A small studio like a cocoon, warm and cozy, under the roofs of the prettiest place in Lyon! Enjoy its ultra central location, bistro terraces, museums, restaurants and typical neighborhoods, all within walking distance!

The space

This studio is located on the same landing as our apartment, but it is independent.

It is under the roofs, on the 5th floor (the elevator will take you to the 4th floor, then it will have to climb a floor by feet), and is about 15m2 on the ground.

It is composed of a main room with small kitchenette, as well as a room of water with toilet.

It overlooks Place Sathonay, a small square at the foot of the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, in the peninsula between the Rhone and the Saone. The Place des Terreaux with the Town Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts, as well as the famous "fresco of Lyonnais", are 2 minutes on foot. And during the festival of lights, around December 8, you are in the heart of the event!

The area is very well connected by bus C3, C13 (coming directly from Part-Dieu railway station), C18, S6 (going up to La Croix-Rousse), 31 (going to Perrache station), metro " Hôtel de Ville "and VéloV and Autolib 'stations just at the foot of the apartment.

Its large window faces west (overlooking the hill of Fourvière and the Croix-Rousse, and magnificent light in the setting sun). In the lively district, you will find numerous small shops, many very good restaurants, and nice walks to walk on the banks of the Rhone or Saône (we are right in the middle of the peninsula)!

The studio is equipped with a real bed in 140, with a comfortable mattress and a warm duvet. We provide sheets, gloves, towels and toiletries.

You will also find a wardrobe with hangers, blankets, two large umbrellas if needed, a broom, an iron and ironing board, board games, several countries for the catch, and mosquito catches (it can be useful in summer) ...

The kitchenette is composed of a sink, a fridge and 2 electric plates. You will find plates, glasses, bowls, cutlery, pots and pans, as well as a kettle and coffee maker. We leave at your disposal coffee, tea, herbal teas and sugar so that you can prepare yourself a good breakfast!

Finally, the bathroom includes toilet, shower, washbasin, towels, gloves, shampoo, shower gel, hairdryer and toiletries.

You will also find in the studio books, reviews, plans and tourist brochures, an English-French dictionary, enough to write ...

We will send you a wi-fi code, which will appear in your booking confirmation.

Use the different maps of the city and transport, as well as informative documents about businesses and activities in Lyon, good deals, loyalty cards and coupons: you can use everything!

First and foremost, this room is in a VERY nice location in Lyon. However, this aspect of the apartment is the only good part... Upon arrival, the window seemed to have been left open all day. As the unit is on the top floor, the room was at least 85-90 degree Fahrenheit. In the heat of Lyon in August this was very underwhelming and non-accommodating. In fact, we immediately set our luggage down and went to the ice cream place down the street as we were sweating so much. Online in the description, the owners indicated that Wifi and a fan are provided, upon arrival we quickly realized this was not the case. The Wifi was only accessible from the toilet, literally. The owners had even had written down the username and password for another local Wifi network, which unfortunately also failed. From what it seemed like, the apartment's Wifi connection came through the neighboring apartment, which the owner's reside in. We found a small desk fan in the closet the size of one's hand. When we plugged it in, it immediately began shaking and rattling, so much that if one didn't hold it, it would rattle off the table. We were afraid it would start a fire. The fan blew out little air and was incredibly loud. We left the blind over the window to prevent the heat from coming in yet the apartment still heated up. My cosmetics and deodorant even began to melt! On our second day, I emailed the owner to ask for a working fan, to which she replied she wouldn't be able to get me one, but to "try putting my cosmetics and deodorant in the refrigerator"... Overall, if I was asked, I would not recommend this apartment. The price is great, but a fan, a heavy-duty one at that, is a must in the heat and the apartment's top-floor location. We were very disappointed that the owners weren't more accommodating. Lyon is an amazing city though, just beware of where you rent!

Perfect accommodation for a short trip in Lyon. The location is central and pretty close to a lot of restaurants and bars. The room was decorated with a lot of attention to detail. We had a lovely night in Lyon. The communication with Mathilde was excellent!! Thanks

This flat is exactly what it claims to be. Luxury it is not but if you want a cheap, friendly studio in decent spot it's ideal. I was by myself for a week and was happy enough and happy to chill in apartment but if you in couple it's not somewhere to hang out (which is fine as can just go down to the square and have a beer or coffee). Area is fun for me as enjoy a bit of noise but in the heatwave with windows open your entertainment was the guys playing hip hop in the Place until 2am. Like I said, for me it was great but it's honest to say it's not a quiet flat. The library was really cool. Unfortunately, I'm travelling on so couldn't buy any of the stuff for sale but would have done otherwise. Btw, Mathilde the host was awesome and couldn't be nicer. Kept in touch all week via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and was genuinely keen to check i was okay. Brillant TBF. On balance would highly recommend but it's exactly what it looks like. A tiny studio in cool part of town with zero frills.

We absolutely loved staying at Marie's and Francois' place! The studio is located on an amazing little square with many cafés in the middle of the center! We were able to do everything by foot and loved walking around in the lively neighborhood! The studio itself is cute and has a wonderful view all over Lyon! Also the communication with Marie was very easy and she was very flexible and welcoming! We will definitely be back! Thanks again Marie and Francois!:)

Very cute rooftop studio! There was a heat wave in France at the time so it was a little hot, but overall an enjoyable stay. Marie was very nice and friendly

Clean, and very close to exciting parts of town, but incredibly small and has a strange water system (complete with jury-rigged sponge in the pipes above the sink to catch leaks). Good if you're in town for a couple of days and want to stay in a nice location, but I would not recommend it for trips longer than that. Almost no space to prepare meals (but close to some nice restaurants).
