The BnB was two long stairs cases above ground level, the street noise a problem late into the evening and early morning hours, breakfast was a bare minimum, air conditioning though advertised was sketchy(a portable unit which required the window to stay open??), so adequate was the best I can say for the Violette. Long distance parking was a problem... More

Just returned from an Italian vacation and stayed 3 nights with Elisabeth at Le Violette and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was huge by Italian standards with a private bathroom which was also huge. Lots of room to relax and spread out and the shower was very good. The breakfast is very good by Italian standards and varied... More

Stayed 5 nights in corner room. Establishment in nothing fantastic internally, have to walk up 2 flights of stairs (quite common in a place like Lucca). Room was generous in size, bathroom is tight but useable. I believe there are only 5 rooms of which 2 have private bathrooms. Being on the corner of a thoroughfare into the city you... More

Elisabeth is a wonderful host, she speaks perfect English and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and very clean with comfy beds. The bathroom was big and the shower worked very well. The breakfast was varied and plentiful with good coffee. A very good place to stay within the city walls. It can be a bit noisy... More

This gave me a very homey feeling.... The host is very friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and comfortable. We stayed at Lucca for one night and had a good rest before moving to Florence. I liked this B&B very much. The location is very good, especially if you carry a lot of luggage. Because this is quite close... More

I stayed 3 nights back in early August at Le Violette, and couldn't say enough about it. The location was fantastic, as I arrived by train and was able to walk anywhere I wanted to. Sure there was noise off the street, but once I shut the windows, I barely heard much at all, honestly. I found my room to... More

Thank you Elizabeth for your warm welcome and for give us so many tips and recommendations! The location is just perfect, in the heart of the city centre and a few steps away from the railway station. I stayed with my girlfriend Carla, the room was very wide and nice, no luxury but nice firnitures and a very confortable matrass.... More

Le Violette is so well located for a visit to Lucca, just inside the wall, very easy to walk to from the station. Elisabeth is a great source of information about Lucca, her dining recommendation was perfect for me. I felt like a guest in her home, so much so that when I left, neither one of us thought about...

Wonderful little B & B in a great location just inside the walls of Lucca very close to the railway station -- a perfect location to both relax and enjoy Lucca and to visit the surrounding towns such as Pisa and Florence. The owner Elizabeth will add to your experience with good recommendations for dining and things to see and... More

Le Violette is the perfect place to stay during a visit to Lucca. We found that the B&B offers the perfect mixture of charm, amenities, affordability, location and customer service that we look for when we travel. Tucked just inside the old city walls and centrally located for a stroll into the main piazza's, Le Violette couldn't be in a... More
