The apartment was as described with tourist information to use. Lots of useful items were available such as oil, teas, foil, dishwasher tablets, and Corrine left juices, water and olives. We had a lovely time. Metro cheap and very efficient and the apartment a joy to return to at day's end. Sweet little outdoor space for breakfast and evening drinks. Very secure and would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to see Lyon, a lovely, lively city.

Very open planned but with great storage which is handy when you have lots of luggage. The design of the apartment is amazing, they have thought about everything! The apartment is in a main area close to restaurants, shops and bars. Although it is in a main area once you are inside you can not hear anything from the surrounding area, as it is set back a little. Me and partner took my parents, there was enough privacy for us all to stay in the same apartment. Apartment was incredibly clean and had no issues with this. Owner was a great help when we asked questions about local transport and surrounding area. Assisted with booking taxi to airport. The owner was incredibly polite and spoke English. I would highly recommend this apartment and would love to go back there!
