Very close to the tram, or a short walk to the metro, which took us to the centre of Lyon very quickly. The apartment is stunning, and is equipped with everything you need. It's in a lovely and quiet location, which is just what's needed after a day spent sightseeing or shopping! We rented the garage for the week, which was well worth it, as we didn't need to use the car at all during our stay. I'd recommend the apartment to anyone visiting Lyon, excellent value and location. Merci Nicolas!

The apartment has beautiful architectural features, but with completely modern kitchen, bathrooms and other amenities. The owner, Laurent, was extremely helpful and friendly, even going so far as to make restaurant reservations for us in vieux Lyon. I highly and enthusiastically recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Lyon.
