This attractive first-floor apartment - in a UNESCO World Heritage area, Presqu'île - is situated between the Rhône and the Saône. The city's major historical sites, the best restaurants and most distinctive shops are all within easy walking reach.
The apartment has many historic features - hardwood floors, an open fireplace and exposed wooden doors and shutters.
My recommendations to restaurants, shops and services in Lyon are included in a dossier in the apartment to make your stay in Lyon as enjoyable and authentically French as possible. In the general area, there are excellent restaurants and shops including traditional butchers, bakers and greengrocers. The Opéra de Lyon, the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the ancient city are all within a few minutes' walk. The Saône is two minutes away and there are attractive walks along the banks. A daily food market is held by the river with second-hand books at the week-end
Buses, the Metro and a city bike (Vélo'V) rental station are all close-by
