My husband and I spent two nights at Les Loges Vieux Lyon (Trois Maries apartment) during our 2 week trip to France and we wish we could have stayed longer! Our apartment was exceptional, unlike any place I have stayed before - the perfect mix of historic and and modern. It is a self contained apartment with kitchen, very clean, safe, and right in the heart of the Vieux Lyon. It is actually situated just off one of the areas celebrated "traboules" (small passage ways that date back to Roman times used to transport silk in inclement weather is what I learned). There are restaurants, shops and theatre just steps away and it is also perfectly situated for a hike (or train ride) up the mountain to see the Basilique Notre Dame de Fouviere and the Roman Ruins. We also enjoyed walks along the river right in front of the apartment and a visit to the more modern part of the city is just across a short bridge. The owner Jean Luc warmly greeted us on our arrival and made excellent, genuine recommendations for our stay. Originally, Lyon was just a quick pit stop on our journey to and from perhaps better known parts of France, but now - we would consider a trip back just to visit Lyon (3 days were not enough!) and stay here again - perhaps try out one of their other apartments.
