About the property

With an ideal location between Place Bellecour and Place des Terreaux, this apartment has all the necessary comforts and is very quiet thanks to its double windows. Its view over the Rhone is stunning. You'll admire the Lafayette Bridge and its walkways, which are even more beautiful when lit up at night. At a stone's throw, you'll enjoy sites such as the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the city hall, and the Parc de la Tête d'Or. Lyon's old city is just a ten-minute walk away.

Highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

Jean Marie has been an excellent host and a lot of help in getting our accommodation/transport and stay in Lyon as comfortable and convenient as possible. I have lost my phone and Jean Marie was kind enough to offer a phone to help us around. The location was perfect, the apartment was perfect and the chance to live in Lyon like a local was more than perfect!!

comme ci, comme ça

We did not get a passcode of any sort to enter the building. I figured we would have this especially since we noted that we weren't going to have cell phone service, so we couldn't call him once we were there... So we were waiting outside for hours. A kind gentleman who lived in the building let us in and helped us find the place at the third floor. When we knocked, there was a very nice young man waiting there for us this whole time! He was super cool, though he was not the owner. We never met the owner,actually.

We made sure to keep things clean. The fridge had some food in it that was already OPENED and EATEN.. and that was weird. I did like that there was a washer and a tv with a good selection of channels. We were not given any advice in email or message, letter etc on what to do or see in Lyon, but that's okay. Decent stay overall, good from 2 to 4 people to stay.

Very central location

  • 4 of 5

The location is excellent and it is easy to walk to anywhere in the city. Close to farmers markets, walks along the rivers, old city, shopping and restaurants. The host was extremely helpful and friendly. He even offered us a walking tour of the neighbourhood. The living room is very nice and spacious. Kitchen is full of high quality equipment. We had a very nice time in Lyon.

The only negative side (that is why it is only 4 stars) is that it is somewhat noisy. One cannot leave the windows open because of traffic noise, also in the evening. The bedrooms are quiet though.

Pictures & description are completely accurate.

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a wonderful location with a great view. The unit is clean & very comfortable. Jean-Marie is extremely polite & helpful. He arranged car service for us & helped orientate us to the neighborhood. I would rent again with no hesitation. Lyon is a beautiful city and having a flat that is in a safe convenient location made our stay even more enjoyable.

Perfect Rental In The Heart Of EVERYTHING!!!

  • 5 of 5

I feel terrible for waiting so long to write this review, but wanted to make sure that I let everyone know how amazing it was to stay here! Jean-Marie was one of the most thorough, funny, and understanding hosts we have ever had the pleasure to deal with. From arranging transportation from the train station, to explaining every component of the rental, recommending local grocery stores and restaurants, and also arranging transportation for our departure… I could go on and on and on… but to sum it up - every detail was taken care of!

The unit itself is beautiful and has a rustic historic charm with modern amenities. Located up a winding staircase, the secure front door opens to the well equipped and tastefully decorated apartment. It's ideally located and walkable to Old Town, great shopping, and of course perfectly located to enjoy beautiful strolls along the river.

A couple quick notes to be aware of…

The unit itself is located up quite a few stairs, but I didn’t have any trouble. We did go with my 70 year old father-in-law who was a little slower up and down. The stairs are not bad, but just be aware if you are arriving with anyone who has mobility issues.

Don’t focus solely on the areas that are behind the apartment. We spent two nights in Old Town, and did not discover the restaurants across the river (along the walkway) until it was too late. I wish we would have found them sooner!

Not related to the apartment, but if you are looking to book a wine tour, you MUST go through Lyon - Wintours with Vincent. He is a local who has recently started his own company. He is classically trained, keeps his tours very intimate, and takes you to family owned wineries instead of huge corporations -quite simply, it was the highlight of our entire trip to France.

One last point – Jean Marie walks you through every step with how to check out. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen! We left early in the morning and trusted other people to turn in the keys… of course they forgot and flew back to NYC with them… I FELT TERRIBLE! Jean Marie was incredibly understanding and I think appreciated our urgency to try to send them back. He takes so much time to prepare for your arrival and to make your departure smooth and effortless, so please take the time to ensure you leave the apartment how he asks.

The property is amazing, close to everything that we want to see and great restaurants.

Also the market that is well worth a visit, French food at its best. If you can go to the section were they only sell chickens and boy is it worth it.

This property is one of the best we have stayed at. It has everything you need to be comfortable on your holiday.

Jean is a great character and super helpful.

Looking forward to coming bk again once the new addition is here.
