Had a wonderful 4 nights here. Elizabeth couldn't have been nicer. Breakfasts are very Italian, and the cappuccino is delicious. Having a laundry is so helpful. Elizabeth even helped with it. We had a lovely, bright room with two windows. It has been very warm in Lucca so we were grateful there was a very efficient air conditioner in our...

Elisabeth Warren is an amazing B&B owner! She helped us to arrange several tours in the Tuscany area which made our Italian vacation wonderful. We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, but Elizabeth is the most gracious and helpful hostess that we have ever experienced. We felt like we were family and everything was extremely comfortable. We will...

Elisabeth is such a lovely, friendly host... very welcoming and full of information! Good location within the walls but not too far from station. Good wifi signal and breakfast. My room was large, with attached bathroom, and also quiet. Excellent value for money.

The host, Elisabeth was really nice and helpful. Our stay was sufficiently enjoyable, and I don't regret staying there. However, I don't think we would stay here again. While one room was very nice and spacious, the other was quite cramped and not very light. The bathroom was outside both of the rooms and was small with a funky door...

People from all around the world who are delightful and happy to stay at a Bed and Breakfast in the city center, near the train station with perfect price quality relation.

I recommend Le Violette! Charming and clean place, perfect to visit Lucca and its many artistic and culinary attractions. Good location just inside the walls and very close to the train station. Elisabeth really makes the difference with her politeness and smile, she's helpful and kind so I felt almost at home.

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...

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.

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The B&B Le Violette was recently bought from a very social and dynamic Signora who, having turned 70 years old, was ready to retire. This signora found in the current owner, Elisabeth Warren, a similarity that satisfied her desire to pass on the B&B to someone who would enjoy and manage it as she did. We offer a comfortable room and a delightful breakfast. Conveniently located within the intriguing walls of Lucca, yet a minute walk from its train station, we give our guests the best of this charming town as well as the easy accessibility in exploring its surroundings. Free Wi-Fi in the entire B&B. There are free maps to Lucca and its surrounding areas. The host is present at breakfast to give suggestions and advice and is always available by phone for any specific needs. Italian Breakfast is from 7:30am to 10:30am consisting of croissants, bread with butter, jam or nutella, yogurt, cakes and juice with your choice of cappuccino, espresso, tea, caffe latte, American coffee or hot chocolate. The host will usually encounter the guests at check-in and leave them the keys to the building, the B&B and their room so they may come and go as they please. Checkin: from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Please contact us in advance for early or late arrivals. Checkout: before 11:00am ... more   less
