Admire the architecture in this UNESCO-listed airbnb
One of the main reasons why people flock to Lyon is to marvel at its Medieval and Renaissance architecture. If this sounds like you, then consider staying in The Vaubecour, a UNESCO-listed building that dates back to 1890. This Airbnb is tucked away on the fourth floor (there’s a lift available) and the wood flooring and chimney give a sense of its history. Located just 100 metres (328 feet) from the Saône River in the Ainay district of Lyon, the Peninsula, St. John’s Cathedral and the Basilica of Fourvière are all within walking distance. The Vaubecour is also close to some of the best restaurants in the area, such as Saint Georges, Têtedoie and Le Bistrot d’Abel. Or, for home-cooked food, try the host’s brunch, which is made with delicious local products and includes freshly squeezed fruit juices and homemade jam.
