If you want to be in the heart of old Lyon then this is the apartment for you. We loved the location and view we got from this charming apartment. The apartment had a seperate bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchen. The kitchen was well equiped,large fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. Little extras like sugar, tea, coffee and oil along with the complimentary orange juice made it even more perfect. Bathroom was modern and very clean and hair dryer was a bonus.We wish we had of stayed longer, 2 nights wasnt long enough to see all the sights in Lyon. The 79 stairs to the apartment was a bit tiring at times especially when carrying our very large suitcases but it really is worth the stay here.Beatrice was very kind and helpful with where to go and eat and what sights to see in our limited time. I would definately stay here again.

We stayed in the Cote Quest for 2 nights and it was amazing. It is well located in the middle of the best food streets in Lyon and with a metro station nearby. Apart from the amount of stairways to climb, the apartment was very clean and tidy with a beautiful view of the old town. Do look out for the night view of the castle and church from your bedroom window. Thank you Beatrice for the kind accommodation and restaurant arrangements for helpless tourist like us. Thumbs up!

Had 4 nights in this very well equipped and nicely furnished apartment in the delightful Vieux Lyon area. It's in a great location next to the cathedral (with its lovely bells day and night) and about a 1 minute walk from Vieux Lyon metro station and 5 min walk across River Saone to Bellecouer. Perfect for the two of us tho' might be cosy for four? Rue St Jean is parallel to Rue de Boeuf with v good restaurants - thanks to Beatrice's recommendation we had a superb meal at Jeremy Galvan's.

Many thanks to Beatrice for her kind assistance when we stayed in the Cote Sud apartment during the Fete des Lumieres. We enjoyed our time in Lyon very much and this central apartment is in an ideal location for seeing all that Lyon has to offer. Very comfortable, welcoming and has all the amenities for a perfect stay.

We were fortunate to spend five nights here in the 'cote sud' appartment. The building is old but well renovated and the place has all the modern conviences. The furniture is stylish and we found the bed to be hard (which we like). At night the only thing one hears is the hourly striking of the Cathedral's bells.

Having an appartment instead of a hotelroom ads to the feeling of being one with the Lyonnais and not feel a tourist.

Set in the 1st arrondissement it is dead centre Lyon it is close to the public transport system and very good resaurants and bakeries.

Mrs. Breuilh is a charming lady and allways willing to help out. We would love to return here, although honesty permits that chanches are small as there are so many other cities to visit.

And yes, there are four flights of stairs... but we soon got used to them and with eating all that good food in Lyon one can only be grateful of the absence of an elevator ;-)

I thank you for this kind message. Yes, the apartments are located, Place Saint Jean, heart of the historical district. If, you are looking for them to have a visit , it is in the 5th arrondissement and not in the 1rst one as it is said. Have a good day.
