Beautiful, well-situated apartment in the heart of Old Lyon

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days in Brigitte and Steve's lovely apartment. It is spotlessly clean and is exactly as pictured. The kitchen was well-equipped and contained pantry items like spices, paper towels, dish soap, etc. We slept in the loft bed, which was very comfortable. The apartment is in an amazing old building and is full of character and charm. Just outside the building, there is a lovely square; shops, restaurants, and bars are all within a few minutes' walk. Lyon is a beautiful city - very clean, friendly, and walkable. From the apartment, you can easily walk to all of the sights ( and if you don't feel like walking, you can jump on public transit or rent a bike - it is a very bike-friendly city). Excellent restaurants abound - Lyon is the culinary capital of France, after all! We especially enjoyed Les Retrouvailles and Aux 24 Colonnes.

Thank you, Brigitte and Steve, for being so helpful and accommodating. We are especially grateful for all the extra help you offered in trying to find our lost luggage. We really appreciate all you did for us!

I would highly recommend a stay in this tastefully furnished apartment. You won't regret it!

Great Location in Vieux (old) Lyon

  • 4 of 5

This apartment has it all. It is right in the centre of the old city and everything is within walking distance. The apartment is in an old building. Entering via a security door and walking down a short walkway takes you into a small courtyard where after passing through the building security door you only have to climb 7 stairs to get the the most amazing experience ever. The aparment has a spearate upstairs bed (enclosed like a boat bed) and an open plan kitchen, dining and living area (which as a sofa bed where we slept). The owner was more than helpful with maps, advice and any assistance needed to make our stay enjoyable. Good for a couple without children (although 1 older child could use the upstairs bed).

Old town Lyon

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent and the unit is well furnished. We used the sofa bed and the cubby bed. The sofa bed is comfortable and is fine for two people. It is easy to find the unit with public transit and the owners were outside the building upon arrival. They provided a thorough review of the unit. The unit is on a busy walking street but there was no street noise in the apartment even with windows open as the unit faces a small inner court yard. Great place to stay and visit Lyon.

Highly reccomended

  • 5 of 5

Located in the centre of "Vieux Lyon" but overlooking a quiet courtyard, this property is ideally situated for the visitor. It is equipped to a high standard and has everything you would expect to find in this type of accommodation. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others.

I could imagine what it was like 500 years ago (but with updated amenities!)

  • 5 of 5

First, the location could not be any better than on this little square. Restaurants, bars, shops, everything, right out your front door. Centrally located to walk and public transport options all over. The entire city is yours from this location.

Secondly, the apartment itself starts as a secret behind a door that appears to go nowhere. Just a nondescript door in the corner of the square. Once inside, you can feel the centuries, imagine what could have happened in these walls and who could have lived here over the centuries.

It is a comfortable and well-furnished apartment. The kitchen is very good, the living area spacious and comfortable. We did sleep in the loft bed, it is not uncomfortable and just like sleeping in a boat if you've ever done that. Brigitte met us to familiarize ourselves with the property and we were enjoyed every day there. Would definitely stay here again and we found Lyon to be the most amazing city.
