Chassagnes is a small medieval village which is part of the commune of Vans and is close to the following villages : Assions, Chambonas, Berrias and Casteljau. It is a fairly sparsely populated town where life is calm and peaceful. It presents itself as the gateway to the plain of the Ardèche and its riches.
