The flat had all the facilities we required and was in a quiet and convenient location. It has three good sized bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom and separate shower room. There's a metro station a few hundred metres away and the main railway station at Lyon Part Dieu is about twenty minutes' walk away. There are also shops and restaurants in the area.

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!
