Stylish apartment in the heart of Lyon

This attractive first-floor apartment - in a UNESCO World Heritage area, Presqu'île - is situated between the Rhône and the Saône. The city's major historical sites, the best restaurants and most distinctive shops are all within easy walking reach.

The apartment has many historic features - hardwood floors, an open fireplace and exposed wooden doors and shutters.

My recommendations to restaurants, shops and services in Lyon are included in a dossier in the apartment to make your stay in Lyon as enjoyable and authentically French as possible. In the general area, there are excellent restaurants and shops including traditional butchers, bakers and greengrocers. The Opéra de Lyon, the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the ancient city are all within a few minutes' walk. The Saône is two minutes away and there are attractive walks along the banks. A daily food market is held by the river with second-hand books at the week-end
Buses, the Metro and a city bike (Vélo'V) rental station are all close-by

I live in a separate apartment in the same building and can provide help and advice if this is needed. For early arrival and late departure, guests may store their luggage in my apartment by arrangement

A large living room with 1 glass table and 6 leather chairs, 2 armchairs and 1 comfortable leather sofa-bed (Convertible Rapido system with Simmons mattress, 1 desk, 1 large TV with cable channels, DVD/Blu-ray player, 1 fan, 1 electric piano (Yamaha)

I have myself rented many furnished apartments and – through that experience - have arrived at what guarantees an enjoyable stay: a warm and friendly atmosphere; a large main room which gives a real feeling of space; a centrally situated apartment to enjoy the city without necessarily having to take public transport; a good bed; good Wi-Fi connection; and a thousand little details which make all the difference - large wardrobes for storage, a full-length mirror, a desk separate from the table for meals, a well equipped kitchen (for lovers of cooking), quality crockery good enough to invite friends, blackout curtains in the bed room.
These are the criteria I have used in equipping this apartment.


« The apartment is beautifully appointed with quality furniture, spacious living areas, spotlessly clean and superbly located near the old town. You can walk to the key attractions of Lyon from here and there are restaurants and bars galore as well as a huge variety of shops to cater for every taste. Laurent is an extremely charming and obliging host who has provided a very detailed guide with his recommendations for places to eat and listings of specialty shops with accompanying maps showing their locations. We have no hesitation in highly recommending his apartment for your stay in Lyon. » Rivez, USA

« My husband and I stayed in Laurent's lovely apartment for only 2 evenings. We so wish it could have been more. Laurent was an extremely gracious host and the book of information he provided was...immense. Truly like nothing I've seen before. We could have stayed for a year and never had a question about where to go or whom to buy from, all of the recommendations were fabulous. Truly I cannot say enough about this. To be in another country (our first time in France) with limited French and have so much information was a real gift. » Kim, USA

« Accueil très sympathique de Laurent, appartement calme et idéalement placé, salon accueillant, literie confortable! J'ai passé un séjour très agréable au cœur de la presqu'île. Très bonne idée de Laurent d'avoir laissé à la disposition de ses hôtes un manuel d'accueil dans lequel on retrouve toutes les réponses aux questions qu'on se pose et un répertoire des restaurants du quartier. Je reviendrai avec grand plaisir. » François, France

« Our stay in Lyon and this very spacious apartment was made quite special in a wonderful way because of the location of the apartment, the warm hospitality and helpfulness of Laurent, the landlord, the excellent standard of fittings and equipment within the apartment. We often use rental apartments and this was the best equiped we have ever stayed in. It was very easy to prepare a meal in the kitchen because of the extensive range of cooking utensils, appliances and also condiments supplied. Overall, a very positive experience staying here, would highly recommend it. » Nathan, Australia

« La casa di Laurent è in una posizione invidiabile, a due passi dal Teatro dell'Opera e dal Museo delle Belle Arti. Attraversando il ponte sulla Saona si arriva in un attimo alla città vecchia e dirigendosi verso la collina della Croce Rossa si incontrano locali alternativi e laboratori di giovani designer e stilisti. La casa è bella, ricca di dettagli che denotano il buon gusto del proprietario. Ci siamo trovati bene e la consigliamo. » Umberto, Italia

« We had the absolute pleasure of staying in Laurent's apartment for five wonderful nights in early October. The apartment was exactly as described in a perfect location. You could not have asked for a better equiped apartment with everything you could possibly need for your stay provided for. A special thank you to Laurent for his recommendation of a restaurant for our wedding anniversary . We had a fabulous meal. » Barbara, Canada

« We hadden een vier fantastische dagen in Lyon ! We werden goed ontvangen door Laurent en voelden ons onmiddellijk thuis in zijn appartement. De foto's en de beschrijving klopten volledig! Je weet perfect waar je je aan mag verwachten. Een authentiek appartement met goeie verduisterbaarheid slaapruimtes en goeie bedden. Laurent beheerst de kunst tussen het verlenen van voldoende privacy en gastvrije behulpzame communicatie. » Inès, België
