who was starting to make people talk about him. To satisfy its customers this one has imagined a Manoir à la Viollet-le-Duc: its very pointed and impressive tower, its roofs in all directions in beautiful slate, its facade rich in many details, its terrace in ellipse, make it a fairy tale house, unexpected for this turn of the century.
The house overlooks a park full of trees more than a century, cedars of Lebanon that you absolutely had to have in a bourgeois park, a Florida tulip, like Marie Antoinette at the Petit Trianon, a purple beech, a redwood and many others that all help to filter the noise of the small town of Tarare and cool the house during periods of high heat that become common. So silence and freshness are at the rendezvous and and contribute to the rest of travelers.

The architect E. Cateland became famous four years later for the construction of the «skyscraper» ie the Cateland tower in Lyon

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.
