Yes, there are a lot of stairs to climb but it is in a fascinating building full of character.It is well equipped with everything one needs for simple cooking. Our host was extremely helpful with local information and was kind enough to book us into a superb restaurant for a Christmas meal. The Roman sites and superb Gallo Roman Museum on the Fouviere Hill are easily reached from the funiculaire which runs from the Metro station..

It is a very stylish, loved the decor, it I was spotless and a very comfortable apartment. It has been very well designed and it is very well equipped, we wanted for nothing. Most importantly it was very quiet so a good night's sleep was guaranteed, ensuring we could enjoy Lyon to the full. Valerie and Patrice were perfect hosts, easy to contact and very quick to respond to any queries. On our arrival they were very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble . We were very grateful for their restaurant recommendations, they did not disappoint. Our only regret was our stay was over far too soon for us to try them all and experience everything Lyon has to offer. Needless to say we are planning a return trip as soon as work commitments permit.
