“great location and lovely property”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The apartment was full of character and was a 'home from home'. Ana's parents were lovely and helpful. The local shops and restaurants were everything you could hope for and the location is fantastic for walking along the banks of the rivers, there is a street market close by and the Musee des Beaux Arts is fantastic....

It was a delight to stay in Ana and Mark's apartment. Ana's parents were so helpful and friendly to us with all the information we needed despite our very poor French. Everything in the apartment suited us so well. It was spacious, really well appointed and very tastefully decorated. We loved the historic ambience but with all the modern comforts. The location is great for access to everything in Lyon and we had a wonderful 10 days there. Thanks so much.

“Very Large Apartment in Historic Building”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

We spent 5 nights in this apartment and it is exactly as described. As you walk up 23 stone steps in this building, you feel as if you are going back in time. Once you open the door, you are aware of the size. Three almost floor to ceiling windows let in light and the stone wall & old wooden floors add to the ambience. The closet is the bedroom is quite roomy and the kitchen is well equipped and up to date. The rain shower was heavenly, the washing machine really worked and the toilet down the long hall reminded you were in Europe. And, the wifi signal was very good!

We were met by the owners' parents who speak very little English but we understood most of the explanations. Prior to our arrival, we were in contact with the owners who were prompt in answering our questions. In fact, while we were there, we had a question about the drying feature on the washing machine and the owners not only sent instructions by email but offered to phone us for further help if needed.

The only small drawback is that the windows are not double planed; hence, you heard talking at night when people walked down the street. The ground floor of most of the buildings on that short street were mostly parking garages for residents of the apartment above. But, it is Europe and the streets are not quiet at night!

If you have questions, do email the owners, Ana & Mark. They are very willing to answer you promptly. It is a lovely apartment in an excellent location for walking Lyon and we would stay there again.

“Huge and atmospheric apartment in good location”

We spent a long weekend in this apartment. We were met by Ana's parents who were very helpful and explained everything (it helps if you know some French!). As previous visitors have said, it is a real surprise to open the door and see just how big the living space is. Everything is high quality, and the kitchen is very well equipped indeed. Beds were comfortable. Fabulous bathroom with nice big towels. Two words of caution for the older visitor - the loo is a long walk from the bedroom, and is very small, which seemed strange in such a generous sized apartment. And I found the stairs up to the apartment a bit difficult as there is no handrail and they are old spiral stairs. (I think they said the building was originally a 16th century monastery, but I might have got that wrong). Don't let either of those things discourage you - it is a delightful place to stay and very conveniently located. We would go back.

This is a really nicely decorated apartment in a great part of Lyon. Close to lots of top rated restaurants and bars. The owners family showed us in and very extremely pleasant and very helpful. We travelled with our 1 year old and we found a nice dark spot for her to sleep just off the bedroom! Has everything you need.
