Lyon: ideas around the city

C&IT checks out three options for groups in and around Lyon.

Perouges: The medieval city of Perouges is around 45 minutes from Lyon city centre by car. Groups can admire two styles of architecture, Renaissance and Italian-inspired, visible in many of the old houses that have been renovatd and turned into hotels. Local delicacies include Galette Perougienne, a savoury or sweet circular flat bread. 

Quartier des Etoiles: Groups can take a guided tour of this part of the city, an architectural and residential development built in 1974 and made up mostly of social housing. 

Golf tour: There are ten golf courses within 40 kilometres of the city, including Golf Blue Green Lyon Chassieu, an 18-hole golf course that also has a seminar room for meetings. Golf du Gouverneur is the largest course in the Rhone-Alps region, with two 18-hole options, a training centre and a clubhouse.
