Wonderfully quirky and very comfortable Inn. Exceptionally beautiful location with views of St Jean & Notre Dame de Fourviere cathedrals from the flat. The owners Beatrice and her husband were so nice and helpful. We were on the 5th floor,there are no elevators and they helped us with our very heavy luggage. The bedroom was very comfortable church bells ringing...

We stayed two nights in the Cote Ouest apartment. The location of the apartment is fantastic - right in the heart of the old city. It is also possible to walk to other parts of the city. Not far is Rue du Boeuf which has a great selection of restaurants. The apartment is very small, comprised of three areas: the...

Have just enjoyed a 3 night stay at Cote Sud with a group of 3. We found the position most convenient arriving by train the metro is a short walk across the front of the cathedral to the apartment. I would agree with others that it is not the place to stay if you have mobility issues, but we found...

We have kept wonderful memories of our week in this apartment. Ideal spot to be immersed in the fascinating Vieux Lyon and also ideally situated to explore the rest of the city, as the metro is only a few minutes away. The farmers' market on the banks of the Saône and the Place Bellecour are walking distance. From the apartment,...

This was, without a doubt, our favorite B & B in three countries during our trip. If I could move there tonight, I would. I think I would be happy to live there forever! The apartment is located in the old section of town which is very enchanting. As you walk into the passageway through the old wooden door, people...

First up, this is pretty much the worst place to get to by car. It's easy enough to find, but there is nowhere to stop to unload luggage. It is on a street that you can't drive down and the next street over is one lane and far too busy to stop on. After driving past and realising this, you...

This is the place to stay if you want to be in the very heart of Old Lyon. With the two cathedrals on the doorstep, and the vibrancy of the immediate area, then look no further. There are a considerable number of stone steps to climb, but we managed them, and both of us aged 70 plus! The stunning views...

On a lovely cobbled street just next to Cathedral Saint Jean you will find this charming apartment. Perfectly set up for a couple and with the potential for a third person on the mezzanine, you will be delighted by views to the cathedral across rooftops and most spectacular to the Basilica on the hill. The accommodation is set up very...
