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 flat/apartment is in a 16th century Renaissance building with a traboule, a word typically of Lyon.
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.
Except for Mondays and Thursdays, a breakfast may be served for an extra 6.50€/a person (hot beverage, baguette (bread), pastry (viennoiseries), homemade cake, homemade jams, butter, orange juice, yogurts).
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 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 minute walk.

About the Host, Fari
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.
