Videle is a town in Teleorman County, 50 km away from Bucharest. It administrates the town of Videle and the village of Coșoaia. 

Several Roma groups are living in Videle including Caldarari (Corbeni), Lautari (Laiasi), Tuciari and Ursari. They are mostly located in Sere, in which about 90 houses are built illegally.
