    Excellent large apartment and a very convenient location for exploring Lyon. We were a family group of 4, including a teenager and a 79 year old and we all liked it! I'd stay there again.

Prestige French style apartment, 90 sqm, on the last floor with elevator, for up to 8 people and with balcony. Spacious, quiet, bright and stylish, you will be seduced by its mixture of traditional and modern atmosphere. Its typical Lyon style with its wooden floor, high ceilings and fireplaces, combined with the modernity of an open living space, the latest equipments, and a trendy decoration make this place incredibly friendly and welcoming. The whole interior and its fittings are designed for maximum comfort and convenience. Facing South and on the top floor, the apartment is very bright and quiet. In the heart of Lyon, right next to all public transports and amenities, 5 minutes from place Bellecour and from the old town!
