I was wondering if anyone could help? I was wondering if they have such a thing as furniture and household auctions in France like they do in the UK? I am looking for old rather than new style furniture.

Hi to all. My daughter is moving to Lyon for two years as part of her university degree this year and im after a bit of information on where to look for an appartment. She needs to be within public transport of the centre and in a nice part of town (Safe!!!) Also are there any ex pat groups that are available to join and whats the overall feel of the city. Guess im just a little worried as ive only visited a couple of times a few years ago. Thanks for any information.
