Recommendation for caution bancaire (Lyon)

Hi!
Our family is a little crazy - we decided to move from California to Lyon without a job or knowing anyone there. We have so far been lucky, as we are EU citizens, have enough funds to cushion us for about a year, and even luckier, someone who is willing to rent us their apartment. Now we have a chicken/egg situation: they would like us to show a security for the rent payment. I totally understand this, but am a little at a loss how to provide this. Could someone give me a recommendation as to which banks would be willing to provide a security? We are fine with frozen accounts, etc. but I don't know where to start looking for this kind of thing...Thank you!
