The apartment (83 m2) is on the first floor of an old building (from 1936) which has two floors but no lift.

More about this property

High ceilings of almost three metres give the apartment a spacious and pleasant character.

The apartment comprises two bedrooms with oak floors (each with a double bed), a bathroom with a large shower and two washbasins, a separate toilet, and a kitchen (with oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine).

There is also a large living room (29 m2) which has two windows and is very bright and sunny, plus a lounge area (with a sofa bed for two persons), and a dining room.

Gas heating and hot water.


Our Neighbourhood

The apartment is located in the Montchat district, which forms the eastern part of the 3rd arrondissement of Lyon. It is primarily residential, with some beautiful villas, and the tranquil atmosphere of a small provincial town.

More about the neighbourhood

After being the capital of the Gauls under the Roman Empire, a great cultural and trading community during the Renaissance, as well as a dynamic industrial breeding ground in the nineteenth century (silk, books, business, money, etc), Lyon has become a major European metropolis and has been included in UNESCO's World Heritage list, where it has joined such prestigious cities as Venice, Prague and Saint Petersburg.

A Geenee Member visited from 30 Jul 2013 to 18 Aug 2013, and said :

The apartment is located in a very nice, silent part of Lyon called Montchat. We enjoyed riding the very cheap city bikes which is located all over the city. It took only about 20 min to bike to the very center of Lyon. The apartment is very spacious if you're only two people and even 4 people could easily live there. Nice, clean and well equipped place! And the city of Lyon is very charming and is really worth a visit.

We had a lovely time in Lyon staying in Bruno and Stephane's apartment. They picked us up at the airport in Lyon, and made a wonderful dinner for us on the first evening. We felt very welcomed by these two frenchmen. They even got us a lot of recommendations for places to eat and see, so we couldn't ask for a better introduction to the city.
