Visited Portugal last month, and here are some pictures I took of the walled village of Obidos.

Why are so many people posting towns instead of villages?

Some real villages in the Netherlands:

Barsingerhorn (770 inh)

Burgerbrug (450 inh.)

Kolhorn (800 inh.)

Oosterend (1200 inh.)

But it looks to me like it’s from the Middel Ages.
It looks like late XV or XVI century to me... Anyway they are old for sure.

"village" is a relative concept. Most of these were small villages in the middle age only to become a little bigger in the late XX century.

And besides, are the houses in Barsingerhorn from the middle age?

Guys remember: I've not put on the description of this thread, but small towns may be included here too! I never knew concept of village has particular meaning around European countries.

Beautiful! It's like being magically transported into a different time. Castle Combe is gorgeous too.

The thing with English villages is that they have captured our interest and imagination due to the widespread popularity and influence of English (British) literature, folklore, film, and culture in general.

The classic novel Wuthering Heights by author Emily Bronte, for instance, is set in the English countryside.
