We loved it!

5 of 5
My husband and I booked this flat as in a convenient position during our stay visiting my brother-in-law. Mr Richard had a technical problem with this flat but promptly found for us another place where to stay. Very kind person! The new flat was amazing, new, clean and plenty of space! I definitely recommend it! Thanks Mr Richard!

A beautiful apartment in a great location

5 of 5
This apartment is centrally located. It is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It's within walking distance of many of the attractions. We loved the Old Town and the Musee des Confluences. The Lyon City Bus gives an excellent introduction to the city. Would also recommend a boat trip on the Saone. Don't miss the Basilica and the twin Roman Amphitheatres. A perfect city break!
