We found it exceptionally clean and totally charming. It's also superbly well located with lovely views over the Saone, easy access to great walks and cycleways. We would unreservedly recommend the apartment and hope to return soon. A gem! Joseph & Ilona Frayne.

The location is excellent for exploring all areas of Lyon and is only a few meters from the metro at place Bellecour. Karin was very friendly, flexible and accommodating. It is like staying in a five star hotel.
