A great little flat in Vieux Lyon
We really enjoyed our stay in this little apartment in historic Vieux Lyon. The flat was calm and peaceful with a beautiful view over the city and to the mountains beyond. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The climb up the 7 flights of stone steps through the traboule added to the charm of the place. We would definitely stay here again.
Heart of Vieux Lyon- Fabulous location
The location is ideal; close to Metro stop, and within a few steps of great restaurants with authentic French cuisine. Looks of shopping options close by, short walk to major museums and silk companies. There are many stairs, but good exercise, and as the apt is in the middle of a hillside it was cool despite 100 deg temperatures outside. Great hostess, and friends who helped us get luggage up and down stairs and provided transportation to airport for a fee. We would stay there again.
Great Apartment in Vieux Lyon
Emma’s apartment was beautiful and well furnished. It is close to several restaurants, bars, markets, shopping, and a metro stop. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Lyon.
Très bien mais pas un 5 étoiles
Très bien situé dans la partie la plus intéressante de Lyon, le métro tout près. Il faut noter par contre les 115 marches à monter, donc on évite les aller-retours à l'apartement. Un peu chaud la première nuit et avec les fenêtres ouvertes quelques petits moustiques en ont profité ;-)
Slice of life in Vieux Lyon!
Emmanelle's flat is very quiet - it opens onto a courtyard with a view of rooftops and the cathedral - you'll hear birdsong in the morning and church bells in the evening. It's a super location - walk up the famous "montées" - stairways to the Basilica on the hill, the Roman Ruins, the pretty, serene park built into the side of the hill ... all lovely, with the added benefit (requirement, really) of working off the rich but amazing food in Lyon. The flat is stocked with all the basics, plus guidebooks and suggestions by Emmanuelle of her favourite non-touristy bakeries and restaurants. The heat and hot water are excellent. Emmanuelle is a great host - not obtrusive, but full of ideas, help, and information should you need it (or even if you look like you need it but are too shy to ask!) We also walked to the central part of Lyon and over to the other side of the river easily. A great stay!
A beautiful perch atop a beautiful city
This charming apartment has a rustic, loft-like feel and a ton of space to unwind after a full day of dining and sight-seeing. Yes - it truly is 6 flights of stairs, but with Lyon's rich food, that's a good thing! It's only steps to the metro and the funicular railways that go to the Roman Amphitheater and the wonderful Basilica. There are restaurants galore nearby specializing in traditional Lyonnaise fare, but also tapas, Asian and lovely bakeries as well. The shower was nice and big, and the views from the bedroom and living room/kitchen were great. There isn't a full grocery on the Vieux Lyon side of the Soane river, so keep that in mind if you can stock up on a few staples that the little Casino convenience store a few blocks away might not have.
Being so close to the metro made accessing the train station a snap for the TGV from Paris, a day trip to Annecy and catching a bus to Bordeaux.
I highly recommend the property, the neighborhood and our wonderful hostess Emmanuelle - Merci beaucoup!
