We value the notion of 'small is beautiful'. We offer a relaxed environment, somewhere to just let go and forget the stresses of every day life. Let us arrange everything so that all you have to do is chill and enjoy your stay.

Tips

  • Our food trucks are legendary... people come from all over to eat great food and soak up the atmosphere.

  • Most beautiful nature and sunsets, we are located high up so we get the best of the light and the most stunning night stars.

Conscious Camping – here are some of our initiatives to help Mathevies run more sustainably:



Stop taps help us conserve water.

We compost and wood chip all garden cuttings back into the site.

We use organic weedkillers (not glyphosates).

Bio gas water heating.

We only sell souvenirs from Soft Power Education – a non-profit registered charity producing craft toys and items made by rural women in Uganda. They receive a generous local wage for their work and any profits are ploughed back into the group to buy new materials and train more women.

Nearer to home, we support local enterprises buying wine, beer and bread from family run businesses in the Dordogne.

We’ve gone paperless by emailing all invoices and PDF Welcome Packs.

Avoiding single use plastics! Bring your own plates for the food trucks, mugs for take away coffees and bags for bread.

We are in the process of installing electric car charging points.
