Who We Are


Lime Wood Group

Lime Wood Group focuses on authenticity and informality of design, food, and service. Starting in 2009 with the opening of Lime Wood, New Forest, we set about creating something a little bit different. We want our guests to feel at home wherever they are, from the peaceful New Forest, to staying at Portetta, our family friendly, ski-in ski-out hotel with breathtaking mountain scenery of Courchevel Moriond, France.


Lime Wood, a boutique country house, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, Hampshire. It’s the perfect hideaway in an ancient forest…a bolt hole that’s easy to get to but hard to leave.

Over 10 years on we are now firmly established as one of the ultimate countryside getaways with recognised national awards under our belt, renowned chefs at the helm of our restaurant, and our own lifestyle magazine.

The ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home. Simple, laid-back luxury.

Laid-back 5* luxury at its best, with Chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder at the helm of the kitchen, pulling together both of their much-admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, the hotel’s relaxed and stylish Italian restaurant. Hartnett & Holder’s food comes with the much-loved Italian approach to eating – where sharing and provenance is everything.

Set within the grounds, you will find the Herb House Spa, an award-winning wellness spa. Designed over three levels, Lime Wood’s Herb House Spa is dedicated to natural well-being and is inspired by its forest surroundings; it instils a sense of calm and serenity – a serious chilling retreat.


Situated in prime position at the foot of the slopes of Courchevel Moriond (1650), Portetta Hotel and Portetta Lofts are the perfect base for the ultimate ski experience.

Accredited with a French 4-star rating, our family friendly, ski-in ski-out hotel offers 38 luxuriously cosy rooms all overlooking either the piste or the mountain, as well as six stylish fully equipped duplex lofts on the top two floors which have balconies, open log fires and stunning views over Courchevel Moriond and beyond.

Inviting fireplaces, settle-in sofas, and impeccable service, Portetta has an individual charm that brings our guests back time and time again. The rustic oak interiors are warm and intimate, the perfect mountain retreat.

Our restaurant, Cucina Angelina brings internationally renowned Chef Angela Hartnett’s Italian influence to the mountains. Serving up a combination of Italian influenced dishes with a nod to the local Savoyard cuisine, our relaxed restaurant is open for all whether guests are staying with us or dropping by.

Portetta is the perfect après ski spot, where guests can ski straight from the terrace onto the slopes. Fire & Ice is the liveliest terrace in Courchevel Moriond, with a wood-fired pizza oven, a buzzy bar, an open fire and flame heaters, relaxed sofa seating, live music afternoons and plenty of ice shots to go round, Fire & Ice is the place to meet and eat throughout the day.

After a day on the slopes, guests can relax, revive and rejuvenate in the Portetta Spa – a space for to relax or re-energise either pre or post a hard day’s skiing!
