We stayed at Philippe’s place for almost one month. It was well furnished and clean and he welcomed us with a nice bottle of champagne and provided us with great recommendations. We had a small 8th month old baby with us and Philippe had arranged a baby crib, mattress and tub as well as a chair. He was well equipped and we appreciated it greatly. However I would say we had some difficulty to maneuver a baby up the spiral staircase and we had to tightly fit the crib in the bedroom. The main bedroom is a good size but a bit awkward to fit the crib. The second bedroom is small and is accessed via the first bedroom. This Was a bit tricky when my parents visited. However, we got used to it and after some time we adjusted to it. The space is great for most people but it may be a bit challenging for families with young children. You do need to pass through 4 locked doors that may require keys to get to the apartment and there is a small set of steps up and down if you take the elevator. It can be tricky with a baby stroller. Luckily we always had two people with us so it wasn’t too bad. Hot water is limited so you may have to wait for it to heat again for showers. Outside of those things, everything was great. The Internet and tv worked well, ther was a nice entertainment system to listen to music. there was a nice assortment of coffees in the nespresso machine and teas. There were fresh towels and bath soaps and shampoos like those in a hotel. There were many books around including Many about Lyon they were helpful to read. Location is great with a great view of the River in the office space. It is close to restaurants and shops and metro is 3-4 minutes away. Philippe helped us make a reservation at l’ourson qui boit, a restaurant on the corner of the place and it was an amazing place. Overall we enjoyed our stay! Thank you again.

The apartment was great. Location good. The owners of the apartment were willing to provide the assistance we needed and good to have contact with them about everything that we had a question about.

We stayed at this lovely apartment for the entire month of July. The location is very central and we were able to easily walk to all the beautiful areas of Lyon. The location is also safe, secure and very picturesque. The building itself is beautiful and has alot of old world charm. Phil, our host, was in touch with us throughout our stay and nothing was a problem for him. The apartment itself is lovely - very unique. It is slightly smaller than the photographs would suggest however it was just the two of us and was perfect for our needs. The apartment was very well equipped and comfortable. The winding stairs are rather narrow and take a little bit of getting used to but nothing to worry about. The only challenge we really had was it is obviously very hot in Lyon in July. The aircon in the apartment is for upstairs only. Even when opening the windows it was hard to get some air circulating in the living area and as we both work from home it became very uncomfortable at times. I think this could be easily fixed with a small fan and if you are out and about site seeing (rather than working from the apartment as we did) it may not even be an issue. All in all we had a great month in Lyon and would highly recommend Phil and his property to anyone.

Lyon became home; purely a result of the cozy beautiful home that we stayed in and also the hospitality of the host. Philippe Walker welcomed us extremely warmly, it was raining and I had messaged from the airport that we were on our way, and how happily surprised I was to find him waiting for us outside the apartment building with an umbrella, so very kind really. The apartment was spot clean and honestly better than expected. Very cute and artistic touch to the space. Love the work area over the bed with a breathtaking view - spent loads of time there. Philippe went out of his way to make us comfortable when the city of Lyon had a major wifi issue related to fiber optic management. I cannot thank him enough for checking up us and for going out of his way to suggest solutions. Thank you so so much Philippe. He had amazing suggestions with speciality cuisines and oh yes it was amazing. If I am ever visiting lyon then (if available) this is where I am staying, there's no doubt about that at all. Now the location, absolutely fantastic. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is if you are alone especially to be able to walk to a variety of options whether public transit or food or bars or Hard Rock Cafe or grocery or museums or the river side. I mean just amazing. The uniqueness of the 17th century building that the apartment is in combined with an excellent host and amazing location, what else can you ask for! Thank you again Philippe. Till we meet again, regards.

Great location in the heart of Lyon - lots of shops, restaurants and tourist attractions nearby. A nicely designed flat with all conveniences. A view of the Rhone from one of the bedrooms. Our host Philippe was very reliable - his wife was there to greet us upon arrival and he was kind enough to call a taxi for us at the end of our stay.

Three of us stayed in Philippe's apartment for 13 nights. It's a gorgeous place, beautifully restored with elements of old and new combined. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and transport, it's perfectly located for anyone who wants to explore old and new Lyon by foot. Philippe was a great host, a quick communicator, and a genuinely lovely man. My only other advice would be that the spiral staircase is quite narrow and probably not suitable for elderly guests or small children. Otherwise, a wonderful experience in my favourite city. Thank you, Philippe!!!

I used to travel the world during 25 years and met so many nice and good people. I always found how great is the meaning of welcome, exchanging culture and respect. I am now here back to my "student" city and I am so happy to be able to talk about it, promoting an incredible but still unknow Jewel. I will be happy not only to have you as a Guest but also to ensure you make an unforgetable visit to my city. Nice regards. Phil
