Beautiful apartment, great location in Vieux Lyon
We had a wonderful stay at this apartment. The location was perfect for our family - there is easy metro access and great walkability. Emma was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable during our stay.
Fantastic view, Wonderful location
We had a wonderful week in Lyon with our adult children. This property is in a superb location, although you do need to be reasonable fit to manage the 140+ steps (which are part of a Traboules - so interesting in themselves). However it is worth it, because it is such a lovely setting. We hadn't expected the wonderful view we would have from the three large windows in the sitting room, which was a lovely surprise. It was beautiful both by day and night.
It is well located (within a UNESCO world heritage site) close to lots of interesting sites, museums and next to the metro station.
We were very well looked after by Helene, Emma's friend, who was very helpful. Many thanks
We loved our stay! Great location, great view, and fantastic apartment! Would come back anytime!
Hands down, best place we have ever stayed!
This host and this apartment taken together were one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. First, the apartment. We were travelling with our two adult kids and their significant others. We each had our own bedroom and shared the giant beautiful bathroom and separate toilet. The kitchen and living space, and all the rooms for that matter, look out high above the city of Lyon facing the morning sun. The living/dining room is really big and we were able to entertain all of our son's friends (he was a student for a semester in Lyon). The apartment is located on one of the old "taboules" or passageways from one street to another. Only this one is many stories high. You can park above the apartment and approach from the top, coming down two flights to get to the apartment. Or you can walk up from the middle of Vieux Lyon - seven flights up! We are in our 50s/60s but in reasonably good shape and did it at least twice a day. It is a beautiful stairway/passageway some of which dates back to the Renaissance!
Now, about Emmanuelle (Emma). This is her home and she also has a smaller apartment one story below. When she has guests like us who need more space, she moves down to the lower apartment with her 8 year old twins. So the apartment has lots of books and toys tucked away. It would be perfect for kids. She has a whole basket full of guide books and maps about Lyon that we found very helpful. She was happy to give us directions and if there was a problem, she was on the spot to fix it. I felt like I had made a new friend. Her English is perfect, but we tried our French on her too. She defines graciousness.
The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to cook a lot. Emma also left us bread, butter, jam and coffee. The confiture was very good. We were there in winter, but there is a lovely outdoor garden, also overlooking the city.
If what defines a good rental is comfort, you are going to feel perfectly at home in this place. Wonderful
We had a wonderful week staying in Emma's very comfortable and spacious apartment. The apartment has warmth, personality, character and has amazing views over the city. Only downside is there are a lot of stairs when coming up from the old city, but that was good for us to help work off some of the Lyonais food!
We loved being right in Vieux Lyon, but it was so quiet, and had a modern kitchen good for cooking dinners. The beds were comfortable and the shower was excellent. Our children were happy there as well- and Emma is super friendly and a great host.
We would certainly stay again if visiting Lyon. Thanks very much. Justin.
Beliggenhed i top
Super dejlig beliggenhed i den gamle bydel - det er bare ned af trapperne (i mange kringlede gange og trin) så er man lige i den mest spændende bydel i Lyon - med masser af liv, cafèer mm. samt det meste indenfor gåafstand i Vieux Lyon og i den lidt yngre bydel mellem Saone og Rhone floderne.
200 meters from the metro station
Lot of restaurants and bars around
