About this campspace #s004758

Your host

Natalie

Set in the stunning Dordogne, under 30 grass pitches with some beautiful Open Air and Plein Air chalets. A very cool Cosy Nook Cafe/terrace with open air daybeds, great music, food trucks and a no fuss approach. For like minded people seeking a zen atmosphere... a bit like backpacking for grownups. Immaculately clean facilities are our priority. Located 7km (12mins) to Sarlat, the river, chateaux, gardens, bike tracks.

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.

Very pleasant campsite to stay.
The campsite radiates holiday and there is a nice atmosphere.
The sanitary facilities are clean and smell fresh at any time of the day.
The food trucks, the breakfast and the bar make it possible to enjoy your holiday without having to travel too much.

How was the contact with the host?
Pleasant people. The contact feels very natural and they are genuinely interested in their guests. We were immediately made to feel welcome.
