About the property

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

I live in a separate apartment in the same building and can provide help and advice if this is needed. For early arrival and late departure, guests may store their luggage in my apartment by arrangement

The apartment comprises

A large living room with 1 glass table and 6 leather chairs, 2 armchairs and 1 comfortable leather sofa-bed (Convertible Rapido system with Simmons mattress (140 X 190)), 1 desk, 1 large TV with cable channels, DVD/Blu-ray player, 1 fan

Bedroom with 1 bed (140 x 190), 2 wardrobes, 1 fan

The apartment is situated on the 1st floor (American numbering - 2nd floor). A lift serves the 2nd and higher floors but it is possible to walk down from the 2nd to the 1st floor.

About Laurent

I have myself rented many furnished apartments and – through that experience - have arrived at what guarantees an enjoyable stay: a warm and friendly atmosphere; a large main room which gives a real feeling of space; a centrally situated apartment to enjoy the city without necessarily having to take public transport; a good bed; good Wi-Fi connection; and a thousand little details which make all the difference - large wardrobes for storage, a full-length mirror, a reading lamp near the couch, a desk separate from the table for meals, a well equipped kitchen (for lovers of cooking), quality crockery good enough to invite friends, blackout curtains in the bed room.

These are the criteria I have used in equipping this apartment. I live nearby and can be called upon to provide help and advice if this is needed.

J’ai moi-même loué beaucoup d’appartements meublés, j’ai ainsi pu identifier ce qui garantissait un séjour réussi : un cadre agréable et chaleureux, une grande pièce principale qui donne une véritable sensation d’espace, un appartement très central pour profiter de la ville sans avoir forcément à prendre les transports en commun, un lit de qualité, une bonne connexion Wifi et mille petits détails qui font la différence comme de grands placards pour ranger les affaires, un miroir plein pied, une lampe près du canapé pour lire facilement, un bureau séparé de la table sur laquelle les repas sont pris, une cuisine très bien équipée (pour les amoureux de la cuisine), de la vaisselle de qualité si je souhaite inviter des amis.

C’est selon ces critères que j’ai équipé cet appartement. J’habite en plus au même étage, je pourrai si besoin facilement apporter mon aide.

Long on steps

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was fine and the owner extremely helpful. Location was good, can walk to the river and Old Town. However, beware. The apartment is one flight up and the elevator does not stop on that floor. And it is a long flight. Difficult with luggage and tired legs at the end of a day of sightseeing.

Owner's Response: As advertised, the lift within the apartment block does not stop at the floor of the apartment. The stairs up from the ground floor are a gently curving 19th century flight of stone steps which are reasonably shallow; there is a handrail. If you prefer, you can take the lift to the second floor and walk down one floor. I have had the pleasure of welcoming many elderly guests who have not found access to the apartment at all challenging. That said, I would completely understand if someone with limiting physical disabilities preferred to book another apartment.

Just right for exploring Lyon

  • 5 of 5

Across a bridge from the old city- all the main Lyon attractions within walking distance. A comfortable apartment with everything we needed and Laurent was a friendly, welcoming and charming host. We would go back.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The apartment is extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished. Its location is perfect for walking to several major sites in the city and the Metro is only a couple of blocks away. Although the apartment is on a busy street, it's very quiet inside. And Laurent was a wonderful and charming host. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for comfort and convenience in Lyon!

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment had everything we needed. Spacious living room and a large dining table.

Even though located on a busy street, it was a very quiet dwelling. This central location allowed us to walk to all of the sites we planned to visit. Laurent is a great host who made us feel very welcome in his environment.

We would stay here again if we returned to Lyon.

A lovely apartemnt,, ideally located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was located close to shopping, a large outdoor grocery market, all sorts of other facilities and most importantly great bakeries. It was just of the large central plaza with many restaurants, and all the transportation systems. The kitchen was very well equipped, the living room was very comfortable. Even though it was in quite a lively neighbourhood, we were never bothered by noise. It was exactly as shown in the photos, clean and well kept. The owner, Laurent, was very welcoming. I would have no reservations about recommending it to may friends.
