Why stay here ...

A small, family-run site just 15 minutes from Sarlat-la-Canéda, Domaine des Mathevies has a laid back, welcoming atmosphere. Ideal for Families with small children, in summer the site is blooming with joy and laughter of kids under 12s. It is beautifully landscaped and the owners, Patrick and Natalie, are excellent hosts who work hard to maintain high standards.

The pitches are of a good size and there's a friendly, international feel. This is supported by the different caterers that arrive throughout the week, serving a range of cuisines from French to Moroccan.

The Dordogne is an excellent place to walk and enjoy water sports such as canoeing and kayaking. Don’t miss a trip to Sarlat which, although busy, is a charming town, or the intriguing cave paintings at Lascaux.

Great place to stay

What a lovely site!! Stayed for 3 nights September 2019. Our type of site - not the usual regimented style of Club sites. Has a laid back feel about it, large pitches with sun or shade. Lovely swimming pool, separate kiddies pool, plenty of loungers. Great bar area. Facilities spotless. Great for families and couples alike. Friendly English/Australian owners. What more could you want. Highly recommended.

Remains the best in the Dordogne

This must be our seventh visit to Domaine des Mathevies and it just gets better and better. In a way its like visiting our extended family in France. We are yet to find a better campsite throughout France. It is quirky for sure, but that makes it so good. We had a mechanical issue with our motorhome this year which meant no onboard water functions. We had to use site facilities throughout our tour. The facilities at Mathevies are large, close, hot and very, very clean. Patrick and Natalie are fine hosts and make for great company in the evenings around the bar area. Each evening there is a different type of food van arriving to cater for everyone. Also what makes Mathevies special is that it is so inclusive and cosmopolitan. All ages in tents, caravans and motorhomes, from every country in Europe. So friendly. A super pool, nice roomy pitches and very quiet after ten in the evening. You can't go wrong dropping into Mathevies. Put it onto your tour list and enjoy!

First class caravan site in Aquitaine

Once again a first class visit to Mathevies. Our first time joining the so called grey wave (which didn't manifest itself) and arriving at the start of September. Nice and quiet, empty pool, great weather and the kids back at school. Idyllic to be honest. Patrick and Natalie continue to be great hosts, always around for a chat, give advice or generally help out. Helped out now with Mateo, a friendly young man who tends to keep bar. The food vans arrive each night offering different types of food. Fish and chips still a great favourite. What makes Mathevies so very special is that it is so cosmopolitan. All ages and nationalities together. Such great togetherness and fun. Let's hope the narrow minded Brexiteers no not spoil this. Perhaps another vote. We can but hope. Thanks again P and N for a great visit. Fully recommended and see you next year.

A Jewel in the Dordogne

A Jewel in the Dordogne Owned and run by Patrick and Natalie and located deep in the Dordogne countryside, just 15 minutes from Sarlat la Caneda, Mathevies is a jewel of serenity aimed at both young and old alike. Large enough to give a feeling of space, but small enough to exude a homely closeness between the regular cosmopolitan campers, caravaners and motorhomers, pitches are of differing sizes, most are pan flat and all have a regular 10amps of power. No “Special Pitches” but water taps with high pressure are always close and drainage can be piped directly into adjacent shrubbery. Many improvements have now been completed including a brace of state of the art Gite style apartments, impeccable washrooms and toilet facilities (if required), split level pitch arrangements and washer / dryer facilities. But it’s the feel, the ambience of Mathevies that makes it the “Must go to” camping site within the Dordogne area. Whether its solitude and tranquillity you want, or a day by the large swimming pool, a game of petanque or a drink at the bar, Mathevies has a slow, summer sunshine like bohemian quality rarely experienced on the French caravanning trail. Throughout the day, quality jazz, blues or classical music wafts almost unnoticed from the bar and restaurant area. A mix of French, Belgium, Netherland, German and British campers mix socially, making Mathevies one of the friendliest sites you will ever visit. Each evening a different “Food Van” arrives offering a choice from fish and chips, creole, French, pizza and international cuisine. A policy of quietness comes into practice at 10.30pm ensuring that everyone has a great night’s sleep. Don’t forget to order your fresh bread etc last thing. This was our forth visit to Mathevies and we look forward to coming again with are large rig (Discovery plus Buccaneer Cruiser. Our favourite French caravan site all due to the friendly and professional running of Patrick (English) and Natalie (Australian). Not to be missed. The Jewel in the Dordogne. Roland & Rowena Talbot
