You probably see a "Carabus Violaceus": a species of beetle endemic in Europe. It sometimes called the violet ground beetle, or the rain beetle is a nocturnal species of a beetle, from a family Carabidae.

Those are ground Beetles (Carabidae) that are quick, long-legged predators, equipped with powerful jaws. They measure about 20-30mm in length.
