Montclair Village is a residential and retail neighborhood in Oakland nestled amongst the pine trees of the upper Oakland Hills. The mountain atmosphere is laid back and the city's quaint, family-owned shops and restaurants create an unexpected small-town atmosphere in the heart of the East Bay. This leisurely environment enhances the small town appeal of the village, and the inviting atmosphere makes it comfortable for visitors and residents to spend the day shopping and sight-seeing. The residential hills of Montclair are heavily forested, and generally characterized by winding streets and large single-family houses. Small town charm and natural beauty combine to make Montclair a great place to call home.
