Très chic, très agreable!
With a Metro station just a short distance away you can head off to explore the city with ease. The Citadel is a pleasant walk. With a car, there is good access to major routes, including Flanders battlefields and memorials. In the adjoining street you'll find a whole range of shops including a supermarket. All round, this is a perfect location for a city break.
Fully equipped for self-catering, comfortable and quiet, this apartment is highly recommended. The French-speaking owners are très amicable.
We were visiting WW1 sites and the apartment was very convenient to both sites in France and in Belgim.
Also close to shops for food and wine.
I stayed in the apartment for 1 week in May 2015. The apartment is located near the metro station Canteleu in the west of Lille (as written in the description in TripAdvisor). This is a little outside of Lille which is no problem: you can reach the center of Lille in about 10-15 minutes by metro in the time from about 07:00 up to 00:30 in the night. By feet you would need about an hour.
When I booked the apartment and also still now, the google maps link of TripAdvisor shows the center of Lille. This lead to some confusion before my stay in Lille. However, the lessors were very kind and helpful to solve this confusion. They also reacted very fast on every mail I sent.
When I arrived in Lille, they welcomed me at the apartment and gave me a detailed explanation of everything I needed to know. They do not speak much english but are prepared with a translator if you only speak english.
The apartment was very clean and had everything you need to live, in particular also for cooking. A supermarket can be reached in under 5 minutes. The heating and warm water did react nearly instantly. The neighbors are not holiday guests but live there. They are calm and you hear no noise from the road. The windows open to an inner courtyard. Apart from this, the apartment is really nice decorated.
All in all, it was a very pleasant stay. I definitely recommend this apartment.
Thanks to the lessors!

Each room had a different theme and it had a stylish modern setup. The bed was very comfy and the room had a desk and stationery. Very nice feel to the place and the area was so quiet. I really enjoyed staying in such a nice apartment.
Secure parking, supermarket nearby, good transport links.
