Our family of 4 stayed comfortably in this Lyon flat. Located at the top of a hill, it has a nice view of the city and is very quiet at night. There is one toilet in a separate room and 2 separate showers. There are 3 bedrooms- 2 of them are located away from the master. The master is a bright, light filled room, especially in the morning, so bring your eye masks if you like to sleep in longer. The other 2 rooms stay very dark in the morning hours. In those 2 rooms there is a double bed (full or queen size) in one room and a twin (single) bed in the other. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. If you can do without a car, I would suggest it. There is a subway/metro station just down the street that is very convenient to the historical area and this flat. Otherwise, there is parking at St. George parking garage. The owners do have a spot to park in front of the flat, but you have to get a access card from them first to access the road and the road is quite narrow in parts. Plus, parking spots are not always available.
Thank you very much for your nice review.
Just a little precision ; it 's easier to park your car at Parking St Georges but it's not free!
Beautiful terrace, good location
We spent 2 nights here with our family of 5. The apartment is in a great location in Vieux Lyon, though be aware it is up a relatively steep street in a pedestrian area. The best thing about the apartment is the terrace, which is wonderful for sitting out in the evening and morning with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. The inside of the apartment is nice but not fancy. The owners live next door, and were helpful with checking in and letting us keep our luggage there until we had to leave for a train in the late afternoon. We would highly recommend it for location and for the beautiful terrace.
The property was stunning and in the most perfect location. Fabulous.
Very clean and spacious apartment, with the balcony looking out over the roof tops, perfect. Lyon is buzzing and vibrant with many things to see and do. We packed our days full, walking miles. The buses are easy to use too, and the cycle paths are great for the bikes that you can hire out.
The apartment is in the old town, which is full of pretty cobbled streets, squares and places to eat and drink. Gorgeous location. 4 of us went and we all thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Would definitely highly recommend the apartment and a visit to Lyon. Brilliant.
Thank you Christine for your quick responses and helpful tips. Jeanette.
A group of four adults, we spent five nights in this delightful apartment, located in the heart of Vieux Lyon. The outdoor terrace overlooking the rooves of Old Lyon, was an ideal place to eat breakfast and entertain.
The steep hill to gain access to the apartment was a bit of a challenge at the end of a long walking day!!! Lyon itself is a fabulous place for a short break.
Very Convenient, Comfortable Apartment; Great Hostess
Our hostess, Christine’s, apartment suited our needs perfectly. The location in Old Lyon was very convenient to restaurants, shops, and historic sites, with easy access to the metro for a short trip to Lyon’s city center.
As mentioned in other reviews, Christine was VERY helpful and attentive getting us settled upon our arrival. When we were lost trying to first locate the apartment, she made a long, up-hill walk to find us on a street that was parallel to our destination. She and her husband also held a parking spot for us in front of the apartment so we could park our car there. After we moved in, she gave us a tour of the apartment, pointing out various things we should be aware of such as operation of the washing machine.
The apartment was very comfortable for our party of three, had all necessary conveniences, and was very quiet. One bit of information guests considering this location should be aware of is that although the apartment has two showers, one of the showers is adjacent to, and partly open to, one of the bedrooms and sink/laundry area. This was not a major problem, just something you might want to be aware of. The view from the apartment’s terrace was great, offering something different both day and night, such as the illuminated tower of Église Saint-Georges.
Thanks Christine and family for a wonderful stay in Lyon. We would consider staying at your apartment again if we return to Lyon.
Great stay in Vieux Lyon
I came to Lyon to meet my son after he finished his yearlong study abroad program at the University. It was the first stop in a 3 week tour of France and Italy. This was one of my favorite homes and we really enjoyed our stay in this very unique and comfortable home in the heart of the historic center. Christine was wonderful and explained everything to us. The comfy beds and beautiful terrace were appreciated very much after long days of exploring the city. It is very easy to walk all over Lyon from the house, and there are bike stands very close as well, so that you can rent a bike in one place, and return it at another. The home has a cook top, fridge, coffee maker, nice eating area inside, nice modern bathrooms and a nice outdoor area. Much more comfortable and spacious than a hotel room. The location of this home is what makes it so special, it is in a superb area, you can walk to everything and it is very safe at all hours. There are numerous restaurants very close and the metro is very close as well. I wanted to stay in Vieux Lyon and was very happy with my choice. Thank you Christine for sharing your wonderful home with us!
