Cafe in Cassaniouze

The main church in the village is the Church of Notre-Dame de la Purification, at the top of the main square in the village. The stone church is dominated by a large tower with a clock and a double cross in front of the church. You can go inside the church to see some stained glass windows.

Also here in the main square you can see the town hall for Cassaniouze, a gold painted war memorial and some carved statues in wood.

The main reason we stopped at Cassaniouze was because we were doing a tour of the area, and many of the villages do not have a bar or restaurant - but Cassaniouze does have a bar/cafe that serves meals in a small outside patio area.

There is a stone fountain in the village and as well as the church in the centre of Cassaniouze village, you can also see a colombage house and a small church with a red stone belltower in the Saint-Projet area of the village.

Many visitors will be exploring the area around Cassaniouze on foot - there are several trails in the surrounding countryside which allow you to enjoy the lovely scenery of ancient chestnut forests, rivers, hills and gorges.
