About this listing

I consider myself lucky to live in such a beautiful city as Lyon!
One of my favourite passtime is chilling out with friends at a café terrace where we can appreciate a nice glass of wine.

The room, overlooking the courtyard, and because of the narrow streets of the old quarter lacks a bit of natural light, but offers a calm and restful atmosphere.

The Neighborhood

Lyon's old quarter has been designated a World Heritage Site.

Some events hosted by the city, such as the spectacular Fête des Lumières (December) to the Nuits Sonores electronic music festival (May), rival anything France’s capital can offer.

J'ai la chance d'habiter cette merveilleuse ville de Lyon. J'y ai de précieux amis avec lesquels je partage d'agréables moments de farniente. De nombreux endroits s'y prêtent, telle la guinguette "Aux Pieds Humides", en bord de Saône où nous nous retrouvons souvent le samedi autour d'un pot de blanc (le pot lyonnais a une contenance de 46 cl), après avoir fait notre marché et finir souvent chez les uns et les autres pour un repas convivial et sur le pouce.
