Welcome

Set in the picturesque Charente countryside, Limetree House is an absolute jewel of a Bed and Breakfast (chambres d'hotes). Its beautiful buildings, large gardens and quiet location will guarantee you a serene and memorable stay. Thomas and Janet moved to Montemboeuf in 2017, after 20 years working in the tourism and customer services industry in the Provence area of Southern France. Soon after moving here, the only B&B in the village was sold and no longer run as a chambres d'hotes. Thomas and Janet decided that their large property just outside the village was a perfect replacement and they set about fully restoring and refurbishing the traditional French 18th Century house, set in four hectares of gardens, park and pasture. They utilised Thomas’s passion for antiques to decorate the public rooms and all the bedrooms in a Belle Epoque style.

 

Limetree House is in a semi-rural location 800m from Montemboeuf, which is a friendly village with a general store, boulangerie, butcher, pharmacy, restaurant, bar, doctor’s surgery and large open air swimming pool.

 

There is on-site parking at Limetree House, as well as secure garaging for classic cars attending Angouleme for the Ramparts, and for motorcycles and cycles. Livery for horses can also be provided. The property and grounds are also shared with a friendly dog, donkeys, horses and chickens.

Whatever brings you to this beautiful area;  whether it is holidays, house hunting, visiting the local training establishments or catching up with family and friends, your hosts Thomas and Janet  look forward to offering you a very warm welcome and an unforgettable stay.
