Laurent's apartment is beautiful, we had a great time here. There is a lot to discover in Lyon and the surrounding area has a lot to offer (e.g. a trip to the Beaujolais region). The communication with Laurent was always very good, all in all a perfect holiday!
Laurents apartment located in the quiet village of Rochetaillée north of Lyon is large and airy with a couple of Velux rooftop windows. With public bus around the cornerright it is both convenient and a good choise if you want to discover Lyon and try some of it’s culinary offerings. You avoid the parking fee and you can have an extra glas of wine to your meal by using public transport. I also made it by car to two attractions on my bucket list: The Palais Idéal - an extraordinary example of naïve art architecture in Hauterives and Firminy Vert with the largest facility made by Le Corbusier.
What a wonderful week we had! Laurent‘s home is truly extraordinary within the historic setting and the nice interior. The Saône river banks in 3 minutes walking distance were great for picknicks and trips to Lyon and the little Beaujolais villages very close. With the nice welcome greetings we and our kids felt at home from day one. Thank you so much Laurent, we hope to see you again sometime!
It has been a pleasure to go back to Laurents house at Rochetaillée, everything was perfect, as usual!! Re-discovering Lyon with our children has been a great experience. Thank you Laurent and Laura for having this opportunity again! It was really nice to meet you!!
This was a special place. The home's proximity to the river and to the center of the city made for a dynamic experience. Lyon is a charming and beautiful city. We loved walking around, taking in the scenery, and sampling some delicious food. We were also able to travel around and see much of what southern France has to offer. We recommend it highly! Much thanks to Laurent who made us feel comfortable and welcome.
We had a perfect time in Laurent's beautifully furnished apartment. The historic character of the building, with a stone winding staircase, gave us the impression of living in a French château! Rochetaillée is a peaceful village with good restaurants on the borders of the river Saône. Of course we visited the nearby charming city of Lyon, where you can find a lot of interesting museums, modern architecture as well as picturesque quarters and the two nice rivers Saône and Rhône flowing together in town. We also made day trips, e.g. to Avignon and Mont Ventoux, the famous Le Corbusier town of Firminy and the friendly Beaujolais wine region. This homeswap in France was really very nice!
Très bon échange. Nous nous sommes beaucoup amusés à Lyon et à la charmante maison de Laurent. Très bon point de sejour pour visiter Lyon et sa belle région. Lyon a été une découverte, une ville avec de caractère et histoire, gastronomie et paysage. Merci beacoup pour tout.
Our stay at Rochetaillée sur Saône has been great, the house is cute and very comfortable. Laurent, Laura and Rémi had special care in leaving all type of home comforts to our use, the welcome was super and we have enjoyed their friendly swap! Lyon and his surroundings has offered us all sorts of adventures, discovering the city where cultural and architectural visits can be mixed with children’s entertainment has been the clue to a wonderful family vacation. It has been our first exchange, we are very happy of the experience and we look forward for the next one!! Thank you Laurent, Laura and Rémi for this nice holidays, see you! Jordi, Ona, Nil and Laia
