This peaceful village is situated 6km from the Lot valley. The river Thèze passes nearby where you can fish for trout. It has a campsite, several bed and breakfasts and self catering gîtes. Cassagnes is a good starting point to visit the area and the bastides villages (new towns) of Villefranche du Périgord, Monpazier, Monflanquin, Tournon d'Agenais, Bonaguil Castle as well as the Lot and Dordogne Valley.

Cassagnes is perched on a hill top overlooking the Thèze Valley and the RD 673 (Fumel-Gourdon) surrounded by chestnut forests and valleys, much appreciated by hikers. Below in the Thèze Valley is a large lake where you can fish and picnic in the shade.
