Cadolive, the village

Located in the hinterland of Marseilles, and only 20 minutes from the city center the village of Cadolive is pleasantly situated in the midst of countryside to the north east of the Chaîne de l'Etoile hills.

Cadolive square

Paved lanes, flowers in clay pots which flow over into its narrow streets, even if the village has no special historic heritage, it is nonetheless charming. The ancient houses in the village center are progresively being renovated whereas in the area surrounding the village new houses and villages are slowly populating the hills.

Cadolive fountain

Walk around the labyrinth of narrow village streets you'll happen upon shady cul-de-sacs hiding the gardens of the village houses, streets which rise up and down and where the village cats calmly pass their time in the sun just waiting to be caressed by passing visitors.

Cadolive landscape

Tranquility rules in the village, often the only noise comes from the children playing in the school playground. Nothing special here, but Cadolive's charm rests in the fact that it is a is a typical village in the south of France which has known how to preserve its authenticity and conviviality.
