Why Brigitte and Stephen Eliason chose Lyon

stepping out of time, finding one's self in the XV century yet in a bustling city is real treat.

Le temps sortant, trouvant son soi au XV siècle encore dans une ville très active est un vrai plaisir.

Highly reccomended

  • 5 of 5

Located in the centre of "Vieux Lyon" but overlooking a quiet courtyard, this property is ideally situated for the visitor. It is equipped to a high standard and has everything you would expect to find in this type of accommodation. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others.

I could imagine what it was like 500 years ago (but with updated amenities!)

  • 5 of 5

First, the location could not be any better than on this little square. Restaurants, bars, shops, everything, right out your front door. Centrally located to walk and public transport options all over. The entire city is yours from this location.

Secondly, the apartment itself starts as a secret behind a door that appears to go nowhere. Just a nondescript door in the corner of the square. Once inside, you can feel the centuries, imagine what could have happened in these walls and who could have lived here over the centuries.

It is a comfortable and well-furnished apartment. The kitchen is very good, the living area spacious and comfortable. We did sleep in the loft bed, it is not uncomfortable and just like sleeping in a boat if you've ever done that. Brigitte met us to familiarize ourselves with the property and we were enjoyed every day there. Would definitely stay here again and we found Lyon to be the most amazing city.

Vieux Lyon Cour Renaissance

  • 5 of 5

Brigitte and Steve were gracious property owners..staying in touch prior to my stay and at the door to greet me, show me how equipment worked, even info for a reliable Taxi company for trips to the train or airport. Brigitte thought of everything in the kitchen, dishwasher, a real cooktop, freezer, linens and serving dishes...plus lovely gray&white stenciled bed linens, which she came in, changed and replaced with towels the 2nd week of my stay.For restaurants, I chose lunch on the 4th floor, over looking the gardens at the Cafe Gadagne/Musee( about 1 block away). After shopping for fruits and vegetables ( over the red bridge look left), I had lunch at Jols,restaurant de poissons fruits de mer, all fresh from the sea. Attended a Schubert concert at Maclay(donation) & Jazz Concert(free)both at Parc St.George( a 15 min walk..if you do not stop for crepes or ice cream). While there visit & shop for fine silks at Solerie St. Georges. Art is everywhere but especially at Vis Art Gallerie,26 quia Romain Rolland, on the way home from shopping, say hello to artist Sofie and An. I loved Lyon..it is a great walking city with helpful and friendly residents. PS You will carry Vieux Lyon with you. ...Enjoy.

Charming, and perfect for the lovers of history

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Small but very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cool apartment in perfect location, but needs a new bed

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is located in the very centre of the old town within walking distance of all the sites, the wonderful restaurants, the market and the river. The building is truly old and very interesting and the studio is well equipped for cooking and laundry etc. - all the amenities are there and the photos accurately reflect the appearance of the apartment.

The landlords were very accomodating and flexible and they provided lots of information about the city, the attractions and transport. The night at the symphony was a very lovely and much appreciated touch.

The downside to the apartment, that we feel we must share, is that the sofa bed is extremely uncomfortable. The mattress is hard and lumpy and it slopes towards the middle, as mentioned by a previous reviewer. We were forced to be creative in order to get any sleep. The mattress in the loft is probably more comfortable but the loft is of a crawl-space size with a very low ceiling so is not recommended for tall adults. If the sofa bed was replaced with a comfortable double bed and a couple of separate comfy chairs it would make a huge difference.
