Everything is perfect. All the details in the apartment inspired me so much. And their friend Alvaro is so heartwarming. Only "perfect" can describe this experience.
This is a very spacious, well-equipped, clean, comfortable apartment located in an attractive part of the city. Croix Rousse, on an elevated site overlooking the old city, has a relaxed neighbourhood ambiance. It is within walking distance of the old city, with good public transport (bus and metro) links, if walking is not your thing, or if you do not have the energy to climb the many steps up from the old town.
The apartment is on a quiet street, close to bus stops and metro station. There is a good supermarket around the corner and plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on adjoining streets. The photos on the website give a very accurate representation of the apartment. The high ceilings make the place very airy, which was great on hot days. Absence of air conditioning was not an issue.
Ophélie and Julian were good hosts. Arrangements for arrival and departure were uncomplicated and everything worked out as planned.
We were a family of four (two teenage children). We enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
Ophélie is an extremely helpful host. The apartment is perfectly situated in the beautiful city of Lyon. We also liked that the apartment was a real home with a fantastic coffee machine, spices and so on.
The apartment was wonderful and spacious. Looks just like the pictures. Great location in a quiet neighborhood and by the metro. The hosts were super helpful and responded to messages promptly. They even helped us reserve a cab for check out.
This is a lovely apartment. Close to supermarkets, restaurants and a large morning market. The apartment was clean and tidy and the whole apartment was very comfortable. All 5 of us fit perfectly, the apartment is a fantastic size. We do highly recommend.
Apartment is clean, in good location, below is just to U-Express, nice supermarket and within walking distance many nice restaurants. We were lucky to stay on weekends to enjoy the farmers' market in the morning. Ophilie and Julian greeted us on check-in and explain everything. Really nice couple with a boy with the prettiest blue eyes.
Logement très agréable, conforme aux photos. Quartier très agréable et très calme.
Merci pour le livret d'accueil, très bonnes adresses et complet.
Nous le recommandons sans hésitation.

About the Host, Ophélie Et Julian
Tout d'abord, nous serons très heureux de vous chouchouter pendant votre séjour!
Nous sommes un jeune couple français-allemand. Nous nous sommes rencontrés en Irlande (Cork) , où nous avons vécu tous les deux pendant 6 ans.
Le contexte socio-culturel était très riche et gardons un merveilleux souvenir de cette expérience. Nous souhaitons continuer à vivre dans cet état d'esprit en hébergeant des personnes de tous horizons.
Nous serons ravis de vous communiquer les bonnes adresses sur Lyon car nous adorons la ville et nous connaissons très bien notre quartier!
Nous avons un fils de 2 ans super sociable (il a maintenant l'habitude de voir du monde!)
