About Eliane Lomax
I was born, raised and educated in Lyon. I now live in the western United States but return to Lyon as often as I can to keep in touch with family and friends. I love this beautiful city.
Eliane Lomax purchased this studio in 2008
Why Eliane Lomax chose Lyon
I inherited the studio from my parents. Although the building is 'younger' than me, it is located in the heart of the neighborhood where I grew up. My old high school (lycee) is two blocks away. From the balcony, one can see the church where I made my first holy communion and the city hall where I was married (many years ago).
What makes this studio unique
Besides the super-convenient location of the studio near everything in Lyon, what makes my heart rejoice upon opening the front door is the incredible view of the rooftops and monuments, and the sense of space and freedom standing on the balcony -- in the center of the city and yet near the sky.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We really feel blessed to have got to stay in your studio. The location was superb, close to everything including metro and tram. We enjoyed having the clothes washer and being able to cook our meals helped us with our limited budget. The location was quiet and not touristy and we enjoyed feeling like we were one of the locals shopping at the farmers markets, Les Halles, Carrefour the grocery store at the mall, and of course the chocolate croissants at the bakery closest to your studio, out the door to the left on the same side of the street less than two blocks; there was always a line out the door early in the morning. It was very hot. The indoor thermometer read 39 c. two days in a row. The fan was a lifesaver and of course being on the 11th floor helped.
Again thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful studio. It was awesome! Tell your housekeeper hello for us. She was delightful!
