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 flat/apartment is in a 16th century Renaissance building with a traboule, a word typically of Lyon. This word derived of the Latin " trans-ambulare " means literally " getting through "hence the verb trabouler and the name which ensues from it-a "traboule", a passage for the pedestrians, often narrow, beginning with a corridor of entrance and crossing one or several buildings (and/or one or several yards) to connect a street to another one.
Your bedroom contains a double bed of 140x190 (55 in × 75 in). If two people think of feeling at ease there, I can welcome them with no problem at all.
Interaction with Guests
I am happy to share lots of tips and recommendations.
Maps and guides of the city are provided.
Lyon's old quarter has been designated a World Heritage Site.
Lyon also has a vibrant cultural calendar.
Some events hosted by the city, such as the spectacular Fête des Lumières (December) to the Nuits Sonores electronic music festival (May), rival – and locals would contend outshine – anything France’s capital can offer.
There are many bars and restaurants.
The nearest underground station is Métro Vieux Lyon-Cathédrale St Jean. I'll meet you outside the station beside the tourist info point to take you to the flat which is about 3 minutes walk.
How to get to the flat?
By car: the flat is situated in a pedestrian zone in which you cannot get by car. However you could have a free use of my parking spot which normally costs 30 euros/24 hours.
We have to agree on your arrival time beforehand as you need my access card to the car park -Parking St Jean-situated 25 Quai Romain Rolland -69005 Lyon.

Not many. No smoking. No animals (because of allergies). Come home when you like but quietly if it's after 10pm. Shoes off in the hall please. No visitors without asking me first. Enjoy your stay with us! That's it.
Great, awesome & wonderful.
Nothing else needs to be said with a great host, awesome location and a wonderful place to stay.
Fari is a nice person, she willing to help visitors who live here by providing lots of information like guide books etc. Besides, she even helps me to wash and dry my dirty clothes without extra charge, highly appreciate for that. Her home very convenient and is located at the city center. I love the house as it is beautiful and tidy. I have a nice time here. Thanks a lot for Fari by looking after me these days.
What a beautiful and well kept apartment! You can tell that Fari really cares about her place and her guests, everything is clean and comfortable. She was even sweet enough to welcome me with a tray of macarons. The apartment itself is in a perfect location in Vieux Lyon, within an easy walk to many attractions. I felt that Fari went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, and it was a pleasure to stay with her.
Fari est extrêmement soignée, une personne calme qui parle que si l'on y invite.
toute la documentation laissée dans la chambre m'a bien aidée pour la visite de la ville.
Merci à Fari pour son accueil chaleureux . La chambre est très calme , propreté impeccable . La place de parking est vraiment un plus dans cet hébergement .

très bonne expérience!
tout s'est bien passé, Fari est très sympathique et rend le séjour commode
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.
