La Tour B&B - Quaint, good value rental in Vieux Lyon

Want to stay in a fascinating part of Lyon? Then this is it. Stay in one of those ancient tower apartments in the old part of Lyon at a very reasonable price.

Stephan and Patrick the owners have done a great job fitting out a very challenging space - bedroom on one level, bathroom (small) on mezzanine level and kitchen on yet a higher level. Lots of stone spiral stairs so not for those visitors who don't like stairs. There is everything that closes and shuts in the place !

The aparment has 17 windows where you can pear out over the rooftops of old Lyon and see how people live in the tiny apartments and rooms in modern day 'vieux Lyon'.

Stephan even offered to take us on a history tour of the nearby streets one morning which was just fascinating. And, he took us to a wonderful restaurant just around the corner that we simply would not have known about. We also asked him to book for us a restaurant that was more 'establishment' and we certainly got that (see my reviews of restaurants in Lyon)!.

We stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed our time here as it was so different to any other place we stayed in during our 5 weeks in France.
