Fabulous location, clean & charming apartment
We had a great weeklong stay in Vieux Lyon. We loved the proximity but far enough away from the touristy noise and foot traffic. Bellcour Metro was our main starting point, as we came to Lyon for the Women's World Cup. Christiane met us on arrival to give us a quick orientation, and she and Thierry were both extremely responsive to our questions and needs. It was sooo much appreciated that the apartment has multiple fans and a cooler, as there was a heatwave during our stay. You are steps (150-200?) from the Roman amphitheatre. Such a wonderful place - thank you, Christiane & Thierry!
Wonderful Stay in the heart of Lyon
We had a wonderful 5-day stay in this apartment. The apartment is very clean, tastefully decorated and very quiet. Before our stay, the owners were very responsive to our inquiries and when we arrived, Thierry welcomed us and gave us some good recommendations. Best of all, the apartment is close to everything we wanted to explore. Although it's near the Vieux Lyon metro station, we walked everywhere. The apartment is a few minutes away from the Saone River and after crossing a pedestrian bridge and going down a staircase, we were able to run along the Saone in either direction. We were also close to the daily market along the river and went each morning to buy our daily bread, fruit and vegetables. Staying in this apartment allowed us to be part of the daily rhythm of this beautiful city and made for a memorable experience. All in all, a wonderful stay. Just one caveat: the apartment is up a short, but steep hill so those with mobility issues could be challenged.
Old town Lyon.
The apartment was clean. The photos were exact. Bed comfortable, kitchen well equipped, location perfect, never had to use public transit we walked everywhere. The hill up to the apartment was a friendly challenge. There was a little street noise from the double bedroom when sleeping with the windows open. The hosts were friendly and cooperative and we enjoyed the bottle of wine they gave us. Overall a great experience.
Excellent week in Lyon
We had a lovely week, the apartment was excellent, a great location even with the steep climb, it is right in the old town and yet quiet. It is well decorated and equipped, and we were very comfortable there. The neighbours were friendly and we had a great time exploring Lyon, a town which exceeded our expectations. There was so much to do we never even left town for a day trip, and we still didn't complete our list...Thanks for the lovely welcome - we felt at home straight away.
You can't get better than this in Lyon
We had the privilege of living in this apartment for 8 weeks this summer. We spent plenty of time there, got to know Lyon and the Vieux Lyon neighborhood, and can report back that this is the perfect place to stay in Lyon. The apartment is bright, modern, and very comfortable. 5 of us ( 1 adult and 4 children) slept very comfortably. Bedrooms were well decorated, beds were comfortable with nice linens, and closets had plenty of space. The kitchen worked very well for us, is well-stocked for cooking meals, and has a washing machine for clothing. The bathroom is roomy and bright with a skylight. We found the apartment to be a little hot in summer, but the owners brought a cooler and we had fans. It kept us comfortable.
As for the neighborhood, the apartment is situated on a very steep hill, and is on the 2nd floor of the building. So there is some climbing involved. But we found the street and hill to be very charming, and reaching Fourviere is very easy from a staircase at the top of the street. There are many restaurants in very close walking distance, including one at the bottom of the street. The apartment is within walking distance of Bellecour, and is a short walk to St. Jean, and the Vieux Lyon Metro station. All of the restaurants in the St. Jean/Vieux Lyon area are an easy short walk away. There are also several museums close by.
To summarize, I don't think you could stay anywhere in Lyon that would be more comfortable or convenient. We would not hesitate to go back to this apartment. Christianne and Thierry were the perfect hosts. We'll always think of it as our Lyon home. Thank you for a wonderful, unforgettable summer...made possible because you were willing to host us in Lyon!
Thank you very much Rhéa for your message and to have chosen our apartment for your stay in Lyon. It was a pleasure for us to welcome you. And we hope to have the opportunity to see you again.
Christiane and Thierry

L’appartement possède tout ce dont on a besoin pour des vacances. Les propriétaires sont très aimables. Ils nous ont donné des conseils utiles pour notre séjour. L'appartement est donc un excellent choix!
