                                  Beautiful old apartment, in perfect location.

                                  Narelle S.

                                  Beautiful old apartment, charmingly decorated with everything you need. Great location. Highly recommended.

                                  Great place in Lyon

                                  This is perfectly situated

                                  Lovely stay in Old Lyon

                                  Sarah S.

                                  This is a lovely place, combining the experience of living in a medieval building with a lovely decorated apartment. It opens onto a bustling square in Old Lyon, though inside the courtyard it is very quiet. Lots of delicious restaurants and shops nearby. As others have said, the apartment is rather dark, but the lighting is nicely done. Spacious living room, even when the sofa bed is pulled out. On a raised ground floor, you only have to carry your suitcases up about 10 stairs. Note that cell reception does not come through the stone walls.

                                  Perfect littel gem in the heart of old Lyon

                                  Kathy C.St Petersburg, Florida USA

                                  My husband and I spent 3 lovely days in this quaint, but modern and excellently located, apartment. It is situated in the heart of old Lyon which is heavy with tourists, but the apartment is quiet and has everything one needs for a pleasant stay. Walking out the door you find yourself in the midst of shops, restaurants and cafes. Lyon is a beautiful city and there is much to see and do. Our hosts Brigitte and Steve were friendly and helpful. They even accepted our little traveling companion Marcel , a 3 kilo caniche ( poodle) dog.

                                  We will stay here again on our next visit to Lyon. !!!

                                  We were delighted to have you in our apartment and we'll be glad to greet Marcel another time.

                                  Fantastic Location In The Heart of Old Lyon

                                  Ralph J.San Francisco

                                  This is a fantastic location for people wishing to stay in the heart of Vieux Lyon! It is in a very old building (built in the 1300s i think). It is near many historic buildings, one block from the Saone River, a short walk away from the Cathedral, the Metro and the funicular which takes you to the top of the Fourviere Hill where the Bastille is located as well as two ancient Roman sites. There are nearby markets, bakeries, restaurants and a dizzying array of shops. A few blocks away appears to be a district that supports digital animation companies with several shop windows showing cute mechanical animations. Across the river is Place Bellecour which is a short walk away and has one of the best tourist offices we have ever visited.

                                  We stayed in the apartment for three nights and slept on the fold-out bed in the living room which we found to be very comfortable. The apartment was spacious, clean, safe, quiet, well equipped (refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, television, phone and on and on), warm, comfortable and very relaxing. It is on the French first floor (second floor for U.S. folks). Light comes in through one set of windows, so it is a little dim. There wasn’t anything about the apartment that we disliked. We thought the apartment reflected the pride of ownership that Steve and Brigitte must have in it.

                                  Glad to see how much you enjoyed Lyon and our apartment. Hope you'll be back this way.

                                  Best wishes,

                                  Brigitte and Steve

                                  Perfect place for lovers of history

                                  D Leah T.

                                  We honestly couldn't have asked for a better place in Lyon (Vieux). It was the cutest apartment with all the original character of its rich history (wooden beams, stone walls etc). Great size for a couple or even a small family. It was within walking distance of anything you could ever need in Vieux Lyon. But, what I loved best was that it also just happened to be in one of the city's infamous 'traboules'. As a great grand daughter of a French Resistance Member this was the cherry on top. I LOVED this place and will recommend it to anyone and everyone. Also, both Steve and Brigitte are exceptional people, kind, fun and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your charming apartment!!!

                                  Thank-you for these heart-warming comments. What we really appreciate is knowing that we've been able to help our clients enjoy their stay.
