About Sandra Prost

I left France 10 years ago to come in the US and I love coming back to Lyon. Best place for food and the city ! I remodeled the entire place this year to enjoy it myself too.

Sandra Prost purchased this condo in 2000

Why Sandra Prost chose Villette Gare

I am from Lyon and this location is the best to enjoy everything, travel and still be independant and have quiet time.

What makes this condo unique

I love coming back home whith the kids and no need to call anybody to pick us up. After traveling from the US and connecting to the train in Paris, we just walk out of the train and here we are: home ! A nice privacy and so close to the crowd of the city ! I love the sunny terrace which gives us a nice place to be out.

The apartment was great!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is conveniently located on the ground floor and has a lovely patio. Sandra’s mother was very helpful and I can’t think of anything that was missing. A small grocery store is about a block away and les Halles is an easy walk. Lyon is a great city.

Loved this apartment

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for a Lyon stay. Easy 5 minute walk to local supermarket and bus. The apartment itself is spotless, comfortable, quiet, well equipped. Would stay here again.

Another plus is that the apartment is about 10 mins by bus to LesHalles de lyon.

Bien situé, calme et très confortable.

  • 5 of 5

De tous les appartements que nous avons loués à Lyon depuis une dizaine d’années, c’est la 1ère fois que nous sommes aussi satisfaits. Nous avons séjourné une dizaine de nuits dans l’appartement (de fin décembre à début janvier) et nous n’avons pas vu le temps passer.

C’est un appartement bien équipé, moderne, très fonctionnel, très confortable et bien sécurisé. Appartement très calme, on y dort aussi très bien car la literie est parfaite. Tout est propre dans l’appartement et c’est merveilleusement bien décoré.

Tout est parfait.

Même en hiver, nous avons pu profiter de la grande terrasse privée et sécurisée.

Les voisins ne sont pas bruyants et sont très gentils (on les a rencontrés dans le hall).

L’emplacement est vraiment idéal : situé dans un quartier résidentiel calme, à une dizaine de minutes de marche de la gare, à trois minutes du supermarché Casino et proche de tous les transports en commun et autres commodités.

Sandra a été disponible pour répondre rapidement à toutes nos questions, par mail et par téléphone. En son absence, c’est Christine, sa mère qui nous accueillis, mon mari et moi. Ce fut un grand bonheur de rencontrer Christine. Très attentionnée et réactive, elle a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable. C’est une grande dame que nous ne remercierons jamais assez.

Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement. Ce fut une expérience très positive. Nous avons quitté l’appartement avec beaucoup de regrets car nous y étions vraiment à l’aise et c’est avec tristesse que nous avons laissé à Lyon le beau sourire de Christine.

Nous y reviendrons. Encore un grand merci à Sandra et à Christine.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Sandra's apartment for 4 nights. It is just as described with a great space for two adults,comfortable bed,well equipped,reliable WIFI connection, and very quiet for sleeping.It is close to grocery shops including the fabulous Paul Bocuse Market,local transportation and the station. We walked everywhere and found it very accessible to Vieux Lyon and Presqu'ile. Sandra made the process very easy and readily answered any questions.Her delightful mother Christine met us and gave a terrific orientation to the apartment and neighbourhood. She promptly checked us out and returned our deposit. It was overall a very positive experience. Unfortunately the weather was very wet and cold so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy the terrace.

Perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this apartment. It is clean, modern by any standard (bath/kitchen), comfortable, attractive, close to all public transportation, quiet and well equipped. There is a lovely patio partially under roof, nicely furnished and accessible by all rooms. The neighborhood feels safe regardless of hour. There is a small grocer barely two blocks away for your daily provisions. While it says sleeps 4, it would be quite crowed for my taste; it is ideal for two.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week in March. It is in a quiet residential area, close to the main railway station. There are several bars and restaurants, a pharmacy (with an English-speaking pharmacist!), and a small supermarket within easy walking distance.

The apartment is attractively furnished, well appointed, and very comfortable, with excellent WiFi (which is almost a necessity these days). A small terrace is a sun-trap and it was nice to sit out there on a couple of sunny days.

Christine, Sandra's mother, welcomes you to the apartment and provides a quick tour of the immediate neighbourhood, and in particular points out those bus stops for getting to areas in the centre. The bus system is very good.

Unfortunately I had a slight medical problem while we were there which meant that we spent more time in the apartment than the average visitor. On the other hand, we can attest to how comfortable and convenient it all was.

We are an elderly couple and found the apartment to be ideal for our needs. There are some steps to enter the building, but there is also a rear entrance which should be wheelchair accessible.

We will be back.
