Every Minecraft survival enthusiast knows how important it is to find a village near spawn. Even if there's no blacksmith in the village, having one so close so fast makes the game that much more fun.
The difficulty of the survival game in Minecraft primarily depends on the biome where the village spawns. If you want a quick headstart, then it's better to spawn near forests, such as roofed forest, birch forest, or taiga. But if you want to make it really challenging, biomes like deserts and lonely survival islands are unique options, too.
In this list, you will find a list of Minecraft seeds that fill both needs: playing Minecraft the easy way and playing Minecraft the hard way.
In this seed, you will spawn in a forest biome next to a taiga village. One of the houses spawns on top of a hill overseeing the entire area. Under the house, you can see a vast and completely flat platform, which can be used for all sorts of fun building purposes.
Right under the village, you will find several interlinked, abandoned mineshafts. The closest treasure chest contains a golden apple, which can be found at coordinates 50, 30, 325.
Here, you will spawn at the connection of five different biomes: plains, swampland, desert, bamboo jungle, and savanna.
On top of that, there are two villages at spawn. The first one stands on a savanna biome, and the other one on the plains biome at coordinates 600, 50.
The second village also has a blacksmith that has several pieces of obsidian in his chest. And, there is a source of naturally-generated obsidian nearby.
In this seed, you will spawn at the edge of an extreme hills biome, which is near a horde of brown llamas. From there, follow the river to coordinates 300, 100 for a large village with a blacksmith.
If you follow the path to the north, you will find another village and a woodland mansion at coordinates 650, 650.
In the mansion's attic, you will find a secret room at coordinates 545, 95, 810. It has two chests containing:
Here, you will spawn very close to a taiga village that opens to the desert biome to the southeast.
At coordinates 1300, 550, you will find a very unusual desert village that has a desert temple melded with several village buildings.
Fortunately, the treasure chamber is left intact and holds a lot of great items:
Right after you spawn, go a bit to the south, where you will find a village on a small island at coordinates -400, 250. The buildings here have unusually tall foundations.
Then, head towards a patch of desert biome with a desert temple at coordinates 100, 50. The four chests inside the temple are packed with the good stuff:
Just a few hundred blocks away from spawn you will find a neat taiga village on the ocean shore at coordinates -450, 50.
It has a blacksmith and most of its buildings are on the water. If you dig under the village, you will find an abandoned mineshaft.
At coordinates -455, 15, 60, you will discover a treasure chest on a mining cart. It holds a golden apple.
If you like pretty seeds, then this Minecraft seed might become your favorite.
First of all, you spawn in the center of the village located in a large flower forest. Second, there is a taiga village standing right next to it with several very rare buildings.
Lastly, at coordinates -150, 1750, you will find a desert village standing on the ocean shore; just beyond the shore are plenty of coral reefs. All in all, you will have access to six different biomes here.
To the north of spawn, you will find a lonely village in the ocean. It resides on a patch of land at coordinates 1100, -200.
At spawn, you will also see a shipwreck. The shipwreck has two chests and a map to an abandoned treasure at coordinates 345, -23. The chest at this location is full of excellent loot:
Here, you will spawn right next to a savanna village with a forest to the north. If you travel along its edge to coordinates 650, -200, you will see another village with a blacksmith and a desert temple.
The smithy's chest only holds a bit of obsidian, but the temple is worth looking into for:
This Minecraft seed has four villages and five desert temples at spawn. One of the villages has a shipwreck in the middle of the road at coordinates 1080, 100.
The coordinates to the rest of the villages are:
The five desert temples are clumped together on a small patch of desert biome at these coordinates:
In this seed, you will spawn in a forest biome near taiga with a village at coordinates -300, 50. It has a blacksmith, and it stands on the river right between the two biomes, which is rather convenient.
Also, under the village, you will find the entrance into a massive abandoned mineshaft with a chest that contains a diamond at coordinates -254, 19, 8.
Here, you will spawn between two savanna villages at coordinates -300, 150 and -350, 100. Only one of the villages has a blacksmith, but the other one has an entrance into an abandoned mineshaft nearby.
There, you will find a chest at coordinates -456, 17, 130. It has an extremely rare item inside — an enchanted golden apple, also known as the Notch apple.
When you spawn, you will immediately see a pillager post in front of you and a rather large forest village right behind the post.
But this isn't the only village in the area. There are three more at the following coordinates:
All three villages stand on different biomes, such as desert, savanna, and plains respectively.
In this seed, you will spawn on the border of a massive taiga forest that has a gorgeous village with a blacksmith. I can be found at coordinates -1450, -900. The smithy's chest is packed with some nice loot, such as:
Under the village, you will find a skeleton dungeon at coordinates -1555, 35, -915 that holds a golden apple and an entrance into an abandoned mineshaft.
This seed has a double village at spawn!
One of the villages is situated near the desert biome at coordinates -200, 50, while the other one is located near the plains at coordinates 50, 100.
Unfortunately, neither of the villages has a blacksmith, but there is a mesa biome just around the corner with a skeleton dungeon at coordinates -216, 35, 137. This dungeon contains a chest with:
