Violets Cottage has two good sized bedrooms that sleep four.
It has the most spectacular views of the countryside and the commune of Saint Julien Le Petit. Outside there is garden furniture and a shady awning that extends over the patio area.
So whether it is too hot or we get the odd rain shower you can still sit out and enjoy a meal or a glass of wine.
Violets Cottage could easily sleep more people but this is not what we are about.
We believe the more discerning guest appreciates the seclusion and relaxation of
the cottage without it being too crowded.
Through the double doors you enter into the spacious open plan lounge/diner/kitchen.
The rustic walls and wooden floors with beams above give this lovely room charm and character in abundance.
The view is to die for from this airy light room.
