Hi I'm Natalie-Joanne and I'm an English student studying in France for my Masters. I speak English and French so feel free to contact me in either language.
We had a wonderful stay at Joane and Madjid's. The apartment was just as beautiful as we expected and they were not only really welcoming, but also very helpful, suggesting things to do (and eat!) in the neighbourhood and all over Lyon.
The host canceled my reservation 27 days before arrival.
This is a light-filled cosy place in a part of Lyon that is convenient to everywhere you might want to walk. The host provides lots of tourist information, a local map of recommended restaurants, bakery, ice cream parlor, & farmer's market.
The guest bed is very comfortable, but since the room faces the street you might want to bring ear plugs to muffle the traffic noise that echoes between the buildings.
Although I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet Joanne, my stay in her apartment was very enjoyable.
Location's great, two minutes walk from Place Terraux. Very convenient for all the sites and places to eat.
Apartment was lovely and clean, we received a great welcome with lots of information to get the best out of our stay.
Joanne and her partner were super nice. They had prepared a package for us that listed places to see and eat and even called a couple of restaurants for us to make reservations.
Joanne and Madjid were really friendly and accommodating, providing us with tips of what to do and (website hidden)-mapping directions for us and generally being such warm hosts :D it was a pity we only stayed 1 night in Lyon, but their recommendation of where to get a good French meal made our stay! thanks again Joanne and Madjid :)
Joanne was very helpful and knowledgable about Lyon. She made our one night stay really pleasant. We wish we could have spent longer.
This is a superb place to stay in Lyon. Joanne and Madjid are very caring. They were there to meet us - showed us around the apartment and had a package of information for us to review. The apartment is great. In a perfect location, clean, has lift to the 5th floor, large/comfortable bed, nice shower, private toilet, large kitchen. The kitchen is fully functional including coffee pot and actual toaster as well as food items. They have a clothes washer and European dryer rack which worked quite well. We tried to leave some extra money for using their printer but they would not take it. They are the perfect hosts and both speak French and English. Stay here if you are in Lyon and you will not be sorry.
Joanne and Madjid were really great hosts. Friendly, generous and so helpful! I felt right at home. They had an information package about Lyon all ready and even printed out more maps for me. They have an amazing apartment, very clean, tidy with wonderful light, in a really nice central area of the city. I had a great time hanging out with them and I'm glad to have made some new friends!
They were a delight. Helpful, kind and generous with lots of good information about Lyon. The flat was bright and comfortable and perfect for my stay.
Lyon is a great city. make sure to hire bikes on their city system as it's a great way to get around.
Joanne and her partner were really cool people. I had a great time hosting them.
Joanne and her partner rented our condo for 2 nights while we were out of town. I returned to see them off at check out and enjoyed meeting them. We shared stories about our travels and agreed we both like Airbnb. I was pleased to see they had taken very good care of our place, and treated like their own. We would gladly host them again.
Lovely couple to have in my home. I think they had a great time exploring the city. They arrived the day of a BIG heat wave but were brave enough to get out there. Natalie and Madj were tidy, and respectful of my home. Felt very secure leaving them with a key to come and go.
Joanne and Madjid are super nice people! They knowlendge about Lyon will help you a lot if its your first time there. They are the best host I met ever!!!
The apartment well located and totally lovely and clean, something what you can love at first sight!
Hope we can come back again!
I met Natalie when I stayed her in Lyon. She was great! She took the time to show me
around Lyon. And had maps and lists of places to eat and see ready fore when I got there. I had so much fun in Lyon because of them.
I was very excited in the summer because Natalie came to Vancouver for visit. I got to show her around my hometown.
I am very lucky to have met great people like Natalie. Coolest and sweetest chick ever!
I lived with her for 6 months and I could not ask for a better person to live with. She's tidy, fun, considerate and is willing to help out in any way she can. She's also hilarious and always willing to have a good time.
