Location, Location, Location.
Domaine des Mathevies, is a peaceful hamlet to the village Sainte Nathalene, which is itself a village that supports the medieval town of Sarlat. The historical centre point of the Dordogne Valley.
From our well entitled position you are within easy access of the area’s key touristic sites and facilities, Sarlat for its restaurants and markets, Beynac, Castelnaud and Domme for their fortressed castles. Lascaux and Les Eyzes for their world-famous cave paintings and prehistoric dynasty. And not forgetting the magnificent river Dordogne for its nature, swimming and canoeing.
Food & Drink
The Cosy Nook Café turns out a bevy of barista style coffees, organic teas, artisan beer and a range of great value wine is on offer thanks to a good relationship with local producers. In the evening food trucks set up on the terrace and offer a variety of local and world food.
Nearby Sarlat takes its cuisine very seriously and its winding streets are full of restaurants and bistros. For something different, Chez le Gaulois, tucked away in the centre of the old town, serves rustic platters of cheeses and charcuterie, boiled potatoes, salads and melted raclette. Service is great and the atmosphere superb. It’s small and popular so booking is advisable. There’s also Delpeyrat a family favourite in Carsac – a traditional French dining room, producing homemade delights. Out of town, try the Pech-de-Malet in Vitrac, a family owned restaurant with fabulous terrace and views across the valley (ideal for kids).

Take exit 55 from the A20 and follow the signs for the D703 (direction Sarlat). Turn right on to the D61 (direction Carlux). In the village of Carlux take the D47B towards Sainte Nathalène; turn left onto the D47 and go through the village of St Nathalène until you reach the only bar in the village. With the bar on your right, take the first road on the right (you will see an old petrol station/garage and agricultural materials) and follow it up the hill where you will pick up signs to the diminutive hamlet of Les Mathevies.
The nearest airport is at Brive-la-Gaillard, some 30km from St Nathalene. Bergerac Airport is the next closest, about 70km to the west. Bordeaux (200km) is a large international and regional airport served by many airlines. Toulouse (200km) is another large international airport served by many airlines and is equidistant to Bordeaux. By air you will almost certainly need a car or pick-up on arrival.
Train into Sarlat from either Bordeaux or Toulouse.
