We recently rented this very welcoming Lyon apartment where we enjoyed a wonderful five night stay. Martine, the very kind and very helpful owner, met us upon our arrival to introduce us to the the apartment layout, furnishings and neighborhood surroundings. The apartment is very conveniently located within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, public transportation and visitors' sites. It is nicely furnished with everything we needed and has many windows for brightness and good cross ventilation. The bathroom has a tub with a handheld shower head which is manageable. Street parking can be difficult to find but a car is not really needed in Lyon. We returned our rental car after we arrived and were happy to walk and use public transportation when needed. We were very appreciative of Martine's kind offer to drive us to the train station for our departure. She even went into the station with us to be sure that we would find our departing track. It was our first visit to Lyon and we very much enjoyed the lovely apartment, the interesting city offerings and some of the fine restaurants. Thank you for everything, Martine. You made us feel very welcomed to the city and very comfortable in your apartment. We hope we will meet again and will certainly rent your apartment if we return to Lyon. We are pleased that we finally visited this very gastronomic French city which was greatly influenced by the culinary accomplishments of the great chef Paul Bocuse.
