The Rhone/French Alps region

Lyon, capital of the gastronomy and patrimony of UNESCO, is extremely rich in its history, diversity, geographical location and architecture. In minutes, one can pass from Roman ruins, admire the Medieval cathedral, explore the Renaissance traboules, visit the art museum in an 18th century convent, buy your meal on the open-air market on the Saône, or at the famous Halles de Paul Bocuse in the Part-Dieu where modern skyscrapers overlook the city.

For longer stays, you can imagine day visits to Vienne and the Côte de Rhône wines to the south, east to Annecy and the Savoyard wines and cheeses in the Alpes, north east to Bourg (and the magnificent convent at Brou) and the Bressane cooking, Beaujeu and the Beaujolais wines in the north, or even to the west near Clermont-Ferrand and the divers offers of the Massif Centrale.

Culturally rich, Lyon offers several festivals in addition to the full regular seasons of symphony concerts with the Orchestre National de Lyon, opera with the Opera National de Lyon, dance at the Maison de la Danse, and theater with a wide choice of theaters.

In matters of festivals, the biggest is the Light Festival, four days of amazing demonstrations of light designs and shows throughout the city, always held around December 8.

During the summer, the antique theater at Fourvière holds a festival providing a diversity of artists. There are also jazz festivals in Vienne, Rive de Gier, Bron, etc. Or the Nuits Sonores, festival dedicated to electro music.


If you never came to Lyon, you will be surprised seeing this city which extends over the heights which we call the district of the Croix Rousse, moreover the inhabitants of Lyon differentiate Lyon in the Croix Rousse: we are of Lyon or croixroussiens! You also have the rise(ascent) of Fourvière dominated by the Basilica, and not far the ruins with the amphitheater(lecture hall) where happens every summer of the welcoming concerts approximately 5000 people. The key point of this city is the big park of the golden head, a treasure in the city. Markets on the edges of the Saône and the Rhône also are not to be forgotten because they are really typical. The peninsula going of the Place(Square) of the Opera up to the Place(Square) Carnot offers you a very pleasant walking(step) in this pedestrian street. The Place(Square) Bellecourt situated in put path(way) between the Place(Square) of the Opera and the place(square) Carnot, is grand! Old inescapable(major) Lyon with its cathedral and its traboules, small passages from a street to the other one typically Lyonnais(inhabitant of Lyon,inhabitants of Lyon).

"Fantastic Location, Warm and Welcoming Apartment"

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 Sa… More

"Presque comme chez soi"

Accueil très sympathique de ce "team familial", la situation géographique vraiment idéale, le calme de l'appartement situé dans une cour intérieure, la batterie de cuisine et la va… More

Merci pour ces commentaires et nous sommes toujours content quand nos clients passent un bon séjour. Juste une petite commentaire, la couchage "originale" dans le mezzanine, généralement prévu pour les enfants ou en lit supplémentaire, a un sur-matelas rempli de sarrasin, pas en polyesturane, qui est sensé être très bon pour la santé.

"Great Apartment full of Character"

We spent 3 nights in this lovely old apartment in Old Lyon. The location is ideal with a vast selection of restaurants within walking distance and easy access to the rest of Lyon via the trolleybus that is 5 minutes walk away and runs every 5 minutes.

The apartment is full of character and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Our 15 year old loved the cabin bed!

The museums and cathedrals are in the guide books but we really enjoyed seeing the murals on many buildings around the city, Check out La Fresque de Lyonnais a few minutes walk away.

We managed to pick 3 days in August that it rained but really enjoyed Lyon and plan to return. We will try and book this apartment again. Although Brigitte and Steve were out of town they were very helpful and Mme Marcon was there to welcome us when we arrived.

"Small but very comfortable"

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this little gem of an apartment right in the heart of old Lyons. Our hosts were very pleasant and readily responded to all our queries. They were also very accommating over our unexpectedly late arrival. The apartment was well presented, had everything needed for comfort(including a comfortable fold out bed), and has been thoughtfully furnished with beautiful artworks and well chosen items of furniture. It was close to many of the most interesting attractions of the city. We would stay there again without hesitation

"Highly recommended .. Cozy, ideal Vieux Lyon location"

This apartment was quite comfortable, with excellent heart of Vieux Lyon location. Extremely quiet despite the lively neighborhood. A bit dim since the only window opens to internal courtyard. Kitchen well equipped with microwave, espresso machines, dishwasher, etc. Also laundry,tv, wi fi, good shower. Roomy. Exactly as pictured in the website.

My 2 teenagers shared the loft bed and liked it. I used the fold out couch which was just ok.

The hosts met us at the apartment and were very professional.

The location was absolutely great. Many, many restaurants right outside the front door. River only one block away. Beautiful neighborhood with great feel and interesting architecture. Located at end of St Paul tram line made it easy to get around all of Lyon. Also several Velo bikes stations nearby.

Merci pour vos commentaires. Nous avons suivi votre suggestion et immédiatement remplacé le canapé convertible par un excellent, voir superbe, modèle digne de notre appartement. Nous espérons que vous trouverez l'occasion de le tester.
