About Sandra Prost

I left France 10 years ago to come in the US and I love coming back to Lyon. Best place for food and the city ! I remodeled the entire place this year to enjoy it myself too.

Sandra Prost purchased this condo in 2000

Why Sandra Prost chose Lyon

I am from Lyon and this location is the best to enjoy everything, travel and still be independant and have quiet time.

What makes this condo unique

I love coming back home whith the kids and no need to call anybody to pick us up. After traveling from the US and connecting to the train in Paris, we just walk out of the train and here we are: home ! A nice privacy and so close to the crowd of the city ! I love the sunny terrace which gives us a nice place to be out.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Sandra's apartment for 4 nights. It is just as described with a great space for two adults,comfortable bed,well equipped,reliable WIFI connection, and very quiet for sleeping.It is close to grocery shops including the fabulous Paul Bocuse Market,local transportation and the station. We walked everywhere and found it very accessible to Vieux Lyon and Presqu'ile. Sandra made the process very easy and readily answered any questions.Her delightful mother Christine met us and gave a terrific orientation to the apartment and neighbourhood. She promptly checked us out and returned our deposit. It was overall a very positive experience. Unfortunately the weather was very wet and cold so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy the terrace.

Perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this apartment. It is clean, modern by any standard (bath/kitchen), comfortable, attractive, close to all public transportation, quiet and well equipped. There is a lovely patio partially under roof, nicely furnished and accessible by all rooms. The neighborhood feels safe regardless of hour. There is a small grocer barely two blocks away for your daily provisions. While it says sleeps 4, it would be quite crowed for my taste; it is ideal for two.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week in March. It is in a quiet residential area, close to the main railway station. There are several bars and restaurants, a pharmacy (with an English-speaking pharmacist!), and a small supermarket within easy walking distance.

The apartment is attractively furnished, well appointed, and very comfortable, with excellent WiFi (which is almost a necessity these days). A small terrace is a sun-trap and it was nice to sit out there on a couple of sunny days.

Christine, Sandra's mother, welcomes you to the apartment and provides a quick tour of the immediate neighbourhood, and in particular points out those bus stops for getting to areas in the centre. The bus system is very good.

Unfortunately I had a slight medical problem while we were there which meant that we spent more time in the apartment than the average visitor. On the other hand, we can attest to how comfortable and convenient it all was.

We are an elderly couple and found the apartment to be ideal for our needs. There are some steps to enter the building, but there is also a rear entrance which should be wheelchair accessible.

We will be back.

Homely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This very spacious apartments has all one needs to make a home away from home. It is well equipped (adding a kettle available will be helpful for us tea drinkers) and fully furnished with all the home comforts. It is conveniently located as per the write up. The owner is very considerate and responsive. In her absence, her friend and family had been very helpful in settling us in and making us feel very welcomed. We enjoyed our stay in Lyon despite the rather wet weather during our stay.

Lovely Apartment in Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is even better when you see it in real life. The owner, Sandra, was very prompt and helpful in all our dealings and her mother, Christine, who met us at the apartment, was extremely friendly and very helpful. The location is perfect for accessing all areas of interest in Lyon and is close to the TGV railway station which is great for visiting other towns in the region. The apartment is very safe and secure and easily accessible on foot from the railway station. The apartment itself has everything you could need as far as cooking and washing are concerned, it is very clean and the bed is comfortable. It is quiet at night and I wish I was there right now! Thank you Sandra (and Christine), if we visit Lyon (a very beautiful city) again we would definitely want to stay in your apartment.

Comfortable, Clean and Close to Train

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Lyon for a conference and this apartment was perfect for us. It is on the ground floor and has a lovely patio. The owner's mom was very kind, met us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment. The internet worked great and the kitchen was well equipped for staying in and preparing your own meals. However, with so many fabulous restaurants in Lyon, I'm not sure why anyone would stay in! All in all, a comfortable, clean place to stay.
