Reasons to book a hotel in Décines-Charpieu
A major suburb of the important French commercial city of Lyon, Décines-Charpieu hotels offer a wealth of support to help mobilise businesses in the area. Its Silk district is an important industrial centre, while Pivolles Business Park provides more commercial office space.
What can I find here that is unique?
Décines-Charpieu is proud to have been twice awarded the title of 'Flowery Town'. Indeed, its public gardens are bursting with vibrant blooms in the summer months, an indicator of the high quality of life on offer. The city also received the Paul Goujon Trophy for 'best action to improve the living environment' in 2014, so it's not just the economy here that is blossoming.
What will my business experience be like?
Located among the inner suburbs of Lyon, Décines-Charpieu lies at a confluence between major roads and has a direct route to Lyon Saint Exupéry Airport. A hydroelectric plant and silk factory characterised the city's industrial past; its economic identity is still defined by a proliferation of chemical and pharmaceutical companies today. The city is also home to almost 2000 companies and around 16,000 employees. Any business traveller to the city will probably work with an organisation called the One-Stop Shop, which was commissioned by the state to be a mediator between new businesses and the Economic Development Office of Grand Lyon. The One-Stop Shop assists with the administration required to launch your new business or initiative, including liaising with the municipal services required by entrepreneurs, as well as the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chamber of Trade, banking partners and so on. The organisation provides support at every level, from daily working life in the city through to major business moves.
What else can I do from my Décines-Charpieu hotel?
The city centre has a small but perfectly formed shopping centre, where you can find all the basic and luxury items you may require. There are also a number of centrally located restaurants that are usually buzzing with locals. Located in the city centre, Maurice Sauthier Park is an ideal community meeting place, its verdant beds blossoming with flowers and shaded by ancient trees. There are several other stunning parks near your Décines-Charpieu hotel – Garden Discoveries is particularly notable as its fruit and vegetable gardens play host to seasonal festivals.
