Service was extremely helpful, rooms were more spacious than we had anticipated. The bathrooms are tiny, comparable to those on a airplane - not troublesome, unless that is a big factor to you. Only allows three people rooms (we had four people 2 of the 4 nights we stayed) so some stealth maneuvering had to be done.
Location was close to the Train station but farther from everything to see in Lyon. I would have stayed in Vieux Lyon looking back. But we walked most everywhere. Easy to find when using "The Pencil" as a landmark.

... the Old Town has been perfect. Walk out the door and there are so many things to see and do.
Museums abound, walks along streets laden with fashion houses - no possible temptation there as we are already at the limit of airline weight allowances - churches, cathedral, basilica, river cruises - all add to the colours and flavours of such a charming city.
And the people really have been friendly and charming.
Ben loved the long walk in the park ...
Such a lovely morning that we delay setting off and have a potter around Besancon. It is a really charming town and we will definitely come back again. We do discuss idea of staying for a week now but in the end decide to continue south to be sure of hotter weather. South to Lyon, another Mercure chain ...
... felt like being at the snowfields.
We didn't stay long and within half an hour we had descended into undulating country again; 22 degrees again and quite comfortable. We found our way to our apartment booked only last night and it was a winner. In Beaujolais, just north of Lyon, it is in a huge old stone house. Just a small apartment with bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom but very nicely set up and Anna, our host is lovely.
Dinner tonight at l'Auberge ...
... I don't know if I've really come to any conclusions yet though. But I just love his writing and the main character, Lin, and the journey he goes on, the people he meets and the lessons he learns about himself and the world are described so sincerely. I was slightly devastated when I googled it to discover that it is only loosely based on true events, and none of the characters are actually real. He describes the characters in so much details and ...
... and something else to nibble when we sat down and I can say that what the ‘something else’ was still have no idea but it was quite nice, different but nice. Jodes thought it quite funny that I was eating something with no idea what it was, I figured if it wasn’t edible they wouldn’t have given it to me to eat and I’d give it a go.
So after a great day in Lyon we are off to Avignon tomorrow and hopefully I’ll be catching up with my girlfriend Nicki ...
