Caille main street
The view of Caille from a distance is superb, with its houses huddled together on a mound, perched above a vast plain. Caille is a lively village, endowed with several shops and restaurants.

It is peopled with children and petanque players "placing and shooting" their boules on the village square and calling to one another with their inimitable accent" !

Caille, church



This is still an agricultural area and there are a few farms in activity around the village.


Its main street slopes gently downwards and has a very pleasant atmosphere to it, some of the houses are clearly very old, a few still requiring restoration: if you like old buildings, take note!


Caille, houses



Also note, however, that the micro-climate here must be harsh in winter, if the size of the log heaps stacked in front of the doors is anything to go on: Winter in Caille, "ca caille" (brass monkey weather) !!! !
