Caille is a village typical of the foothills of the Alps, tucked between the Mediterranean and that mighty mountain range, nestled deep in a plain at the foot of Roux Baou peak. It welcomes visitors and is eager to share its traditions, architecture, and cultural events.
Caille’s history dates back centuries and its architectural heritage has been given pride of place by the town for several years, with a venerable chateau (private), a church decorated with 18th-century paintings, a washhouse, a bread oven, and 18th-century houses with doorframes and windowframes in hewn rock or wood, the perfect setting for a satisfying stroll.
Caille, about 40 kilometers from Grasse, sits at an altitude of 1,200 meters. It is a mountain village that offers the pleasures of easy living, with year-round shops (butchery, grocery store, bakery, inn), a small market on Saturday morning (florist, traveling bookstore), services (town hall, primary school, communal postal agency), and working farms.
Proactive associations offer a wide variety of activities all year long, making for a rich and enjoyable village life that warmly counters a somewhat harsh climate.
