About our home

This delightful art-filled 72m2 ground floor flat has been completely redecorated with quirky vintage touches, without losing its character and period features. It is equipped with an ultra-modern kitchen, a double bedroom, a recently renovated bathroom in polished concrete with walk-in shower and oversized rain fall shower head, an office which includes a mezzanine with double bed as well as 2 computers with fibre optic Internet, an artist's studio adjoined by a utility room with washing machine and a handy dressing room. Spacious sitting room with large screen smart TV, DVD player and CD sound system, which opens onto a lovely secluded South-facing garden with terrace including table, chairs and parasol.

The flat is on the ground floor of a quiet building with only two other flats above. NO EVENTS OR PARTIES please!

It is situated in the very trendy and bustling Croix-Rousse neighbourhood, an area protected by UNESCO. Typical French street market 6 days a week and all shops and amenities within walking distance. Countless restaurants and bars close by. Tube station 10 minutes away, bus stop to centre of town 5 minutes away.

Lyon, the capital city in France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, sits at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers and is located between the Beaujolais and Côtes du Rhône vineyards. Its centre reflects 2,000 years of history from the Roman Amphithéâtre des Trois Gaules, medieval and Renaissance architecture in Vieux Lyon, to the modern Confluence district on Presqu'île peninsula. Traboules, covered passageways between buildings, connect Vieux Lyon and La Croix-Rousse hill. Its colours (ochre, coral, orange, burgundy and yellow) reflect the sun, giving it an Italian touch.
Considered the French capital of gastronomy, it boasts thousands of restaurants. There are many places to visit, such as the Fourvière basilica and the Roman amphitheatre with great views of the city, the beautiful Renaissance Old Town, St Jean cathedral and an impressive Fine Arts Museum to name but a few. Lyon is also very well served by the high speed TGV train (2 hours to Paris and 1h30 to Marseille) and local trains as well as the busy international Saint-Exupéry airport.

Feel free to contact us should you have any questions!

Please note that NO SMOKING is allowed in the flat. 3 NIGHTS MINIMUM.
