March long weekend Availability

Read the latest review from our guests on Trip Advisor! Pinch Me!!!! Little Violet is unmistakably the most gorgeous place we have ever stayed. Perfect for couples who appreciate fabulous food, vibrant interiors, peaceful surroundings, and delightful hosts. Charmaine and Eric have thought of everything needed for a relaxing time away. Selfishly we hesitated to write such a raving review as this oasis with Charmaine's home made delicacies (understatement) is bound to reach cult status and before too long all the w&€:/- will be booking way in advance and we may not get a reservation next time! But seriously, it would be a shame not to encourage others to enjoy a snippet of paradise. Heartfelt thanks to you, Charmaine and Eric. Lizzy and Stefan
