About This Listing
Welcome home, a small hideaway in Perrache, Lyon's central hub.
Quiet and cozy, anchored by a golden stone wall, our lovely duplex can comfortably accommodate up to seven people, family or friends.
Located smack in the center of Lyon, by Perrache, between Confluence and Bellecour, we propose this quiet haven meters away from the agitation of city life.
The flat is a lovely, cozy duplex which can sleep up to 7, quietly located on the inside courtyard of an old building, where you will be protected from the noise of the city.
The duplex, organized along an exposed stone wall made in golden stones from the Beaujolais region, was created by renovating and joining the former stables and the mezzanine floor used for stocking hay.
The duplex includes:
- on the ground floor, a fully equipped kitchen opened on the living room, with a convertible couch that can sleep 2; a separate bedroom which can sleep 3, with a double bed and a single bed (stacked)
- on the first floor, the bathroom with a bathtub, a large desk/office if you need to work during your stay, and the master bedroom with a double bed.
The flat is fully equipped for your stay, whether for a week-end or a longer stay : wifi internet, TV, dish-washer, etc.
Finally, it is ideally situated both to enjoy the city or to explore around it: right by Perrache, you will be meters away from all public transportation in Lyon (Metro, Tramways and Buses), from the trains (including those to Paris) as well as close to the highway. Perfect to stay in and getaway.
The neighborhood is still gritty but is undergoing huge renovations.
And if you're driving, it's really easy to park in the neighborhood!
We rent the whole flat. You will there have unrestricted access to everything.
Interaction with Guests
We will be present to welcome you upon your arrival, and our always available to talk about our beloved city and share its secrets !
However, we do not live on the premises, but a few blocks away.
The duplex is located in the center of Perrache, an neighborhood that is fast changing. Today, the former prisons that dominated the area are being converted in a new university campus. Popular and gritty, it is changing for the better.
The main advantage of the area is its location and its easy access. You will only be a 10 min walk from the new neighborhood of Confluence or the old town and Bellecour.
Still, the area lives. The Brasserie George, opened in 1936, will welcome you at any time, while the Rem's, just a few blocks away, makes the best burgers in town.
Perrache is the nervous center of Lyon. You can get there by:
- Train, including directs TGV from Paris
- Metro (line A)
- Tramways (line T1 and T2)
Once in Perrache, the flat is only two blocks away!
Other Things to Note
To keep the costs of the stay down, please note that we do not charge extra for cleaning. Therefore, we do expect you to clean after yourself before you leave.
Our only rule is that you treat our flat like it's yours, and that you have a great time in Lyon!
Je ne peux aller que dans les sens des autres commentaires. L'appartement est parfait, la deco est très agréable et les petites touches "comme à la maison" ( jeux de société, guides de voyage, consoles à disposition ) aident à se sentir à l'aise immédiatement!
Pour les hôtes, ils sont parfaits. Toujours disponibles en cas de question, même le soir. Ils se sont parfaitement adaptés à notre emploi du temps ( horaires d'arrivée et de départ). Tous ces "petits détails" qui ont rendu notre séjour bien plus chaleureux. J'ai déjà prévenu Quentin et Gauthier que je resejournerai chez eux avec grand plaisir!
Quentin and Gautier's communications with us were always prompt and helpful. Their apartment is tastefully decorated and very well equipped. You do feel like you are in your own "home away from home". Despite the accommodation being on a courtyard, we found its location to be quiet, especially thanks to its improved sound-proofing. The bed was particularly comfortable! The immediate local area is in the process of being renovated ("gentrified?") and it is very well connected to the rest of Lyon and beyond with direct trains from Perrache station to Geneva, Paris and the South of France. We would recommend this apartment which is good value for money.
The host was most welcoming upon arrival and provided helpful information to make our stay easy and confortable. The apartment was very clean and just the same as portraded on air b+b plus more.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment as it is within close walking distance to everything.
Geoff and family
Super organisation, appartement très propre et bien pensé. Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour et remercions Quentin et Gautier pour nous avoir accueillies avec soin.
Quentin and Gautier are wonderful hosts. They reached out with suggestions as to the easiest way to their house, and were very accommodating about helping us get situated. They were friendly and very helpful giving us advice about what to do in and around Lyon.
Their condo is very comfortable and clean, and our family of five stayed there for two weeks without feeling crowded. The location is amazing, only a few blocks from the Perrache station which has access to trains, metros, trams, and rental cars. It is also walking distance from lots of other attractions in Lyon, and we found we could do tons of things during the day and get back easily. The condo is in a building with courtyard, and is located on the far side of the courtyard which prevents one from being bothered by street traffic.
Overall it was a wonderful experience, and we would recommend it to anyone.
Séjour d'une nuit extra en plein coeur de Lyon à deux pas de la gare et du métro. Les hôtes vraiment disponibles et serviables, hyper à l'écoute.
L'appartement est un coin de paradis propre et joliment décoré.
Vraiment RAVIE de cette découverte.
Nous avons passe un très bon séjour dans le duplex de Quentin et Gautier. L'appartement correspondait à l'annonce. En effet, nous sommes partis à 7 et nous avons eu autant de couchage et d'espace que nécessaire. Quentin et Gautier avait prépare un petit guide très détaille avec plein d'idées de sorties (guide teinte d'humour soit dit en passant). Ils nous ont même proposés de venir à notre rencontre pour nous présenter Lyon. Ils ont été très disponibles et lorsque nous leur avons pose une question, ils ont cherchés tous les moyens pour nous contacter. Quentin et Gauthier mettent également à disposition des jeux de sociétés et pas mal de DVD pour égayer les soirées :-). Pour résumer, je recommande fortement ce logement aux futurs voyageurs!
