A village is smaller than a town or city. It is located in a rural area. Very small place which includes a small area of homes and businesses. Located in the country with a small population of a few hundred up to a thousand people. A village would be a nice friendly place to live.

@jstory07 I know only one in SoCal, but there is agriculture nearby, and I am allergic to the mold in their dust. Otherwise, I would live there. My home now comes close to the ideal, but does not really have a village or town center. Bummer.

I used to spend two years in a village of four hundred ; however, I lived in the perifery of this village far from the villagers. It wasn´t very friendly for me; that is one of the reasons I had to return to the city.

I live in a rural village and have for almost 20 years now. We moved out here as it allowed us to raise our son without the crowds of kids that we encountered in town. There is no population sign to our village, and we only have our little post office, church, grade and high schools, tavern/roadhouse and general store that offers everything from spirits to freshly cut deli meats and cheese and they scoop the best and biggest ice cream cones around! Who needs to go to town, we have it all right out here, plus we have peace and quiet and little traffic.
