About Yoann Vandoorselaere
Keen to travel, we started renting our home in order to fund a one year world trip. Since then, it seems we have not been able to settle down, and short-term rentals allow us to keep moving around while being able to come back to our apartment anytime we needs! Wether you come to Lyon for professional reasons or to visit the city, with family or friends, our comfy and high capacity apartment will allow you to enjoy your stay.

Lovely Lyon rental
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saxe & the City. The apt. had everything we needed and more. We couldn’t beat the location either. Our hosts were so responsive and everything was in order, as promised. We would love to return! Our only regret...vacation ended and we had to leave. Many thanks for a pleasant stay!
We loved staying in the apartment, it was spacious, comfortable and quiet but in a central location, easy access to transport but we mostly walked everywhere.
It’s all true!
All the positive reviews are true. This is a lovely spacious flat centrally located in Lyon and offers everything a guest could want for a city stay: Metro access, a lovely view, full kitchen and laundry, comfortable beds. We visited during extreme heat and the only downside is that there’s no air conditioning in the unit. Otherwise, a perfect stay.
Home away from Home
What a fantastic apartment from which to explore the beautiful city of Lyon with all it's hidden treasures!
So spacious, so clean, so well-equipped & an elevator to the 5th floor - comfortable bed and strong wifi ( essential for antipodeans travelling for 3 months). This is clearly not just a 'holiday rental', but Yoanne & Ida's home.
And importantly, a Metro station (lines B & D) immediately below giving quick access to Part-Dieu station, the Tourist Centre at Bellecourt, and Vieux Lyon.
Several boulangeries and a couple of bars are within close walking distance, and a wonderful Traiteur immediately below who managed to feed us on several occasions.
The apartment is managed by Natacha who is always on call and very professional, and Yoanne & Ida stay in touch.
All in all a wonderful experience.
Would not look anywhere else for a return to Lyon.
Great location central to everything
You could not ask for a more central location than this property. With the metro just beneath you it is easy to move around the city with ease.
The apartment was well appointed and very spacious. Good views from the balcony. Checking in was also very easy, Carine was there on time to open up for us and to explain how everything worked. If you have a car the parking arrangements are very good as well. Would highly recommend this apartment if you are coming to Lyon.
