  • Great Location and Apartment

    "My husband and I enjoyed staying in this apartment during our week in Lyon. It is in a very good location on the peninsula, where you can easily reach the city's touristic areas. Restaurants, bars and shops are located just outside the front door. The apartment is just as pictured in the photos -- it is very comfortable and our hosts provided everything we needed (towels, bedding, washing machine, drying rack, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, etc.). Anything else you will need during your stay (i.e. toilet paper) can be found in any of the numerous small markets nearby. The apartment is compact, but very cleverly designed, so it was very comfortable for the two of us. The apartment is on the upper most floor (6th U.S., accessed by a small elevator) in an older building on the Place Carnot. It is well lighted, but the only real view from the apartment (of Lyon's rooftops and it's picturesque hilltop cathedral) is from the windows located in the loft (that contains 2 single beds), which is accessible by a very steep, narrow stairway. (The main floor bedroom contains a window overlooking an inner "courtyard".) The window in the living room is another source of light, but is a dormer window in the roof. The building must be very well insulated because, with the windows closed, the apartment was very quiet. The weather was warm during our stay and the three separate A/C units (controlled with remotes) worked very efficiently. Our hosts Odile and Emmanuel were very friendly, charming and helpful. Odile and her husband are easily accessible at all times (they actually live on the floor below). Odile met us on arrival, helped us park our car in a space they provided with the rental (located in a nearby private parking garage), and helped us with our luggage. We do not speak French, but communication was never a problem. We enjoyed visiting Lyon. We would love to return to Lyon in the future and we would not hesitate to stay here again. We highly recommend this apartment to others."

  • Charming, and perfect for the lovers of history

    "We honestly couldn't have asked for a better place in Lyon (Vieux). It was the cutest apartment with all the original character of its rich history (wooden beams, stone walls etc). Great size for a couple or even a small family. It was within walking distance of anything you could ever need in Vieux Lyon. But, what I loved best was that it also just happened to be in one of the city's infamous 'traboules'. As a great grand daughter of a French Resistance Member this was the cherry on top. I LOVED this place and will recommend it to anyone and everyone. Also, both Steve and Brigitte are exceptional people, kind, fun and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your charming apartment!!!"

  • Comfortable, Clean and Close to Train

    "My husband and I were in Lyon for a conference and this apartment was perfect for us. It is on the ground floor and has a lovely patio. The owner's mom was very kind, met us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment. The internet worked great and the kitchen was well equipped for staying in and preparing your own meals. However, with so many fabulous restaurants in Lyon, I'm not sure why anyone would stay in! All in all, a comfortable, clean place to stay."
