                                                      Jennifer C.

                                                      We were delighted by the atmosphere of the apartment and the neighborhood. Traveling with my husband and adult daughter, we had enough space and privacy and could prepare meals easily. To our surprise, there was a lovely Vivaldi concert one night across the square, which enhanced our visit.

                                                      Wonderful time in the old town and this amazing apartment.

                                                      The apartment was very stylish and with everything you need. The location was wonderful, very close to everything.

                                                      Charming apartment beautifully situated in Vieux Lyon

                                                      We had a lovely stay in Brigitte and Steve Eliason's apartment right in the heart of Vieux Lyon. They even met us at the train station and drove us back! Everything was provided for a comfortable stay. We especially appreciated the furnished kitchen, and the washer/dryer. The location was perfect, allowing us to explore Lyon on foot. We highly recommend this VRBO property! Mary and Ted Johnson

                                                      Great suite, great location

                                                      LanceVancouver, Canada

                                                      This is a lovely suite in a beautiful old building that is nicely furnished with a good bed (actually two), a functional kitchen and bathroom in the old part of Lyon. The building itself seemed to be of interest to tour groups but we didn't find out the details. From the front door there are many little Bouchon Restaurants and we tried two; loved the first but were disappointed with the second one. From the apartment it is very easy to cross over the river to reach the 1st and 2nd arrondissements.

                                                      Beautiful, well-situated apartment in the heart of Old Lyon

                                                      Darcey S.New Westminster

                                                      We spent five days in Brigitte and Steve's lovely apartment. It is spotlessly clean and is exactly as pictured. The kitchen was well-equipped and contained pantry items like spices, paper towels, dish soap, etc. We slept in the loft bed, which was very comfortable. The apartment is in an amazing old building and is full of character and charm. Just outside the building, there is a lovely square; shops, restaurants, and bars are all within a few minutes' walk. Lyon is a beautiful city - very clean, friendly, and walkable. From the apartment, you can easily walk to all of the sights ( and if you don't feel like walking, you can jump on public transit or rent a bike - it is a very bike-friendly city). Excellent restaurants abound - Lyon is the culinary capital of France, after all! We especially enjoyed Les Retrouvailles and Aux 24 Colonnes.

                                                      Thank you, Brigitte and Steve, for being so helpful and accommodating. We are especially grateful for all the extra help you offered in trying to find our lost luggage. We really appreciate all you did for us!

                                                      I would highly recommend a stay in this tastefully furnished apartment. You won't regret it!

                                                      Pleasant, well located.

                                                      This is a pleasant apartment in a great location. It was well equipped, had comfortable bed and a was very quiet. Brigette and Steve were terrific hosts and helped us in many ways.
