Nikkis vegetarian cuisine

Our home-cooked food is made with love from our own veg garden whenever possible and is a fusion of vegetarian & vegan world cuisine. Nikki has even published a recipe book which is available to buy when you’re here or online from Amazon (“Under The Lime Tree.Cook!”).
There’s no wake-up call here, so breakfast at your leisure where and when you like and why not book a delicious Vegetarian or Vegan Evening Meal before you go out for the day!

Holistic Spa Treatments

The Holistic Spa Treatments offered at Under The Lime Tree are a great way for you to relax, unwind, give yourself a break and take a little of that “me” time you’ve been promising yourself for so long! There’s something for everyone here, so it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, young or old, living locally or visiting from abroad, because we all need to find the time to stop, take stock, and recharge our batteries. Don’t wait for illness or injury to take hold, or for stress to set in, or occasional bad habits to become the norm, book yourself in for a dedicated treat that’s meant just for you! Advance booking highly recommended.

Activities and transport

The local area is great for medieval towns, magnificent chateaux, adventure parks, lakes for water sports, museums, the valley of monkeys, animal parks, and the famous Futuroscope at Poitiers.

There’s no public transport available so hire a car or bring your own. The nearest town is 3 km and has a bank, hairdressers, bakeries and a small supermarket. Angouleme is the nearest large train station.
